June 30, 2006 - Bruce Poon Tip, CEO of G Adventures, Canada’s largest adventure travel company, spoke about G Adventures' commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Tourism at the inaugural United Nations World Tourism Organization Seminar on Ethics in Tourism in Quito, Ecuador.
Bruce was invited to the Conference as a guest of the Prince of Wales International Business Leaders' Forum (IBLF). The Prince of Wales is the founder of the IBLF which His Royal Highness founded in 1990 to generate long-term awareness about corporate responsibility and sustainability.
G Adventures was the only Tour Operator invited to the conference which was attended by representatives from national and local government, industry and tourism associations and NGOs.
Being a responsible eco-tour operator is at the heart of what G Adventures is all about. We are committed to offering low-impact tours that benefit traveller and host alike. We work with local communities, businesses and individuals to develop sustainable tourism opportunities that help local economies while minimizing negative environmental and cultural impacts.
We continue to take great pride in G Adventures' rapidly growing reputation as an outstanding corporate citizen worldwide.
