Nomadic Tribe is committed to responsible and environmentally sustainable tourism, following the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN, targeting more specifically Goal 13 “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”.
Nomadic Tribe upholds that Indigenous Peoples manage a third of global forests and they are the leading stewards of our environment. Their role is fundamental in the global curbing of gas emissions and they protect around 80% of the world’s biodiversity, however they are the first victims of climate change.
This is why it is imperative for Nomadic Tribe to take action on climate change and reduce the carbon emissions generated by our company and our travellers to further protect Indigenous Peoples and Traditional Knowledge.
Our travels are designed to respect the values of responsible tourism and sustainable development. We commit to become a carbon neutral Company, fighting against climate change. We intend to reduce our emissions through ecological strategies, maintaining our carbon neutrality by reducing and seeking less carbon-intensive solutions.

We’ve signed up to Tourism Declares, an initiative that supports tourism businesses, organisations and individuals in declaring a climate emergency and taking purposeful action to reduce their carbon emissions as per the advice from The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030.
Like all signatories, we have committed to the following five actions:
1. Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ within the next 12 months, which sets out our intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade.
2. Share an initial public declaration of our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’, and update on progress each year.
3. Accept current IPCC advice stating the need to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming. We’ll ensure our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ represents actions designed to achieve this as a minimum, through delivering transparent, measurable and increasing reductions in the total carbon emissions per customer arising from our operations and the travel services sold by us.
4. Encourage our suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; sharing best practice amongst peers; and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community
5. Advocate for change. We recognise the need for system change across the industry, and call for urgent regulatory action to accelerate the transition towards zero carbon air travel.
