TreadRight

The TreadRight Foundation

At Red Carnation Hotels and parent company The Travel Corporation we understand that travel matters; it allows us to explore the world and gain a deeper understanding of each destination, its history and culture, through enriching experiences. We also recognize that it is our responsibility to help protect the places we visit and take care of the world around us.
 
Created as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s family of brands, The TreadRight Foundation is a not-for-profit that works to help ensure the environment and communities we visit remain vibrant and preserved for generations to come. To date, TreadRight has donated more than USD 2.5 million to sustainable tourism projects worldwide. Red Carnation Hotels is proud to be an active founder and supporter of TreadRight’s projects and work. Go to The TreadRight Foundation to learn more.
 
TreadRight’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. We encourage each of our partners to use this principle to guide all of their actions, whether at our regional offices or when taking guests around the world. By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions across the world that define each unique region. Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ. To learn more about our past and current work at TreadRight, please visit us at treadright.org.

The Travel Corporation’s guiding principle is to provide enriching travel experiences for our guests across the globe – this means that the health of the world is critical to us, and we therefore believe we have a responsibility to protect all that makes a destination unique.

Destinations In need

At times many places in the world find themselves in need of immediate help as a result of a natural disaster, unrest or other tragedies.  In many of these instances The Travel Corporation provides assistance through The TreadRight Foundation.  For instance, they donated NZD 50,000 to the New Zealand Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and AUD 50,000 to the Australian Queensland Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.

The foundation has recently launched new project partnerships with WildAid and The Wilderness Foundation. 

WildAid focuses on reducing the demand for illegal wildlife trade with the strong and simple message: when the buying stops, the killing can too. The organisation has initiatives focused on protecting elephants, rhinos, tigers, sharks, mantas and other marine life across the globe. 

The Wilderness Foundation is a project-driven conservation and leadership organisation that encourages, plans and protects wild lands and wilderness. The organisation is involved with active, sustainable social intervention programs, focusing on four main program areas: conservation, social intervention, experiential education, and advocacy & awareness. 


Encouraging everyone to travel responsibly

TreadRight believes that travel is hugely beneficial to the individual - it broadens the mind and enriches our lives. However, each of us has a personal responsibility to protect the places we visit, including  the communities, culture, and environment.  To ensure that our impact is light and positive we’ve provided travellers with these 25 tips.

TreadRight is The Travel Corporation’s hub for all corporate social responsibility efforts, and manages a long-standing grants program that benefits sustainable tourism projects. Along with each brand, they are working to ensure that the environment and communities they explore remain vibrant for future generations.
