What is Clean Travel


Clean Travel brings you  the most enriching sustainable travel experiences on the planet.


We are an independent community of local travel organisations that offer unique ethical experiences.


We believe that our innovative approach to tourism has the power to revitalise communities.


We are committed to building a community of local changemakers that can connect with the growing number of conscious travellers.


Our partners are certified as sustainable travel operators and we invest in these local leaders and their organisations so that they can prosper.


The three pillars of the Clean Travel Certification model are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Benefit the Community


Hire local staff, provide fair wages and support local businesses (SGDs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10).

Protect Cultural Heritage


Celebrate cultural diversity alongside the conservation of wildlife and nature (SDGs 11, 16, 17).

Eco-friendly and sustainable 


Proactively working towards a cleaner, safer, healthier environment (SDGs 7, 12, 13,14, 15).

We ensure that a partner strongly adheres to at least one of these three pillars so that you can have peace of mind that you’re making a positive impact  with your trip.


What began with our first partner in Nepal, has swelled into a thriving community of partners calling for local change in the global travel industry.
