How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
In 2011 we raised over £25,000 for Civic Force, a Japanese NGO at the forefront of aid relief in Japanís Tohoku region which was devastated after the March 11th 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Part of this money was raised through a charity half marathon run by 9 members of staff.
We recycle paper, cardboard, tins, cans and plastic in all three offices (Bristol, Boulder, Nagoya). Staff are actively encouraged to print double-sided using the toner saver setting. 95% of staff walk or cycle to work and we use public transport (mostly trains to London) for business trips.
All customers receive a detailed Info-Pack which includes: Japanese language and etiquette tips e.g. how to use a Japanese hot spring bath, when to remove your shoes, tipping
