For years, Booking.com has been testing different ways to support the travel ecosystem. Through our volunteer programme, employees have given thousands of work hours to sustainability and community impact projects all over the world. While through our Booking Booster accelerator programme, we have supported 45 different sustainable travel startups and organisations, helping them grow their impact by providing grants and ongoing mentoring.
In 2019, we stepped up our industry collaboration by co-founded Travalyst, alongside the Duke of Sussex. In this coalition, we are joined by some of the biggest names in travel – TripAdvisor, Trip.com, Skyscanner and Visa – all with the common goal of developing industry-wide solutions to make sustainable travel easier for everyone and protect the destinations we love to explore. We are also an official partner of World Animal Protection, making us part of an alliance of global travel leaders committed to ending cruelty in wildlife entertainment.
