What We Do

Expert advice and guidance

Our expert advisors support tourism businesses and destination authorities to integrate sustainable tourism policies and practices into their organisations. Our aim is to ensure that tourism operates routinely in a more sustainable way, creating products that are better for everyone and resilience for the future. Our tailor-made support might be about refining sustainability strategies and understanding where best to focus effort, or about creating best practice standards and codes of conduct, or improving sustainability throughout the supply-chain and within new product development. Such support often forms part of our destination projects, is offered to our regular donors and can be provided as a stand-alone activity.

“The work that we’ve been doing with The Travel Foundation has been immensely rewarding. Their projects are informing and underpinning our sustainability strategy, supporting employee engagement, benefitting our suppliers and more. It is especially heartening to see the long term change taking place within destinations as a result of this work and the benefits that this brings to local communities.”

Jane Ashton, Director of Sustainability for TUI Group

“Sustainable tourism is something the company is investing in both emotionally and financially, and we are glad have the experts at the Travel Foundation to guide us. We want our Travel Counsellors to feel empowered, with tools, training and knowledge, to build their own sustainable tourism businesses”

Steve Byrne, CEO Travel Counsellors
