For Kuoni, it’s about caring for the world we live in and respecting the people, places and animals we may encounter during our travels. All of the hotels we offer have signed up to our Responsible Promise; and many go the extra eco-mile, including some of the best hotels in the world.
Kuoni wants to keep the world beautiful for future generations to enjoy. As part of its commitment to reduce plastic waste the company has created its own branded drinking bottle in collaboration with Water-to-Go which more than 250 Kuoni staff have tried and tested on their own travels over the past year. Each bottle will filter 200 litres and so replace 400 single use 50 cls bottles. Water-to-Go is a filtration system that eliminates over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants including viruses, bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals from any non-salt water source.
Kuoni has chosen Water-to-Go as its partner as the filter has been independently tested against internationally recognised standards by industry specialists in the USA, UK, China and India. All have confirmed that the filters in the Water-to-Go bottles eliminate up to 99.9999% of harmful contaminants in water so is ideal for travelling.

Here are a few easy, simple tips to help become a responsible traveller.
Kuoni has been at the forefront of conservation and responsible travel for many years. We feel passionately that travel is a force for good – but we realise that there are costs and compromises involved. We believe that to travel responsibly is to live responsibly: lots of small actions add up to decisive change. The choices we make all have a role to play in climate change, from the food we eat and how we heat our homes, to the transport we take on holiday. Our actions, however small, can have a profound impact when combined with thousands of others. To calculate your total carbon footprint, visit WWF’s footprint calculator. At Kuoni, our team believes that whilst carbon offsetting may not be a long-term solution, we give clients the opportunity to offset flights through Gold Standard and want to be part of the conversation and action to keep our planet beautiful for future generations to enjoy.
We work with our hotel and ground agent suppliers closely, encouraging them to sign up to the Kuoni Code of Conduct. We trust in these hotels and agencies to do their utmost to respect and achieve the standards we set out. We have a responsibility towards society to be a good corporate citizen, from a sustainable supply chain to ethical human rights.
Some of the points we highlight in our Kuoni Code of Conduct are:
