The Steppes Fund for Change

The driving force behind our approach to sustainability. It’s our guarantee to you that we’re protecting this beautiful planet wherever and whenever possible.

Our commitment to nurturing people, cultures and places doesn’t rest. In fact, it follows us to every corner of the globe and back.

The Steppes Fund for Change is a collection of initiatives to promote sustainable travel, and a call-to-arms to the industry to take action. When you, our clients, take the leap to discover the extraordinary, you can be sure that you are doing it in a way which puts the planet first.

Every trip contributes to change

We pledge £25 per person per booking and add it to a fund that supports 20 women’s empowerment, girls’ education and wildlife conservation programmes across the world. While back home, a further £25 goes towards our fledgeling scheme to plant trees in Scunthorpe and to sponsor a nuclear fusion researcher at the University of Oxford.

Rooting for long-term solutions

Our commitment to offsetting 100% of the carbon emissions from our clients’ flights is something that will never change. However, starting November 2019, Steppes Travel and the Woodland Trust will push those efforts by taking on the ambitious task of planting a 40-acre community wood near Scunthorpe – an area with some of the most polluted air in Britain.

Combining brainpower and belief

Nuclear fusion is seen by many as the panacea for a safe energy solution. Steppes Travel is supporting the work of Nicolas Cristen, a doctorate student with the Plasma Physics Group at the University of Oxford, and his work into harnessing this game-changing way of producing energy.
