Award-winning destination management company, ASIA DMC, will further demonstrate its environmental credentials next month when Group Managing Director, Linh Le, debates the critical issue of sustainable tourism in an expert panel discussion at WTM London 2017.
This platform will allow Linh to share his extensive experience in sustainable tourism sector, debate how the industry is facing up to its environmental responsibilities, and reflect on the measures ASIA DMC is putting in place to ensure a sustainable future for the communities in which it operates.
"Sustainability and resource management are arguably the biggest challenges facing the global travel and tourism industry in the 21st Century," said Linh Le. "At ASIA DMC, we put environmental and social considerations at the core of our business, ensuring that everything we do has a positive impact.
"With its continued focus on responsible tourism, WTM London is playing a key role in driving the global debate and promoting thought leadership. By discussing these critical issues, exchanging ideas and sharing best practices, we can help combat the industry's growing environmental threats and set travel and tourism on course for a more sustainable future," he added.
ASIA DMC was recently awarded Partner status with Travelife, the leading UK-based training, management and certification initiative for tourism companies. This followed the launch of several social and environmental initiatives, including reducing the company's energy use, only using sustainable suppliers, eliminating the use of plastic bottles, and implementing child and animal welfare policies.
The company is also about to launch an "Animal Welfare Map", providing its partners and guests with an excellent insight into the ethics of animal attractions across Southeast Asia, while a carbon offsetting project for ASIA DMC's leisure guests will be rolled out by the end of the year.
