The Travel Corporation’s annual Impact Report details progress made by TTC and TreadRight against the 11 goals of the group’s 5-year sustainability strategy How We Tread Right, launched in September 2020. Below are our 2023 TreadRight grant partner achievements.


TreadRight Foundation prioritizes projects that restore the planet and protect biodiversity, to lend support to TTC’s net zero journey and Climate Action Plan, which is committed to restoring nature.
