Sustainable Development Goals: our commitment
Fairbnb.coop contribution to sustainability
At Fairbnb.coop, we think that a community based, regenerative tourism model can be a consistent solution to many of the 17 SDGs set by the UN in the 2030 Agenda. This is the positive impact we could have for each of them by putting communities at the heart of every travel experience. We know that it is still a long journey but we are trying our best!
SDGs GOAL N. 2: ZERO HUNGER
Fairbnb.coop’s sustainable tourism model aims to give back to local communities the wealth they produce, by supporting local associations who take care of the most vulnerable people. In Porto and Genoa you can support projects that aim to eliminate food waste by redistributing what can no longer be sold to poor families.
SDGs GOAL N.5: GENDER EQUALITY
Among the collaborators and the working members of our cooperative, all genders have the same opportunities and fair treatment. About half of our hosts are women and we give useful tips to female travellers. In Amsterdam, we empower immigrant women through their work in urban gardens.
SDGs GOAL N. 7: AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
In the Western Riviera of Liguria we support Co.Co.Farm, a community projects that aim to produce “carbon negative” renewable energy, both electricity and heat, starting from the recovery of waste biomass from rivers and beaches.
SDGs GOAL N.11: SUSTAINABLE CITIES
Our potential impact has been recognized also by the jury of the Sustainable Tourism Awards 2020, in which we participated for the “Urban accommodations” category. Our main goals are to build resilient cities and communities, create affordable housing and basic services in the cities, and improve participation and inclusion.
