To coincide with the celebration of its 20th anniversary, ASIA DMC Vietnam has been awarded Partner status with Travelife, the leading training, management and certification initiative for tourism companies. This demonstrates the company’s on-going commitment to environmental and social sustainability across its business.

Several forward-thinking initiatives have been undertaken by ASIA DMC Vietnam to meet Travelife’s high standards, including reducing the company’s energy use, only using sustainable suppliers, eliminating the use of plastic bottles, and implementing child and animal welfare policies. It also plans to roll out a carbon offsetting project for its leisure guests by the end of the year.

“Reaching Partner status with Travelife is a wonderful achievement for our entire company and reflects the hard work of every ASIA DMC member,” said Linh Le, Group Managing Director of ASIA DMC. “Moving forward, we look forward to continuing working with Travelife to add further value to our trade partners and clients by providing responsible, sustainable and educated travel experiences across the entire region.”

“By reaching Travelife Partner level, ASIA DMC Vietnam has demonstrated a clear commitment to sustainability. Through Travelife’s and online platform and training programs, ASIA DMC will be provided with the best possible support as it advances its CSR efforts,” commented Naut Kusters, CEO of Travelife.

ASIA DMC’s sustainability program is underscored by the work of the HG Foundation, the company’s CSR arm, which works to provide environmental and social benefits to communities across Southeast Asia. Earlier this year, ASIA DMC and the HG Foundation launched the “Roots and Fruits” campaign – a region-wide tree-planting initiative that spanned seven destinations in three countries.

ASIA DMC Vietnam joins ASIA DMC Myanmar as a certified Travelife Partner. The company will now take its sustainability efforts to the next level by working towards achieving Travelife Partner status at group level, and spreading the benefits of its CSR programs to communities all across Southeast Asia.
