Treat the Worldas you wish to be treated.

That’s our philosophy.

Like you, we want the world to look just as beautiful, vibrant and healthy tomorrow as it does today. Turning dreams into reality requires passionate devotion and purposeful action, so we’re doing our part with various “green” initiatives, developed in partnership with our parent company and sister brands.

ALL HANDS AND HEARTS

All Hands and Hearts is a non-profit organization that was co-founded by philanthropist and international supermodel Petra Nemcova after she survived the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. The organization rebuilds safe, resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters.

We are incredibly proud to have partnered with All Hands and Hearts to help rebuild Nibugaun School in Nepal after a devistating earthquake.

SAY GOODBYE TO SINGLE-USE PLASTICS

It is estimated that an additional eight million tonnes of plastic pour into our oceans every year. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, if nothing is done to push back against the deluge of plastics currently overwhelming our oceans there could be more plastic in the oceans than fish by 2050.

Under the guidance of our parent company, The Travel Corporation, and their not-for-profit foundation, TreadRight, we will ban more than 60 types of single-use plastics across all operations—including straws, water bottles and plastic bags—by 2022. It's all part of our commitment to ensure the environment remains vibrant for generations to come.

THE SUSTAINABLE RIVER CRUISING PROJECT

Our sister brand Uniworld pioneered a revolutionary clean water program to preserve rivers and waterways around the world, policies many others in the travel industry have since adopted. They also partner with Just a Drop to help provide clean drinking water to those who would otherwise be without. U by Uniworld enthusiastically supports similar environmental and philanthropic efforts, both onboard and onshore.

TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION

Founded in 2008 by The Travel Corporation, the TreadRight Foundation encourages sustainable tourism and has completed more than 40 projects benefitting the environment and local cultures and heritage. TreadRight Ambassador Céline Cousteau—a leading environmentalist and explorer and the granddaughter of the late Jacques Cousteau—travels the world as she works to preserve marine life as well as indigenous tribes in the Amazon.

CARBON OFFSET

As part of our continuing sustainability journey, we feel it’s increasingly important to provide our guests and our team with the necessary tools and information to allow them to make responsible travel choices whenever possible. With this in mind, we are now happy to provide you with opportunities to carbon offset your travel experience.

If you’re looking to offset your carbon footprint for an upcoming or previous travel experience, our not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation has identified four leading carbon offset programs - Conservation International Carbon Fund, myclimate, The Nature Conservancy, and Rainforest Concern – Forest Credits - that provide travelers with a number of ways in which to offset your travel experiences and a variety of carbon offset projects to choose from.

One Tree Planted

Did you know, through our One Tree Planted partnership we will plant one tree for every set of e-documents that we issue. Not only will you save a tree for not receiving printed documents, but you'll also have a tree planted in your honor — a simple move that can leave a lasting impact.
