Sustainability & Slow Travel

Our mission is to travel with integrity, have a positive impact and deep understanding of the destinations we visit; to ensure the long-term health, happiness and wellbeing of people, wildlife and the planet. This is the foundation of our company ethos—slow down to see the world—a philosophy of travel that is more important than ever.

Butterfield & Robinson is committed to responsible, sustainable and ethical tourism.

Our commitment is operationalized through our Slow Travel Sustainability Plan, guided by Bioregional’s One Planet Living Sustainability Framework. This framework, consisting of 10 principles, will guide us in trip planning, influence a culture of sustainable living practices across the entire B&R ecosystem and improve the way we do business. 

One Planet Living Principles

Health & Happiness

Encouraging active, social, meaningful lives to promote good health and wellbeing. Through ‘Action Days’, the B&R team is able to take paid days off to volunteer for meaningful organizations

We established the Slow Fund to support innovative projects that are reflective of the regions that inspire them.

Whether through educational, cultural, or conservation and preservation initiatives, the Fund helps protect various forms of heritage and promotes the health of vibrant living cultures and the eco-systems that support them.
