- the preservation, conservation and the protection of the environment and the prudent use of natural resources;
- the reduction of the impact of our carbon footprint as a result of all our activities related to tourism;
- the improvement of the conditions of life in socially and economically disadvantage communities due to tourism;
- the promotion of sustainable means of achieving economic growth and regeneration.

The Travel Foundation is an independent charity working with the travel industry towards a sustainable future. It enables travel companies to integrate sustainable tourism into their business - to protect the environment and create opportunities for local people in tourism destinations. It sets up projects in tourism destinations that find, test and demonstrate new ways for travel organisations to make a difference.
The Cyprus Breakfast concept falls within its efforts to enhance the quality of the tourist experience in Cyprus by capitalizing on its authentic food and indirectly supporting procurement practices that are both beneficial for the small local producer and environmentally friendlier than purchases from distant sources.
