The AAI is run by outdoor people, for outdoor people. The outdoor environment is a precious resource which we share with other wild creatures. Having a passive role in caring for the outdoors is no longer enough. We include environmental aspects to all awards and encourage AAI people to have a positive environmental impact with every visit.
