Xanterra has weathered many storms during my 28 years at the helm, but none quite like the global Covid-19 pandemic. The past two years have brought many challenges that would have been difficult to imagine several years ago. Although we all experienced loss, I’m proud of the way that we were able to rally as an organization, live our values, and weather this storm.As we continue working to ensure the safety of our guests and employees, we are now finally able to get back to many of the important tasks we deferred, such as writing this Sustainability Report. While our commitment to balancing economic viability with environmental stewardship never wavered, we weren’t able to offer this update on our sustainability program until now. As you will see throughout this Report, we have remained hard at work on innovative ways to protect the Beautiful Places on Earth® where we are fortunate to operate.We are responding by revising our 2025 Vision Goals to refocus on the areas of greatest impact and opportunity. We are publicly acknowledging the necessity of setting and achieving a goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. And although the global pandemic presented us with many new challenges, we are maintaining emission reduction goal to expedite the transition to that carbon-neutral future. We have also revised some of our other 2025 goals in response to the rapidly changing world around us and new understandings of the best available ways to minimize our impacts on the environment. Despite the many changes the world and our industry have faced in the past few years, some things remain constant. As I stated in our first Sustainability Report in 2003, we still believe that increasing the sustainability of natural systems is not just good business – it’s the right thing to do. We also remain committed to avoiding “greenwashing” by recognizing not only our successes, but also where we have fallen short, and to pursue third-party verification of many of our achievements and claims. This Report gives us an opportunity to recognize our dedicated employees for the hard-won successes documented in the following stories. We hope that these stories will inspire all our employees, guests, partners, and the next generation of leaders to build on their successes. However, this Report is also an opportunity to provide transparency into the long way that we still have to go. Xanterra will continue to live our mission statement by providing legendary hospitality, with a softer footprint.
