    TIME revealed the third-annual TIME100 Most Influential Companies list, highlighting companies making an extraordinary impact around the world.

    Intrepid Travel has been included for its work towards advancing a more sustainable travel industry.

    Intrepid is the only tour operator and experience provider on this year’s list and has been recognised alongside other notable innovators and leaders in business including Disney, Apple and Patagonia.

    “People want to travel more responsibly—both environmentally and socially—and business is booming for the certified B Corp, which saw record-breaking booking days after launching a flight-free program (and more than 100 Indigenous-led tours) last year,” according to TIME.

    “The carbon-neutral company was the first global tour operator to establish verified, science-based carbon-reduction targets.”

    James Thornton, CEO of Intrepid Travel, added: “This honour is a testament to the power of travel; not only does exploring the world provide thought-provoking, incredible, fun experiences – it also has the power to transform our world and create more resilient communities.

    “This proves that our style of locally led, small-group adventures is no longer a ‘niche’. Our way of traveling is actually helping to shape the future of travel. As an industry, we can support more responsible travel habits and make a substantial difference by using our collective power, influence and voice to help make the world a better place.”

    To assemble the list, TIME solicited nominations from its global network of contributors and correspondents as well as from outside experts. Then TIME editors evaluated each on key factors, including impact, innovation, ambition, and success. The result is a diverse group of 100 businesses helping chart an essential path forward.
