Our purpose is to inspire and create transformative journeys that positively benefit both people and the planet.
Your choice of a walking holiday is a positive choice for local communities and our planet.
We follow your lead by committing 10% of our annual profits to the environment.
Walking is by its nature a low impact and sustainable activity that authentically connects you with your destination. Our travellers make a choice to take the lowest impact form of travel by choosing a walking holiday, we need to honour that in our operations.
At RAW Travel we are proud of our reputation as one of the leaders in sustainable travel. We recognise our responsibility to continuously improve, pioneer and drive change for a better planet. Every single step we take has an impact. The challenge is to minimise our negative footprint while maximising opportunities to make a real difference. To give back and empower change.
That’s where RAW’s ambitious ‘10% FOR THE PLANET’ initiative comes in. While sustainability has always been at the heart of everything we do, we have made a bold commitment to go one step further, fully carbon offsetting all our operations and flights.We commit 10% of our annual profits to drive positive change without passing a surcharge or hidden costs onto our travellers.
Climate Positive Hiking Company
That’s our goal, and we’re committed to going beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions. By removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than what we emit we will not just help protect our planet but actively contribute to its recovery and regeneration. We have partnered with Tasman Environmental Markets to support high quality, third-party-verified carbon offset projects which offer real benefits for local communities. These will offset all the carbon from not only our all our trips and head office operations but also any flights we book.
Under our ‘1 walk, 1 tree’ program, we are also planting native trees in Australia for every customer, contributing to local biodiversity programs and the establishment of bio links. Planting trees is proven to be one of the most simple and effective ways we can combat rising C02 levels. As part of our climate positive commitment, we are a founding signatory of Tourism declares a network of leading travel companies and individuals around the world coming together to declare a climate emergency.
