About Us

Humans are a nomadic species. Driven by our need to recreate, contemplate, connect and reflect, we are on the go. Which has made travel and tourism the world’s largest industry with enormous and unsustainable impact on energy, water, land and food use.

At Sustainable Travel International, we believe that people’s inherent wanderlust, their desire for new experiences and concern for the places they care for most can inspire the protection of the world’s natural and cultural bounty and generate economic opportunity in destinations that rely on visitors.

Since 2002, we have been charting a new course for travel and tourism — one that leads to a healthier environment, greater economic opportunity, social justice and the protection of natural and cultural resources.
