Globe and Mail Travel News: Vancouver Island to cut tourism emissions

Travel news: Vancouver Island to cut tourism emissions, statement luggage goes sustainable and the world’s first Mountain Air Sommelier

This month, 4VI was featured in the Globe and Mail’s travel news section as an innovator in the world of tourism emissions and decarbonization.

Having completed one of the largest tourism carbon audits in North America this year, we continue to strive towards a more balanced tourism ecosystem through carbon off-setting programs within our own operations and for the businesses in the Vancouver Island Region.

As we say, a great place to live is a great place to visit.

About 4VI
4VI (formerly Tourism Vancouver Island) is a non-profit social enterprise organization, created to ensure that travel is a force for good for Vancouver Island – forever. The ‘4’ in its name captures its four key social commitments — to the community, business, culture, and the environment. This focus extends to the work the organization does each day. Every opportunity for 4VI now and in the future will align with these social goals. The team’s mandate is to deliver innovative tourism advisory services, working directly with communities on Vancouver Island to both identify opportunities for enhanced tourism experiences and deliver on them. 4VI is the first destination management organization of its kind to not just commit to changing how tourism is managed, but to developing the corporate structure as a social enterprise that drives needed change.
