EXO Travel’s Thailand team are thrilled to have successfully been awarded the Travelife Certification which is the culmination of months of hard work and dedication.
The Travelife Certification recognises the efforts towards corporate, social, cultural and environmental responsibility. The accolade is in recognition for EXO Travel’s operations within Thailand and adds to previously achieved certifications for work in Vietnam and Cambodia.
The achievement was driven by the efforts of the EXO Foundation and the hard work of the Sustainability Coordinators in each of the respective destinations.
EXO Travel Thailand’s Sustainability Coordinator, Nia Klatte was thrilled with the news, “The Travelife certification is a wonderful achievement for us. It has been a very exciting process so far and it’s an excellent motivator for us to keep developing and improving in the future. We hope to set a positive example for others to follow on our journey to more sustainable tourism.”
Travelife is the leading international sustainability certification across the industry. Achieving certification requires compliance with a total of 247 criteria, among which 161 are compulsory measures, covering the entire company’s office management, supply chain, product range and customer information including environmental efforts, biodiversity, human rights and labour relations. It’s also in full compliance with the UN supported Global Sustainable Tourism Council criteria.
Worldwide, 20 national travel associations are promoting the scheme to their members, 90 companies have started the certification process and 39 companies have achieved certification, among which there are only four in Southeast Asia.
For EXO, this is a continuation of our commitment to becoming a truly sustainable company, and the focus now turns to the next destination for Travelife certification.
