Climate Emergency

Climate Emergency Plan

In 2020, Khiri Travel became a proud signatory of the Tourism Declares Climate Emergency Initiative. Many regions of the world have declared a climate emergency, and the countries that Khiri Travel operates in are not immune.

While we believe tourism, conducted in a sustainable and responsible manner, has positive effects that contribute to the planet and people, we must also acknowledge the impact that tourism has on our climate. As such, Khiri Travel is committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals across the seven countries in which we are active: Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Khiri Reach, our nonprofit organization, works with local communities and organizations to implement initiatives addressing climate change; read here.

We accept current IPCC advice stating the need to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to keep the planet-warming within 1.5 degrees. Our Climate Emergency Plan helps us, monitor, evaluate, and improve our environmental impact.
