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 TREADRIGHT

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.

MAKE TRAVEL MATTER EXPERIENCES

Evan Evans has committed to implementing Make Travel Matter Experiences (MTM) into our incredible trips and itineraries. As a company of travel lovers, we know what makes an impactful travel experience that benefits the places we explore – but we wanted our community of travellers to be sure. So, we created an online tool to help us measure the positive impact Make Travel Matter Experiences have on the traveler and communities we explore.

Our proprietary assessment tool, developed by our TreadRight team and endorsed by industry experts, is exclusive to Evan Evans and our sister brands. When you choose an MTM Experience you can be certain you are directly advancing global efforts to achieve the United Nations Global Goals.

 

OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

At Evan Evans we are conscious of our carbon footprint and have made a commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 or sooner. To achieve this, we are measuring the emissions associated with our owned offices and properties, as well as those associated with our business air travel, and waste and water use. We have in place a carbon management plan to drawdown our direct emissions before offsetting unavoidable emissions with high-quality, verified carbon offsets. We will drawdown our emissions through clean energy, low-emission transportation, conservation and through the support of emerging low-impact technologies.

Evan Evans is in the process of measuring the carbon footprint of our trips with the goal of offsetting these trips in future years. Stay tuned for more!

CARBON OFFSETS

Evan Evans has partnered with leading offset provider South Pole to offset our business, allowing us to offset what we cannot reduce. You too can purchase carbon offsets to cancel out the emissions produced by your travels. South Pole has 700+ high quality, and verifiable offset projects to choose from around the world.
