We have a social, cultural and environmental responsibility to respect the destinations we visit and the people who live there
Legacy Ventures is committed to the preservation of the environment. We seek to understand the impacts of our activities on the environment at local, regional and global levels, to minimize these impacts and to find sustainable solutions to environmental concerns. We believe that our activities should benefit the local people and their environments and we strive to ensure that the local culture and communities form an integral part of our trips. We wish to maximize the benefits of tourism to each destination, whilst minimizing the environmental impact whilst abroad.
We strive to make all of our tours carbon neutral. To this extent we offer all of our clients the opportunity to offset their carbon emissions from their flights by adding a voluntary contribution to the total price of the tour. This contribution goes to our carbon-offset partner Climate Care who supports a variety of projects such as efficient stoves in Uganda, wind turbines in India and water filters in Kenya.
People and communities
Our central ethos, to make every program live on in the memories of our participants, has remained a key to our success. On every tour we endeavor to involve and promote organizations and individuals that demonstrate innovative and inspirational practices which effect positive change in underprivileged environments. We work with some fantastic organisations and every year we raise funds and encourage our participants to stay connected and help them further going forward, leaving a ‘legacy’. We are happy to discuss with you further how to incorporate these activities in your program.
