Sustainability

Meaningful local impact

Our vision

A world where everyone has opportunity to realise the benefits of working remotely overseas, sustainably.

Working for good

When we envisioned GoRemote we were awash with grand ideas around giving back to the communities we operate in. There was talk of partnerships with local NGOs, reducing plastic waste, recycling, upcycling, off-setting carbon footprints, saving turtles. The list was long.

Then it hit us, rather bluntly – we were thinking about this the wrong way.

Yes, there’s some great stuff we can seek to achieve supporting local initiatives. In Cabo Verde for example simply ensuring apartment owners install water filters will significantly reduce single use plastic on the islands. Providing GoRemoters with welcome packs made from locally sourced, upcycled materials will empower them to make positive choices during their posting. It all adds-up.

“But we quickly realised a powerful agent for change is the GoRemote proposition itself. Specifically, making sure that we bring the right people, to the right destinations, to do the right thing.”

We passionately believe by working with like-minded people who share the same desire to have positive impact in the communities where they live and work, that we can co-create an eco-system which thrives – environmentally, economically, socially.

Apply your expertise for good

From environmental action to large scale behaviour change we provide tailored volunteering opportunities which match your motivations and the needs of the community. Bye-bye tokenistic CSR initiatives, hello curated projects designed by locals for locals.

GoEducation

From teaching English through to getting young people hands on with the latest technologies our education projects improve access and outcomes.

GoEnvironment

Many of our destinations face extreme challenges with infrastructure. We focus both on upstream and downstream reduce, reuse and recycle interventions.

GoKnowledge

Transfer of skills to tackle specific challenges through better application of technology and project management has potential for profound and lasting impact.
