We recognise the more we grow, the more we can deliver on that commitment, as a multi-brand global business. We call this Growth with Purpose, as we believe the two are inextricably linked.
That’s why, we’ve combined our sustainability reporting with our financial results, to show how being a responsible business can not only result in short-term, but long-term value for our stakeholders.
The report brings together our annual report and our ninth Communication on Progress Report for the United Nations Global Compact the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, of which we’ve been a signatory since 2008. It provides our stakeholders with full accountability and visibility of our worldwide business operations, and includes both our performance and vision in the following areas:
- Our external environment
- Responsible business practices
- Financial performance
- Customer satisfaction
- Employee engagement
- Employee wellbeing
- Our relationship with the communities we operate in
- Corporate governance
As the world’s largest adventure travel company, we feel a responsibility to make a real difference to the communities and places in which we operate. Our 2019 Integrated Annual Report proves that there doesn’t need to be a choice between this purpose and profitability either.
