About the Travel Foundation

Founded in 2003, the Travel Foundation is an independent charity working with the travel industry towards a sustainable future.

We enable travel companies to integrate sustainable tourism into their business - to protect the environment and create opportunities for local people in tourism destinations.

We set up projects in tourism destinations that find, test and demonstrate new ways for travel organisations to make a difference. For example we work with partners to develop:

We then turn what we learn from these projects into practical tools, training and business support to help travel companies adopt responsible practices.
