To date, TreadRight has helped support more than 35 sustainable tourism projects worldwide.
TreadRight’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. We encourage each of our partners to use this principle to guide all of their actions, whether at our regional offices or when taking guests around the world.Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ.
Founded in 2008, TreadRight was originally called The Conservation Foundation. Spearheaded by Brett Tollman, President & CEO of The Travel Corporation, and David Hosking, Global MD of Contiki Holidays, The Foundation has evolved to become the central hub of all sustainable tourism efforts within our own family of brands, as well as the destinations we visit.
Mr. Tollman has been personally involved with the World Travel & Tourism Council since 1998 and currently acts as one of the Council's Vice Chairman.
TreadRight’s past project partners include WWF, Conservation International and The National Trust in the UK. Please view our Partners Page for more information.

Destinations In Need
At times, many places in the world find themselves in need of immediate help as a result of a natural disaster, unrest or other tragedies. Our offices' partners and the destinations in which The Travel Corporation operates have all been impacted at one time or another. When tragedy strikes, TreadRight take a page out of The Travel Corporation's book, and we help. We believe it’s simply our responsibility; no more, no less, and we hope that you believe the same. Some of the organisations we have supported in the past include NZD 50,000 to the New Zealands Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and AUD 50,000 to the Australian Queensland Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.
