Our Sustainability Commitment

Permaculture Journeys is entirely committed to sustainability. In fact, it is the very purpose of this business; and so we have taken multiple steps to integrate sustainability in everything we do, from our business vision and mission, to our operations. 

Sustainability Policy

We have developed a Sustainability Policy which outlines the sustainability vision for our business.

You can access it by clicking this link: https://permaculturejourneys.com.au/sustainability-policy

And we assure conformance with this policy through the use of our Sustainability Management System (SMS).

Sustainability Management System

We developed our Sustainability Management System (SMS) in accordance with the ISO 14001 framework for Environmental Management and with the SMS course of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP). 

You can access an overview of our SMS through the following link: https://permaculturejourneys.com.au/sustainability-management-system

Partnerships & Next Steps

Last but not least, we have set an objective to offset the carbon footprint induced from our digital operations, as well as to establish relevant partnerships to accelerate a global transition towards a sustainable future. We will endeavour to implement some of these steps mid or longer-term as is relevant to our business structure and performance.
