Easia Travel's Responsible & Sustainable Statements

Humanity is a value we pride ourselves on here at Easia Travel, and we bring this humanistic philosophy to life through our action, from protecting elephants and cultural heritage to simply reducing the amount of plastic we use in our day-to-day lives. We place sustainability at the core of our actions – not as a trend, not as a sales tool, but rather as an utmost necessity.

We at Easia Travel have to stay on the cutting edge of sustainability, and we do so in large part with the help of our Travelife and ChildSafe partners, as well as having sustainability representatives, like our Green Teams, stationed in all our destinations. We keep our fingers on the pulse of movements large and small, from our growing international effort to replace disposable plastic with refillable bottles – thanks to help from the Refill Not Landfill initiative – to keeping our Easians educated on sustainability issues with dedicated training and media courses with ChildSafe training.

Carbon Offset Scheme

Carbon offsetting is an internationally recognized way to take responsibility for unavoidable carbon emissions. In a world where climate change is increasingly on the agenda and global emissions continue to grow, your customers and staff are looking to our business to act responsibly. In simple terms, offsetting one tonne of carbon means there will be one less tonne of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than there would otherwise have been. It is the fastest way to achieve emissions reductions and the only way to achieve carbon neutrality. Choosing to offset scheme, Easia Travel will support best practice projects that deliver value for the environment and local communities.

Elephant Welfare Initiative

Captive elephants, from the famous Patara Elephant Farm in Chiang Mai, Thailand to smaller camps in Vietnam’s national parks, present an ethical concern in the tourism industry, one that in partnership with PATA, we aim to tackle by implementing and promoting better treatment practices for these gentle giants. While many travelers dream of experiences like riding elephants through the jungle, we aim to reframe how humans and elephants interact, giving travelers an opportunity to ‘get to know’ elephants by feeding and bathing them, rather than confining them to a life of servitude – a life they may have narrowly escaped already

ChildSafe

In 2018, we at Easia Travel joined and became a certified member of the ChildSafe Movement. The ChildSafe Movement is a global push to protect children from all forms of abuse. The Movement both implements and advocates for child protection policies and practices by giving everyone in an organization the opportunity to take action. We proudly ensure that our services are not only child-friendly and protective, but also that our staff receives in-depth training on how to safely and ethically interact with children, such as avoiding potentially harmful unsolicited orphanage or school visits and donations.

Refill Not Landfill

Reducing our use and dependence on plastic is one of the defining challenges of our time, and we are 100% committed to helping solve this problem. While an increase in Southeast Asian tourism definitely provides a positive impact on the livelihoods of many, the growing number of visitors also places a considerably heavy toll on the environment, and one of the most visible side effects of tourism is the exponential increase of disposable plastic waste visitors leave behind during their stay.
