Aurora Expeditions Receives B Corp Certification
Aurora Expeditions, a renowned leader in polar exploration, has achieved another milestone in its commitment to sustainability by attaining Certified B Corporation™ status.
This marks a decisive step in its mission to set the standard for sustainable expedition travel worldwide.
B Corps are businesses recognised for their exceptional performance in social and environmental responsibility, transparency, and accountability. By earning this certification, Aurora Expeditions has made a formal commitment to aligning its purpose with profit, ensuring its operations benefit both society and the environment.
The certification reflects Aurora's efforts to integrate sustainable practices throughout its operations. The company underwent rigorous evaluation across key areas, including governance, employee welfare, community engagement, environmental stewardship, and customer satisfaction.
This evaluation includes initiatives such as achieving 100% Climate Neutral status, implementing emissions reduction strategies, promoting conservation and climate change education, and supporting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
Michael Heath, CEO of Aurora Expeditions, highlighted the company's role in inspiring, educating, and advocating for the preservation of remote wilderness areas.
He said that sustainability extends beyond environmental concerns, encompassing aspects like policy and governance, which the company has formalised to meet higher standards of accountability.
Attaining B Corp status positions Aurora Expeditions among leaders in the global movement for positive change. The company aims to inspire others in the travel industry to embrace sustainable practices and contribute to a more responsible future.
B Corp Certification complements Aurora's ongoing sustainability initiatives, which aim to minimise negative impacts on the environment and communities while fostering a more sustainable world for future generations. This achievement follows the release of the company's inaugural Impact Report in mid-2023.
