Make a Difference

Epic is committed to making a positive difference in the destinations in which we work through philanthropy. We recognise that responsible behaviour is our calling card – creating opportunities to foster sustainable development in the communities and countries where we operate.

We strive to earn the trust of all we interact with, our employees, service providers and the communities where we live and work, the countries that host us, or any other persons or parties with whom we engage in the sustainable development of tourism.

Social Responsibility is the commitment to contribute to sustainable development – working with employees, their families, the local community and society at large to improve the quality of life, in ways that are both good for business and good for development.

Epic’s Approach to Social Responsibility

These core pillars guide Epic Private Journeys in its business conduct around the world.

Ethics – Epic conducts business with ethical standards in accordance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. We strive to act as a responsible corporate citizen and lend our expertise to help engage in constructive public dialogue and informed debate on issues of importance to the Company, the tourism industry and the communities in which we operate.

Employees – Epic is committed to developing the full potential of our employees. We respect and value each of our employees and observe the fundamental tenets of human rights, safety and non-discrimination in the workplace.

Community – Epic fully considers the social, cultural, environmental, and economic impacts of our operations. We endeavour to bring long-term benefits to communities and we give priority to building partnerships that contribute to enhancing local skills. We also commit to providing financial support to organisations through charitable endeavours where possible. The employment of local community members is a priority.

Environment, Health and Safety – Epic has a responsibility to protect the environment. We encourage wise environmental stewardship to ensure that the environment is protected for future generations, and that the sustainability of nearby communities is safeguarded.

Epic is committed to giving back…and making a difference in the world.
