Beyond Boundaries Myanmar understands that the tourism sector is needed to be involved in a wide range of social responsibility engagement programmes so as to invest back into the community and environment in which we operate. It is very important to help the tourism industry for the long-term benefit of local people, the environment, travellers along the supply chain of the industry. The entire premise of our business is to market and distribute more responsible holidays and experience holidays in communities, thereby creating more jobs opportunities and greater income for local people and increased benefits for environmental and socio cultural conservation, whilst at the same time minimising negative impacts on local environments, cultures and communities. We believe that through our social responsibility activities we can assist in improving people’s lives and improving their knowledge in sustainability of their environment.
Therefore, in order to be able to perform systematically on sustainability, we joined Travelife in July 2018 and The Travelife Partner award was received on October 15, 2019 by Beyond Boundaries. The award is a recognition for the long-term efforts and frontrunner position of Beyond Boundaries regarding sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.
Beyond Boundaries complies with more than 100 criteria, related to an operators’ office management, product range, international business partners and customer information. The Travelife standard is covering the ISO 26000 Corporate Social Responsibility themes, including environment, biodiversity, human rights and labour relations; and is formally recognised as in full compliance with the UN supported Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria.
Mr Naut Kusters, manager of Travelife for tour operators, “I am delighted to see that sustainability in the tour operators sector is obtaining momentum. The award of the front runner Beyond Boundaries will inspire other companies in Myanmar to follow the same path”.
Beyond Boundaries is the 27th company in Myanmar to have reached the Travelife Partner award.
We have learned a lot about the sustainable knowledge and practices during the whole process of joining Travelife and found them useful for our business, our suppliers and all partners in our supply chain. We are going to distribute such best sustainable practices within the industry in our country and beyond to make our world better and people happier.
