TRAVELIFE PARTNER SUSTAINABILITY AWARD FOR ASIA MY WAY LAOS
Travelife, which has been established with the support of the European Commission, is the leading international sustainability certification for the travel sector. It covers all aspects of the tourism supply chain from environmental issues, biodiversity and human rights to labour relations
The Travelife Partner award is a recognition of Asia My Way Laos’ commitment towards social and environmental sustainability.
Asia My Way Laos complies, based on a verified self-assessment to more than 100 criteria related to sustainability management, office operations, working with suppliers and customer communication. Travelife follows a three-stage approach:
- (1) Travelife Engaged (become an official member),
- (2) Travelife Partner (award),
- (3) Travelife Certified (certification).
We are working towards further improvements aiming to eventually reach the third party audited Travelife Certified stage and span this accreditation to all our destinations across South East Asia.
WE BUILD: Our itineraries are made in a way as to offer sustainable tourism options and have been fully researched and developed as we believe will provide authentic, rewarding holidays that give a real appreciation of local cultures and environements for our guests.
WE IMPOSE: strict quality control of all travel related services.
WE ENCOURAGE: the participation of the local population in all our fields of activity, thus our travellers never feel like spectators.
WE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT: the interests, the rights and the desire for autonomy of the local population.
WE RESPECT: their laws, customs, traditions and cultural features.
WE CHOOSE: the best business conditions for eachpartner. Excessively negotiating for always lower prices leads to the exploitation of populations and a loss of quality control.
WE COLLABORATE: with various service providers and the local population in a spirit of close friendship & partnership.
WE ALLOW MORE TIME: to observe, explore and encounter local culture & people. During a trip we allocate more time in general to enrich your travel experience with serendipity even further.
WE EMPOWER SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: with itineraries that aim to get off the beaten tracks, away from the main crowds, to give a more privileged - and usually far more rewarding - experience.
WE CONTRIBUTE: to awaken the conscience of all parties involved, in organizing collectively a type of tourism that is both environmentally friendly as well as socio-culturally responsible.
