THE WORLD’S BEEN GOOD TO US.And we’d like to return the favor.

Mother Nature has provided us with a beautiful playground, and supporting the places we visit and those who call our destinations home is essential to ensuring the future of travel is equally bright. 

Over a decade ago, we introduced a clean water programme to preserve our rivers and waterways, which many in the industry have since followed. As a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation and Uniworld, we partner with the TreadRight Foundation to help ensure the environment and communities we visit remain vibrant and preserved for generations to come. 

Travel has provided us the chance to give back and lift up others, and we strive to do so whenever possible.


Single Use Plastics

SAY GOODBYE TO SINGLE-USE PLASTICS

It is estimated that an additional eight million tons 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.


WE Charity

We are partnering with WE Charity to help provide communities with clean water to drink and use for cooking; healthy sanitation facilities for washing and going to the bathroom; and infrastructure like irrigation or catchment systems to facilitate food production as well as working to educate communities about healthy hygiene practices and how to prevent waterborne disease.


TreadRight Foundation

Founded in 2008 by Uniworld’s parent company, The Travel Corporation, the TreadRight Foundation encourages sustainable tourism and has completed more than 40 projects that have benefited the environment as well as local culture and heritage. In 2015, TreadRight named their first ambassador, leading environmentalist and explorer Céline Cousteau. Céline has traveled the world while working to preserve marine life as well as indigenous tribes in the Amazon.

Economic Responsibility

By introducing our guests to these local and sustainable ventures, we are able to provide truly unique experiences to travellers while bringing economic opportunity to the region.


Carbon Offset

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 travellers 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

Small actions can make a big difference, as proven true with our One Tree Planted partnership. After booking your cruise, if you elect to receive your pre-cruise documents digitally, we will plant a tree in your honor– a simple move that can leave a lasting impact.
