We believe in making travel matter. As supporters of The TreadRight Foundation, Springbok Atlas Charter promotes responsible tourism activities which serve to protect the planet, its people and its wildlife. Through our corporate responsibility efforts, we aim to uplift and serve the communities in which we operate.
Among our charitable outreach initiatives, we provide transport for CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation). Our community upliftment projects include sponsoring Western Cape Schools with netball bibs. We are passionate about helping children and sponsor transport to organisations that work closely with previously disadvantaged communities, with the aim to uplift and empower our youth.
How We Tread Right
How We Tread Right (HWTR) is The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) new five-year sustainability strategy, which sets the mandate on sustainability at Springbok Luxury Charter and our sister travel companies.
Our strategy is based on 11 measurable goals developed to address Thompsons’ impact on Planet, People, and Wildlife. These goals, anchored to the United Nations’ Global Goals, address:
Planet – sustainability and conservation by targeting climate change, sustainable food production and responsible consumption through carbon management, renewable energy, the food cycle, waste reduction, and the elimination of single-use plastics.
People – community support and cultural preservation by targeting overtourism through the inclusion of new Make Travel Matter experiences, the creation of a standalone strategy to encourage greater diversity and inclusion at Springbok Luxury Charter, and our global give-back efforts.
Wildlife – conservation and protection by targeting animal welfare and conservation, and ethical wildlife experiences through TreadRight’s Animal Welfare Policy.
