Environmental Policy:
We believe that when the experience of travel is delivered in the right way it offers an optimal learning environment of immense educational value, giving rise to a memorable life experience and helping with the personal and holistic development of a young adult. However, we acknowledge tourism’s impacts on the worldwide and local environment and communities, which can be both positive and negative. In response, we endeavour to take every reasonable step towards becoming the leading sustainable provider in school travel, considering environmental, economic and social issues across the breadth of our operation; from our UK office, to our UK and overseas suppliers, and our managed overseas ClubHotel and Chateau programmes. This document sets out our current working practices and our improvement objectives to achieve sustainable operations and working practices, as defined by the World Commission on Environment & Development Brundtland Report as:

‘Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs’
