Headwater was created to inspire and improve lives through travel. Since we began over 30-years ago, the tension between the positive impact of travel and its damaging carbon footprint has increased. The planet we love is at risk; from melting ice caps to extreme weather events, the effects of climate change are more apparent than ever. We believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to tackle the climate emergency, and we want to be part of the solution. This means collaborating with competitors, supporting innovation, and committing to clear timeframes and targets for carbon reduction.
We are therefore delighted to be a signatory of Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency, a collective of travel businesses and organisations following the lead of other sectors in declaring a climate emergency. As Tourism Declares outlines, "We believe we have a responsibility, to tell the truth, act now and work together to help turn it around." As part of Tourism Declares:

We have joined a network of organisations, companies and individuals across the travel sector to join other industries and regions in declaring a climate emergency. The declaration commits signatories to accelerate their own emission reductions in line with IPPC advice that the world needs to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030.

Action on climate change is a key pillar of our People, Places & Planet plan, which works towards improving life through travel - for the places we visit on our adventures, the people we meet when there, and the planet which hosts us.
Here at Headwater, and at our sister company Exodus Travels, we are all passionate about the power of travel to make a positive impact on the world around us. We work hard to make sure our adventures empower and protect the communities and environments we take people to visit and we are thrilled to support this goal further through the Exodus Travels Foundation.
