OUR COMMITMENTS & SUSTAINABILITY JOURNEY
AT E-VOYAGES GROUP, SUSTAINABILITY IS OUR COMMITMENT WHICH WE HAVE EMBEDDED AT THE CORE OF OUR STRATEGY, OPERATIONS AND BUSINESS CULTURE.
As a leading tour operator, we play a significant role and want to influence the travel industry to be more sustainable by sharing our practises. It is our policy to continuously evolve and implement best practices that deliver and promote respect of humans, environment and culture in the way we plan, operate and monitor our business.
To extend our sustainability journey, we have developed five strategic sustainability goals that drive our daily activities.
RECYCLE & GO GREEN
We believe in “less is more” and have implemented strict recycle and go green policies in our offices which we highly follow and control.
Our policies regulate and control the use of ink, energy, paper and other components promoting the use of recycled materials and avoiding waste.
We promote online materials instead of paper when possible and orient our choices towards sustainable and environment respectful products.
We also ensure all our offices recycle items such as glass, paper, cardboard, hard plastics, and other recyclables.

THE TEN PRINCIPLES
OF THE UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL COMPACT
Corporate sustainability starts with a company’s value system and a principled approach to doing business. This means operating in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Responsible businesses enact the same values and principles wherever they have a presence, and know that good practices in one area do not offset harm in another. By incorporating the Global Compact principles into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
The UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles are derived from: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
