About the role
As we mentioned above, we take our responsibility as a company: especially because we work in an industry which is not always so kind for our planet, our climate, local communities or ecosystems. This is why Charlie’s Travels is committed to sustainability, it is in our DNA and it is an important part of our business model. To be able to offer the same unique and authentic and honest experience in 3030, we have to take action. Already now, we see there is a gap between skills, capabilities, structure of what is required in the next years and what the local communities can offer. Moreover, our sustainable tourism efforts will lead to higher quality and enable growth in the future.
Charlie’s Travels has developed a 3 pillar structure to organize our efforts around and this forms the basis of our Sustainable Tourism Strategy 2020.
1. Sustainable Community Development
2. Carbon and Ecological Footprint Mitigation
3. Cultural Intrusion & Behavior
The structure is set up, the ideas are there, but there is still a long, interesting and challenging journey to come! Together with the General Manager and support from all teams, you will further develop and rollout our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy for the coming years. How can we make Charlie’s Travels and hopefully travel in Africa more sustainable? Working with our local partners to expand our business together in an honest way (maybe even setting up a sustainable tourism academy!), making sure our trips have maximum positive impact but little emission and sharing our norms and values with clients, colleagues, partners and the world. That’s it in a nutshell!
