Sustainable Travel International has moved the whole tourism industry forward in amazing ways. It is hard to believe how much they have accomplished over the years. The most impressive thing about them is how well they connect everyone from the big companies, to destinations, to individual tour operators with one informed vision for how tourism can help make the world a better place.

Southern Cone Journeys became a member of Sustainable Travel International (STI) last year and we've had the best experience so far. The webinars have been incredibly useful since the information and experiences shared are valuable and applicable to our business as a responsible inbound tour operator in Chile. We are also undergoing the STEP certification process, which has been great to help us identify what we're doing right and what we can improve in order to be even more sustainable in the future. Soon we'll be the first company in Chile with this certification and we look forward to collaborating with STI to promote sustainability in tourism in the country. This partnership is one of the best things that has happened to us!

STI has done an impressive job of creating programs to help destinations and businesses around the world understand how to make their supply chain more sustainable and more supportive of a healthy people and planet. They've been leaders in the effort to create a single global standard for sustainability practices in the tourism sector and their work has helped to move the industry as a whole towards a better future.

STI is doing a great job. Amongst many important tasks, their educational resources that are available to travelers and travel providers are very valuable. They influence the industry in a positive way and steer it in the right direction. STI supports the use of carbon offsets, enabling travelers and travel providers to offset unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions.

STI is one of the leaders in setting standards in sustainable tourism practices...both close to home and to the far corners of the earth. I know of very few other non-profit organizations that are able to achieve so much with so few resources and minimal overhead. The STI team and its dedicated volunteers are wildly passionate in advocating their vision for travel that respects the earth and all of its people, flora and fauna.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being a leader in establishing an the sustainable travel eco-certification program (STEP).

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

greatly expand the traveler's philanthropy program as this is one of the main things STI can do to meaningfully differentiate itself and deliver on its core purpose.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my interaction with the co-founders, Brian Mullis and Peter Krahenbuhl.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

deeply passionate, committed, focused to achieving STI's mission; they are also a great bunch of fun-to-be-around people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

dramatically expend and extend the reach and visibility of its programs and services.

Ways to make it better...

the organization had not tried to do too many things all at once.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

how to generate sufficient revenue in order to bring on additional staff to accommodate its expected growth.

One thing I'd also say is that...

STI should stay out of the business of actually booking travel but instead be the premier evangelist and advocacy organization for environmentally and socially responsible sustainable tourism.
