Benefits of a Partner for Responsible Travel Company
To the climbing public:
By selecting a Partner Company to climb Kilimanjaro, you can be guaranteed that the company is meeting the proper treatment guidelines related to the crew. Qualification is based on merit with the Partner company attaining a minimum performance level of 85% every climbing season.
To the Partner for Responsible Travel Company:
As a Partner for Responsible Travel Company you will be demonstrating that you are ensuring fair and ethical treatment of mountain crew monitored by an independent and objective organization. In so doing, you will be reinforcing your company’s reputation for fair labor practices and as a leader in Corporate Social Responsibility.
Being a Partner Company can be a major marketing advantage proving that your company is dedicated to responsible tourism and ethical travel. It will also provide your business with greater market exposure as many clients specifically seek ethical and responsible travel companies. Once your company meets the 85% performance level, your company’s name will appear on the Partner for Responsible Travel Program’s list on IMEC and KPAP’s websites.
