About TerraVerde Sustainability
TerraVerde was born during 2020, the most infamous year for tourism! As friends and colleagues since 1985, Chris and Patrick share common values. Foremost of these is the passionate commitment to tourism’s recovery in a robust and sustainable fashion, embracing environmental principles. Momentum for sustainability is building powerfully and impacts all areas of business and our lives in general. At the same time, we are keenly aware how much the sector is hurting, meaning that solutions must be tailored to economic realities and the distinctively personal way that tourism operates.
We strongly recognise the values of trust and partnership that underpin our sector and the transformation caused by digitisation and consolidation over the last 30 years, giving us an intuitive understanding of which solutions can be successful. We appreciate you finding out more about us and sincerely hope we can assist you and your businesses on your journey towards a greener future.
