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 ASEV Laos’ commitment towards social and environmental sustainability.
ASEV 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:
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.
ASEV Travel believes in reducing plastic waste across the regions that we work. The amount of single use plastic consumption, is one of the biggest environmental dilemmas in Asia Pacific today, due to waste disposal limitations.
Therefore a plastic reduction program was initiated leading ASEV Travel to join the “Refill Not Landfill” project. Refill not Landfill is a global campaign to reduce single-use plastic drinking bottles and other single-use plastic waste. Committed to reduce our environmental footprint ASEV Travel now provides travelers with reusable and refillable bottles and a network of refill stations.
After a trial period where we tested the challenges of this project in each destination we operate in, we are now launching this service for each departure by January 2020 in Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. Vietnam and Thailand have a less extensive network as of today and therefore further solutions are yet to be found to be fully operationnal by 2021.
We are the key to change! By joining this sustainable practise, as our partner, you may directly contribute to the protection of the environment and provide further guidance and awareness to your travellers.
