Create positive change through the joy of travel.
That's our mission. It’s been on a journey, while staying true to itself – just like us.
Since the very beginning we’ve seen travel as a force for good.
Over 30 years later, we’re super proud to call ourselves the world’s largest purpose-led adventure travel brand. We’re here to give back – and have a great time while doing it.
We want to be the best travel company not just in the world, but for the world.
We do this in lots of different ways (check out our United Nations Sustainable Development Goals if you love details). We even report on them all too.
Here are just some of the headlines:
Our purpose is to inspire, create, share and lead the best travel experiences ever – for both people and the planet. That's why we’ve been carbon-neutral since 2010, carbon offset all our trips, and have a seven-point commitment plan that supports our Climate Emergency declaration. We are the first global tour operator with verifiable science-based targets through the Science Based Targets initiative, to limit global warming to 1.5C in the next decade. We’re here to find solutions.
B CORP™ CERTIFICATION
We are the world’s largest travel B Corporation™. We’ve always been about balancing profit and purpose, and in 2018 we joined the B Corp™ community to certify our commitment to using business as a force for good.
It's an independent global stamp of approval of the work we already do – like evolving to be more inviting, inclusive, engaging and you-friendly with our new Ethical Marketing Guidelines. It's all backed up by our vision of changing the way we all see the world.
COMMUNITIES WE VISIT
Our purpose is totally tied to our product (that's our trips). We're all about sustainable, experience-rich travel. That means using our trips as a force for good, as well as good times. We're genuinely connected to and invested in the places we go, the people we meet along the way, and the communities at the heart of every Intrepid experience. We think globally, act locally, and engage personally.
From Community-based tourism to new experiences that support First Nations and Indigenous communities around the world, we’ve been retooling our itineraries to dial back the carbon and dial up the impact. With our legendary local leaders out front, we’re a global collective, local at heart. Get out there and see it.
THE INTREPID FOUNDATION
The Intrepid Foundation is our not-for-profit. We accelerate community-led sustainable development through travel, enabling our partners to solve global issues locally. With our travellers’ help, it’s contributed more than AU $12 million to over 130 community organisations since 2002.
That’s just a snapshot of the work we do beyond creating and leading the best travel experiences ever. From giving back to local communities to positively affecting the environment, we have a powerful impact on the planet and its people. Equality, animal welfare, reconciliation and more, we are dedicated to sustainability in all its forms.
We’re here – and here to do good – for both people and the planet. Find out more:
