Anantara Hotels sign the UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge

Wednesday, Jun 08, 2022 0

Anantara Hotels & Resorts has signed up to the UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge.

Anantara added its full portfolio of over 45 hotels to the pledge.

The UNESCO Pledge in partnership with Expedia is a global travel ecosystem which supports sustainable tourism.

The pledge now has over 4,200 properties committed to transparent and achievable climate action.

John Roberts, Group Director of Sustainability and Conservation for Anantara said: “At every Anantara property sustainable tourism drives our choices, and over the years we have compiled a blueprint of best practices.”

Anantara teams and guests contribute to social and environmental projects supporting local communities.

Anantara’s charitable foundation, the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF), works with local communities to protect wild elephants.

In the Maldives, the Anantara team has been working alongside marine biologists from Coral Reef CPR since 2015 to develop ways to protect the corals from the effects of climate change.

Anantara’s signature Dollars For Deeds programme enables hotels to match guests’ donations dollar for dollar to raise funds for a range of causes.

This fund-raising mechanism supports the Mai Khao Turtle Foundation in Phuket and the Princess Sirindhorn Craniofacial Centre at Chulalongkorn Hospital in Bangkok.

Anantara has been certified by Green Growth 2050, based on a set of Global Sustainable Tourism Council-recognised hotel-industry standards, with 36 Anantara properties awarded to date.
