Jetwing Sustainability Policy
Respect for the environment and a commitment to the principles of sustainable corporate management have always been at the core of Jetwing’s ethos. Most importantly, we have taken this from statement to fact across every aspect of business throughout our family of companies.
Belief that tourism cannot exist in isolation, is one of Jetwing’s guiding principles and we work to build positive relationships with the local communities in which we operate, aiming to benefit them through the support of our operations and dedicated efforts to enhance quality of life.
As a family of people and companies, Jetwing is committed towards the welfare and development of our associates. We strive to provide a safe, secure and equal-opportunity work environment where the rights of our associates are protected and associates are encouraged to reach their full potential.
Across all strategy and action, respect for ecosystems around our locations, environmentally friendly processes and care for natural resources as well as energy and waste management are fundamental to Jetwing. We are always seeking to achieve a safe and sustainable environment for our community, future generations and ourselves by considering our commitment to the environment when making business decisions.
Jetwing is dedicated towards upholding and exceeding corporate and social best practices in compliance with local and international regulations, policies and conventions and we maintain transparency and open communication with stakeholders regarding our social, environmental and economic progress and impacts.
We are proud to support The T.E.A. Project (Training, Empowerment & Awareness)-a children’s rights-led UK charity and registered INGO in Sri Lanka.
At the expressed need, and in accordance with The T.E.A. Project and the people of Galaha village, Jetwing Travels helps to improve the quality of life of vulnerable children and adolescents by implementing sustainable development projects to raise the level of education and food security, as well as further economic development while protecting the environment and preserving their unique culture. This initiative allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in tea estate communities.
Save some space in your itinerary and bring supplies for the charity project we support and you can change the lives of vulnerable children and families for the better.
