GAPTrex recognizes the importance of becoming a more sustainable player in the travel industry, and encouraging our operations in a more responsible direction.
There is a desperate and growing need for sustainable operating practices in all industries; however, the travel industry has unquestionably the greatest impact on the physical and cultural environments it uses in its day to day operations.
