We are an impact enterprise

  • Impact businesses are ventures that have the explicit mission of generating a positive social and environmental impact while generating a sustainable financial result.

Connection

Foster travellers' connection with nature and with people from different social and cultural backgrounds to promote respect and world peace.

Economic benefits

The community members are the protagonists of the experiences and each one involved in the activities (such as the trail guide and the host) is paid for the service provided. To be considered fair, the compensation is set by the residents themselves.

 A piece of the amount paid by the traveller is transferred to the community fund: a reserve accessed in case of need, such as in a power generator maintenance or in a medical emergency. Another part is invested in a social and environmental investment fund managed by Braziliando, which aims to benefit the community and the biodiversity.

We also encourage travellers to value local produce by purchasing typical handcrafts and food traded by the community. The hosts themselves contribute to the local economy as well, buying travel supplies directly from the community or neighborhood residents.

In order to mitigate environmental impacts, trips are made in small groups and travellers must follow the code of conduct co-created with community members. 

We ask, for example, to take back non-organic waste for proper disposal, to use biodegradable hygiene products and not to collect anything from nature.

In addition, none of our activities involve interaction with wild animals, following the commitment letter that we signed with World Animal Protection Organization.

Satisfaction is our motivation

Braziliando manages the impact and value created for customers and the community through applied research at the end of each experience. 

The form sent to travellers intends to measure their satisfaction with each aspect of the trip and the form sent to community members involved seeks to verify their perceptions of travellers and the experience itself. 

Thus, we identify opportunities for improvement and draw up an action plan with the community.

Sustainable Development Goals

We aim to contribute with UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), designed to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure that people achieve peace and prosperity.

Towards B Corporation Certification

  • We support the B Economy, a global movement of business leaders that seeks to redefine business success so that one day all companies can compete not just to be the best of the world but the best for the world.

We took the B Impact Assessment to check our socio-environmental impactand scored over the 80 points needed to become a B Corporation. Now we need to follow the validation process and certification to continue our journey towards sustainability.

We are human, we are not perfect!
