The TreadRight Foundation supports projects that help the environment, protect and conserve ecosystems and benefit communities. To date, TreadRight has provided more than US$2 million to sustainable tourism projects around the world.

Organisations that have benefited from contributions include Conservation International, the WWF, Tourism Cares, The Travel Foundation, the World Travel and Tourism Council and numerous others on a host of projects in support of responsible tourism development and environmental and heritage conservation.
