Transat proudly supports sustainable tourism initiatives
One of the most important aspects of tourism is the opportunity it provides to discover the environment, heritage and diversity of regions visited—and, consequently, to take an interest in their conservation and enhancement.
Communities at travel destinations are increasingly mindful of the value of their heritage, and the need to develop initiatives to preserve that richness. All over the world, community stakeholders are taking responsibility for protecting and enhancing their heritage and environments, and implementing exciting sustainable tourism initiatives. Such actions are key to the long-term viability of tourism products and services at these destinations.
Initiatives like these deserve to be encouraged. With that in mind, in 2007 we set up a program to provide financial assistance to communities in destinations we serve. We are proud to support organizations in their implementation of projects aimed at protecting and enhancing their regions’ natural and cultural heritage, or maximizing the positive socio-economic impacts of tourism, while drawing inspiration from the principles of sustainability.
