Certified B Corporation
We're proud to be a Certified B Corporation.
B Corporations are a new kind of company which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental issues. There are currently over 2000 Certified B Corporations from more than 130 industries in over 50 countries with ONE unifying goal - to redefine success in business.
B Corps are important because they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
It’s like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee.
The performance standards are comprehensive and transparent. They measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community and the environment) and unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders.
Why we became a B Corp
We became a B Corp as we felt the movement reflected our values and provided a strong framework from which to expand on our ideas on how the entire travel industry can make a positive difference to the world.
The change we seek
Reho Travel is committed to making a difference to the world that our clients travel to, whether this is on business, on holiday or on a study tour.
Currently 10% of our profits are invested in a community bank in Mpamba, Malawi which we established with the primary vision of offering small affordable loans to the languishing communities that would transform their living standards, thus revamping their lost hope of bettering their lives. This is the first stage in what we hope are similar projects in many parts of the world.
We are also committed to influencing the entire travel industry in considering the entire supply chain. We would like to see an industry where customers are choosing an airline for its low fuel consumption, a hotel in the developing world for its labor practices, a tour company that involves the local community and books them all with a travel agency that has the awareness and experience to guide them toward suppliers that have a positive impact on the world.
