What is the HI Sustainability Fund
The Hostelling International Sustainability Fund (HISF) was initiated in 2013 as a step to facilitate the implementation of the HI Sustainability Charter (2010).
HISF encourages participation of HI hostels across the network in contributing to reducing carbon emissions and advancing sustainable developments and initiatives. Its goal, to promote a sustainable mindset across HI’s key stakeholders; our member associations, global community of travellers and partners, while progressing towards achieving carbon neutrality across our diverse network.
Through donations, HISF provides our guests with the opportunity to offset their overnights and reduce the carbon footprint of their stay.
Over 600 tonnes of Carbon are offset annually through projects awarded by the fund.
As the HISF is sustained by the generosity of conscientious travellers that have donated to the fund through our booking platform, we believe that you should have the right to decide which projects will be granted the HI Sustainability Fund for 2020.
Over £161,000 has been raised to date, supporting 19 projects across the HI network
The total amount generated by the fund this year is £12,760 GBP this will be divided equally amongst the top three projects
