Environmental Policy

At Aliwen Incoming we are fully committed to working in a respectful way towards the environment always fulfilling the legal requirements that apply to our activity as well as generating awareness in our passengers and therefore creating a positive bond with the destinations that they visit. In addition, we seek to pass on, to our team and our suppliers, the importance of good environmental practices.

We believe that tourism is a tool for sustainable growth and respect for cultural diversity

Seeking environmental conservation and cultural heritage
Aliwen Incoming is implementing the following practices:

    • Complying the environmental legal requirements.
    • Reducing the energy consumption & waste production and encouraging our team to replicate at their homes.
    • Using recyclable materials and reducing the use of those which are not.
    • Encouraging the separation of our waste, including a compost in the office.
    • Actively seeking for products that generate less impact and pollution.
    • Training our team on environmental and sustainability issues, increasing awareness and encouraging participation at work and at home
    • Encouraging the confirmation of sustainable hotels and alternative means of transport rather than planes, to reduce the carbon footprint.
    • Generating relationships with NGOs, assuming our social responsibility.
    • Communicating to our passenger’s ways to reduce the impact on the environment and how to collaborate with local communities during their visits to the different destinations.
    • Working with our suppliers to spread our message of environmental and sociocultural conservation and encouraging them to adopt environmental policies that are similar to ours.
    • This policy will be communicated to all interested parts and remain available to any client who wants to acknowledge it.

Global Code of Ethics for Tourism

As a fundamental frame of reference for responsible and sustainable tourism, the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (GCET) is a comprehensive set of principles designed to guide key-players in tourism development. Addressed to governments, the travel industry, communities and tourists alike, it aims to help maximise the sector’s benefits while minimising its potentially negative impact on the environment, cultural heritage and societies across the globe.

Adopted in 1999 by the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization, its acknowledgement by the United Nations two years later expressly encouraged UNWTO to promote the effective follow-up of its provisions. Although not legally binding, the Code features a voluntary implementation mechanism through its recognition of the role of the World Committee on Tourism Ethics (WCTE), to which stakeholders may refer matters concerning the application and interpretation of the document.

The Code’s 10 principles amply cover the economic, social, cultural and environmental components of travel and tourism:

    • Article 1: Tourism's contribution to mutual understanding and respect between peoples and societies.
    • Article 2: Tourism as a vehicle for individual and collective fulfilment.
    • Article 3: Tourism, a factor of sustainable development.
    • Article 4: Tourism, a user of the cultural heritage of mankind and contributor to its enhancement.
    • Article 5: Tourism, a beneficial activity for host countries and communities.
    • Article 6: Obligations of stakeholders in tourism development.
    • Article 7: Right to tourism.
    • Article 8: Liberty of tourist movements.
    • Article 9: Rights of the workers and entrepreneurs in the tourism industry.
    • Article 10: Implementation of the principles of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism.
