“We are very proud to have been certified as a B Corps and this is just another step in our long running efforts to create the kind of company people are proud to travel with, proud to work with and proud to work for,” said the owner, Paul Cripps.

Back in 2007 Amazonas Explorer became the first ( and still the only) Peruvian tour operator to join 1% For the Planet, giving 1% of its annual turnover towards reforesting the Lares valley, with half a million trees having been planted so far and more planned this December. In 2016 they took the Travelers Against Plastic pledge, eliminating all disposable plastic bottles from their operations and they are currently working with Regenera to ensure that by 2018 all the carbon created by their operations is offset. They also plan on introducing ways for clients to offset their carbon emissions too.

As Cripps continued, “It’s a long road and a lonely road at times, but we sincerely believe that if travel is to have a future, these kind of actions are not just optional, they are essential.”
