Responsible business practices are important to Peregrine. Maintaining our integrity and upholding principles of sustainable development is core to our travel ethos. These values are ingrained in the culture of our business, from the way we run our offices to the structure of our trips. We also hold our staff and travellers accountable – encouraging them to uphold principles of responsible travel while they are abroad. We consider these principles to include respecting the people, cultures and local environments that one encounters while travelling, to contribute to sustainable development and to encourage the dissemination of good will and cross-cultural sharing. We are committed to making a positive contribution wherever possible. If you have any feedback on our approach, please feel free to get in touch.
To travel responsibly, simply consider your attitude and choices while abroad – respect the local people, their economy, culture and of course the environment in which they live.
To ensure we always promote responsible travel, we have embedded some key features into our trips:
- Staying in locally owned accommodation
- Using public transport wherever possible
- Patronising a range of local suppliers to ensure the economic benefit is spread
- Managing water and electricity resources
- Avoiding or minimising plastic waste
- Experiences that promote cross-cultural understanding
- Buying and eating locally
- Ensuring that the most vulnerable members of communities– children, animals and women – aren’t exploited in any way
In addition to the Responsible Business strategies embedded into our operations, Peregrine Adventures is committed to investing in the local communities we visit. To ensure we are offering adequate support to a variety of projects, Peregrine has partnered with The Intrepid Foundation. Through this partnership, we can offer our travellers a more substantial base for donation and a greater selection of projects to support.
We have a great respect for the environment; it not only sustains us, but also provides us with much of the natural beauty that we are lucky enough to explore through our journeys abroad. As such, we are committed to protecting the environment and using resources in a fair, efficient and responsible way wherever possible.
We design our trips in a manner that minimises the physical impact on the destinations we travel to. We want to ensure these beautiful locations are just as lovely for years and generations to come.
