The Foundation is busy developing a comprehensive sustainability framework for our family of brands. This extends past our social and environmental responsibility as it also seeks to address our structures, processes and ways we are operating our business.
In October 2016 we launched a GREENoffice program in Hanoi that has been so successful we intend to roll it out to the remainder of our of ASIA DMC business by the end of the first quarter. In December 2016, we published our Statements of Intent on; Environmental Policy, Animal Welfare and Child Exploitation. This is part of the Foundation and HG-Holdings commitment to have policies in place to safeguard our brands and provide guidance on shared objectives.
During 2017 we will also be exploring the possibility to complete a Sustainability Certification to formalize recognition of the various efforts we are undertaking.
In the interim the Foundation can act as a consultant on how to build your own program that conforms to the Global Sustainable Tourism Councils Criteria, on which numerous certification bodies base their certifications.
