How We Tread Right

Make Travel Matter Experience

How We Tread Right (HWTR)
is The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) new five-year sustainability strategy, which sets the mandate on sustainability at Highland Explorer Tours and our sister travel companies. Our strategy is based on 11 measurable goals developed to address Highland Explorer Tours impact on Planet, People, and Wildlife. These goals, anchored to the United Nations’ Global Goals and address both the environmental impact and community impact of our business and operations. 

We are committed to transparency. To learn more about the progress we are making against these goals, view our 2023 Impact Report here

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 Highland Explorer Tours, and our global give-back efforts.


Conservation and protection by targeting animal welfare and conservation, and ethical wildlife experiences through TreadRight’s Animal Welfare Policy.
