Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Arctic cruise, Spitsbergen

Environment

We align our workings with the Spitsbergen protection of environment and cultural heritage safety. We have chosen a smaller cruise ship to facilitate a smaller group, thus minimise waste and pollution. As an environmentally conscious action we rid of waste when we are on shore and not into the ocean to create less impact and destruction of such a pristine and fragile ecosystem/location in which some larger cruise ships do not facilitate.

Before the adventure begins we send out information electronically on the Arctic environment highlighting what to bring, advice and how to contribute positively through sustainable initiatives of waste management and how to correctly engage with your surroundings. We take our environmental responsibility serious and like to remind the people taking part in our expeditions that they should too; further influenced by our education on route via the expedition leader and team.

We also strive to make independent sustainability initiatives a part of day to day work. Our offices are striving towards a paperless work space, developing and sending all information and work online and minimising our use of print, printing to specific orders. We encourage our staff to reduce their contribution to pollution via CO2 gas with our bike payment programs for staff and where possible, our offices use 100% green energy.

Community

The trip begins in Longyearbyen in which we encourage people to explore and contribute to the local community such as visiting the Svalbard Gallery in which displays various works from local artists.

On this specific trip to the Arctic, the MAD Project will be directly benefited by means of a portion of berth sales on the trip. The MAD Project effectively helps support and build on empowering local communities. This is done by the supplying of tools and/or support, allowing communities to build a better future.

We currently work with 3 different charities, giving us a broad spectrum and diversifying where our money goes. We work with Project Peru in the UK who run an orphanage in Zapallal in the shanty town outskirts of Lima, ANIA in Peru which is a high profile Peruvian NGO working with children and helps to teach them about their local environment and how to manage it affectively.

We also corroborate with foundations in Australia whom work on several development projects in Latin America and around the world. We help these charities by fundraising treks, donations as a company through our clients and through many of our customers who volunteer their time and expertise. These charities are close to our core of supporting the environment and children in need.
