We are proud to be a B Corp!
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

We have a brand dedicated to help other companies becoming better: Impacteam!
Impacteam is a brand from the same company. But instead of connecting NGOs with tourists like ImpacTrip does, Impacteam connects NGOs with companies according to their own Corporate Social Responsibility strategy.

Companies reach Impacteam for support in: CSR consultancy or projects; volunteer or teambuilding activities with purpose; events with positive social and environmental impact.
