ALL are welcome to attend the Power of Partnership Stewardship Summit and/or engage in our programs regardless of age, race, ethnicity, ability, gender, sexuality or religion. We approach every event with accessibility and inclusivity in mind, ensuring that we are proactive in everyone’s ability to participate.
We commit to approaching local communities in a way that elevates the local voice and respects their vision of tourism. We encourage full, effective, and equitable participation and treat community partners as equal program partners.
In every place we work, we will focus on treading lightly. We commit to respecting local laws and environmental guidelines, limiting the use and purchase of single-use plastics, opting for reusable and sustainable products wherever possible, and clean-up all waste, making sure to compost and recycle when available.
We will support respectful visitor-host interactions that foster responsible tourism practices, benefitting the well-being of the culture and environment.
We commit to working with partners who share our commitment to conducting business in a sustainable manner. Partners who are creating change through their businesses, supporting others (whether it be their own employees, the local community, or more global causes), creating more positive than negative impact on the environment and treating their employees in an ethical manner are core values of the Power of Partnership Stewardship Summit considered when choosing a supplier.
We strive to ensure we use sustainable materials that have low impact on the environment and support organizations that promote safe and equitable labor practices. We will limit waste by paying close attention to needed inventory and ensure the item provides added value and a long shelf-life.
We pledge to minimize (and eliminate if possible) the use of single use plastics at all hosted programs and events, within our home/virtual offices, and during staff travel.
Nearly one-third of all the food produced in the world goes to waste and is responsible for 8% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions. We recognize the importance sustainable food practices play in the health of a community and the health of our planet. We are committed to reducing the negative impact of food by executing sustainable food practices at all of our hosted programs.
All meals hosted by Power of Partnership Stewardship Summit will focus on the following items whenever possible:
