The 25th World Travel Awards Gala, held in Hong Kong on 3rd September, recognized ASIA DMC triumphant in six categories, including "Asia's Leading Management Company and also including five accolades as leading management company (DMC) in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar. The accolade marks the second-consecutive year that ASIA DMC winning these prestigious titles and being a major milestone for the company as ASIA DMC celebrates its 21 years of business.

To coincide with the celebrations, ASIA DMC shall officially launch its first Carbon offset product, which will add further value to partners and clients by making practical efforts to reduce the impacts of tourism in each destination. The volume of carbon that clients are creating, measuring aspects like room nights and travel, will be calculated and identify the neutralise cost. Each purchase of this carbon offset product will be attributed to local projects in our destinations to counteract the emissions that cannot be avoided causing during the trips.

"The idea for this product is to showcase the sustainable way that we provide travel - not only as a measure to decrease our carbon emissions but to meet the growing demand from travellers to travel in a responsible way" commented Andre van der Marck, Managing Director of ASIA DMC Thailand. Once it is launched, this product will also create funding for other projects that responsibly promote environmental as well as economic development and ASIA DMC will be the first company of its kind to offer this kind of product. "Travel is not necessary to cost the Earth; we just need to think of innovative ways to create memorable experiences." Andre added.

"In fact, the new carbon offset product is not the first initiative that ASIA DMC has established to combine memorable travel with a sustainable attitude. Several initiatives have been undertaken by the work of the HG Foundation, our CSR arm, which provides environmental and social benefits to communities across Southeast Asia." Gerben Bloemendaal, Managing Director of ASIA DMC Myanmar added. For example, in line with the "Roots and Fruits" campaign, we've actually got 7 reforestation sites in Siem Reap, Luang Prabang, Hanoi, Nhatrang,... where we can take clients and they get the option to plant a fruit tree to neutralise their carbon footprints. This creates a concrete experience that promotes sustainable travel and tourism while also creating micro-economies in destinations.

This responsible development oriented carbon offset product is a further movement to demonstrate the company's on-going commitment to environmental and social sustainability across its business.
