The &Beyond core ethos of Care of the Land, Wildlife and People, which is woven into every aspect of our business practices, is perfectly mirrored in our association with brand partners Thule and Swarovski.
Thule and sustainability
Thule’s commitment to thinking sustainably is evident throughout their business. It influences their design philosophy, choice of materials, manufacturing processes, and even their choice of suppliers. By 2020, Thule’s goal is to source 100% of their electricity from certified renewable sources. Much of their community involvement focuses on children and adults with disabilities, supporting them in various ways to live the most active, health and independent lives possible.
&Beyond branded THULE luggage
Thule’s luggage is not only stylish, versatile, and durable, but it’s also wonderfully convenient. It’s a perfect match with the luggage regulations for those charter flights that are a regular feature of an African safari. The backpacks, which are fully customizable, are guaranteed to be the perfect fit.
Swarovski Optik and sustainability
Sustainable management, within a culture of respect, trust, support and tolerance, is core to the Swarovski Optik business model. In addition, the innovative Swarovski Optik product range celebrates nature, and is designed to inspire and encourage one and all to honour and conserve it. To quote from their sustainability report: “Our aim is to help people to love nature, and encourage them to treat it with care and respect.”
