Hanoi, Vietnam - Travelife Partner ASIA DMC actively takes part in bringing out the true colours of the emerging “sustainable travel” trend: environmental and social benefits to the community through responsible community-based and eco-adventures.
The idea of responsible tourism has increasingly been embraced by travel aficionados around the world. Sustainability is now a significant go-to spirit in modern workplace culture, especially when it comes to CSR (corporate social responsibility) campaigns. In the past 10 years, we have witnessed several CSR movements coming and going in the travel industry, and not until recently had such a significant trend surged on a worldwide scale. This suggests that businesses done properly can live well in harmony with the environment and local communities, and it was high time the travel industry took action to sustain its positive impacts on the planet.
Since the partnership with Travelife (an international certification scheme for sustainable travel), leading destination management company ASIA DMC has been growing its business as well as its commitment to a responsible and sustainable business model. The organization continues to work closely with its dedicated CSR arm, HG Foundation, to deliver refreshing community-oriented campaigns every year.
Alongside B2B partners, ASIA DMC is now taking the lead in Community Service Projects to support remote and disadvantaged communities in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. These programs are designed for travel enthusiasts of all ages who seek to immerse themselves in a genuine cultural environment while bringing tangible positive impacts on the daily lives of local communities. Some examples include tree planting, conservation of mangroves, building sanitary facilities or a library for local schools.
ASIA DMC excels at designing new or revamping old tours with high responsible performance, giving clients the flexibility and endless possibilities in organizing their programs. Any travel idea can be engineered and implemented in such a way that it will limit the use of motorized transportation, maximize benefits to the local communities, and create a positive experience for both visitors and destinations. From eco-trip in remote areas to cycling tours or urban adventures, any activity could be further improved by various carbon offset elements.
Committed to being responsible for the community through strict policies on environmental and social management, ASIA DMC remains focused on growing further as a market-leading business as well as a thought-leader in the ever-evolving era of sustainable tourism.
Discover the multitude of possibilities for sustainable travel with ASIA DMC at ITB Berlin 2020 from the 4th to the 8th of March. The team will be represented by Andre van der Marck (Managing Director Thailand) and Trung Tran (Indochina Business Development Manager) at the Vietnam Pavilion, hall 26C, stand 313.
