Our Future-Fit Pioneer commitment…

Ziptrek Ecotours recognize the crucial role every business must play in creating a Future-Fit Society – one that is environmentally restorative, socially just and economically inclusive – and we are committed to playing our part.

We aspire to become a Future-Fit Business because we believe that our long-term success is tied to the value we provide to society. That means we must eliminate all of the potential negative impacts associated with what we buy, what we sell, and what we do.

If Ziptrek was a person, what sort of citizen might we be?

The founders of Ziptrek have chosen to be in tourism for two reasons: the disproportionate scale of tourism as a sector on the world’s economy AND the direct influence and significant impact of travel experiences on people. Our aim is not only to be the change, but inspire action through our business.

Through our business model we seek to speed up society’s transition to future-fitness and by assisting others on the journey. We acknowledge that a business-as-usual approach isn’t enough.
This statement signals our intent to transform how we do things. We will lead by example and encourage other businesses to do the same by sharing our progress annually. We will publish our first Future-Fit Statement of Progress within the next 12 months.
