EVAN EVANS CARES

POWERED BY TREADRIGHT

  • SINGLE USE PLASTICS

    What began in 2018 with a ban of more than 60 types of single-use plastics in our offices quickly expanded into part of a much larger initiative. In 2019, we stopped selling plastic water bottles on our coaches and now encourage guests to fill reusable water bottles. To-date we've diverted over 200,000 plastic headsets from landfill through a recycle and reuse program. By 2022, we aim to eliminate all unnecessary single-use plastics across our entire business.

  • COACH TRAVEL

    We aim to ensure that our fleet is as efficient and eco-friendly as possible. As we don't own our own coaches, we aren't tied down to older vehicles that pollute the air and damage the environment. This means we can regularly update and refresh our fleet and guarantee they are compliant with the highest European emission standards. Coach travel has also been proven to reduce congestion and create less pollution per passenger than travelling by either car or plane.

  • RECYCLED MATERIALS

    Evan Evans is committed to using 100% recycled paper for the body stock of all of our brochures. Across The Travel Corporation Family of Brands, we save approximately 37,100 trees per year through using recycled paper, and contribute to a significant reduction of waste being deposited into landfills.

THE TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION

Evan Evans is proud to be a brand partner of the TreadRight foundation. To date, TreadRight has supported some 50-plus sustainable tourism projects around the world. These projects encompass the three pillars of TreadRight - People, Planet and Wildlife, and support is provided through donations and grants to trusted partners.


HOW WE TREAD RIGHT (HWTR)

How We Tread Right (HWTR) is The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) new five-year sustainability strategy, which sets the mandate on sustainability at Evan Evans and our sister travel companies.

Our strategy is based on 11 measurable goals developed to address Evan Evan’s impact on Planet, People, and Wildlife. These goals, anchored to the United Nations’ Global Goals , address:

  • Planet – sustainability and conservation by targeting climate change, sustainable food production and responsible consumption through carbon management, renewable energy, the food cycle, waste reduction, and the elimination of single-use plastics.
  • People – community support and cultural preservation by targeting overtourism through the inclusion of new Make Travel Matter experiences, the creation of a standalone strategy to encourage greater diversity and inclusion at Evan Evans, and our global give-back efforts.
  • Wildlife – conservation and protection by targeting animal welfare and conservation, and ethical wildlife experiences through TreadRight’s Animal Welfare Policy.

OUR CLIMATE ACTION PLAN

Goals #1 and #2 of our sustainability strategy, How We Tread Right (HWTR) respectively commit to becoming carbon neutral by 2030 or sooner, and to ensuring that 50% of our electricity is secured from renewable sources by 2025. To ensure we are successful, we’ve built a Climate Action Plan. Our five-point plan will help us manage the carbon footprint of our business and trips, and prioritizes reducing and removing emissions ahead of offsetting. In addition, we commit to learning and adapting as technology and innovation help us in our transition to a low-carbon business.

Our plan builds on progress made to date and evaluates how we become a part of the global effort to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century, as outlined by the International Panel on Climate Change.

Beginning in 2022, all our offices and employee air business travel will be offset as part of our Climate Action Plan. In partnership with our carbon offset provider, South Pole, we will compensate these emissions by investing in a verified forest conservation offset project in Victoria, Australia.
