Our Sustainable Supplier Pledge

Follow The Camino is a leading travel operator promoting and facilitating journeys along the Camino de Santiago, Spain’s iconic pilgrimage route, and our goal is to be the most eco-friendly Camino de Santiago travel company in the world. We want to keep providing walking holidays for generations to come. To do that, we have to shift how the tourism industry works and work side by side with key stakeholders embracing the concept of sustainable travel.

Follow the Camino is continually assessing how we work to reduce our impact on the planet and be a more eco-friendly business. We work with locally-owned accommodation suppliers and transport services, and encourage our clients to eat at independent restaurants. We educate and empower communities along the Camino to practice sustainability in their day-to-day lives, ensuring our activities are economically viable, environmentally sustainable, and socially acceptable.

Our Pledge

Follow The Camino is deeply committed to running all activities with environmental sustainability in mind, especially the goals of the Paris Agreement, which includes a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030.

Starting in 2025, Follow The Camino will take the following steps when choosing suppliers to help us meet—or exceed—these goals. Suppliers that align with our vision will not only contribute to a more prosperous future, but will also gain recognition and trust in an increasingly eco-conscious marketplace by demonstrating their commitment to responsible practices.

We look forward to solidifying our more sustainable partnerships in the journey towards a more sustainable future. For full transparency, these are part of our criteria for selecting our suppliers:

Accommodation suppliers should have:
2025 2028 2030
A sustainability action plan in line with the Paris Agreement 15% 30% 60%
