All tourism potentially has environmental, social and economic impacts on the destination involved. At Southern Cone Journeys, therefore, we design and operate our trips in a responsible manner, aiming to promote sustainability on each of these three levels. This set of guidelines is intended to help companies, customers and local suppliers recognize their common responsibilities as well.
We provide all clients with the World Tourism Organization’s suggested Code of Ethics for the Responsible Tourist and Traveller and encourage them to read our blog on responsible tourism (http://southernconejourneys.blogspot.com/), which provides useful tips on how to behave responsibly during their trip and make the most of the experience both for them and their host communities. We also supplement this advice with information on the culture, customs, language, tipping, and appropriate dress code of the destinations they will visit. Our guides are always ready to assist travelers with any questions they may have regarding their interaction with local communities.
In addition, we have the following considerations to achieve the triple bottom line of sustainability in our trips:
We have made all of our suppliers aware of this policy and, in some cases, work with them to develop their own.
At our office, we strive to minimize our impact on the environment and reduce the amount of energy we use. Some measures we have in place are:
Our brochure is only printed when required and we always review the materials used and available technologies (i.e. recyclable vs. recycled) with our suppliers whenever we produce printed materials.
