At Viridian, sustainability means being concerned and socially responsible global citizens who are mindful stewards of our planet’s resources, ambassadors of renewable energy and caring friends to the people, creatures and ecosystems of other nations. We approach our global efforts with a holistic plan that considers the current realities of an area and the long-term viability of any solution.
Citizens of the world, in partnership with the planet
The mainstay of our global efforts is our 7 Continents in 7 Years pledge—our commitment to complete a sustainability project on a different continent each year. Our top-performing Independent Associates and select members of our corporate staff undertake these projects each year, gaining invaluable experience and respect for the cultures we serve. Each project has a sustaining and positive impact on the environment and economy of the community we visit. Click here for our video playlist.

The Amazon represents over half of the planets remaining rainforests. Back in 2011, Viridian decided this hotspot for biodiversity was the natural place for us to begin our 7 Continents in 7 Years journey. Since that first trip, we’ve established our Amazon Preservation Project, a commitment to plant a total of 5,000 trees in deforested regions of the Amazon. In January 2016, a dedicated group of voluntourists traveled to Peru and helped us reach our goal of planting 5,000 trees in the Amazon.
