J.D. O’Hara, CEO

All of us at Internova Travel Group are rallied around a single mission: to empower our network of travel advisors with the most exceptional programs, products and support to deliver unparalleled experiences to the traveler. As our company has evolved over the years, we have also come to understand how our company’s operations and services can impact the economy, environment and greater community.

 

There is an opportunity for us to use our mission to guide us in making a positive impact through every dimension of our business. We can leverage our size, our scale and our network to create value for our advisors, our clients, our investors and the communities we serve.

 

With that in mind, we have organized our corporate social responsibility strategy around seven key areas: Governance & Compliance, Human Rights, Labor Practices, Fair Operating Practices, The Environment, Consumer Care, and Community Involvement.

Gabe Rizzi, President

As a company focused on, and sensitive to, our customers’ priorities, we are focused on not just being the leader in corporate travel management but ensuring that we uphold key principles of Corporate Social Responsibility. It’s not just about being good, but also doing good and equipping travelers with the right information to make informed buying decisions.

 

We have a big opportunity to affect how travel positively impacts our society and our communities, and we are committed to working with all stakeholders to maximize the benefits. Responsible global travel is a force for good and creates employment and wealth everywhere it occurs.

OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) FRAMEWORK

 

At Internova Travel Group, we have applied ISO 26000 as a framework to integrate social responsibility into our values and practices.

It is designed to work in all organizational and cultural contexts – in any country or region.
