We have clearly written policies and clear code of conduct that all our employees and local business partners and suppliers has to follow accordingly to our organization’s sustainable goals.
Sustainability is becoming a critical issue on this world as the impacts of global warming and uncontrollable and harmful plastic and chemical wastes everywhere. “We love the world we are living in and our responsibility is there to save the world in return.”
Not just for the environment, we are equally responsible for our people, community and their cultures along the supply chain. It is very important to consider the sustainable concept while working on the development as most of our country’s population has still limited access to the education and so we believe through tourism is the best and most practical mean to give them sustainable education while providing them job opportunities.
