The company’s Group Director of Sustainability concluded: “It’s fantastic to see Thailand’s famous hospitality crossing international borders, not only to continue to build relationships but also to share sustainable practices that better the lives of indigenous wildlife across the globe.”
TAT Director Suladda Sarutilavan expanded on Thailand’s sustainability goals, explaining the Kingdom’s Bio-Circular-Green economy model and what that means for the future of tourism in Thailand, with initiatives to support the development of more sustainable hotels, conscious dining, and community-based tourism. TAT recently launched the 7 Greens campaign: Green Heart, Green Logistics, Green Attraction, Green Activity, Green Community, Green Service, Green Plus, which encourages resorts and tourism operators to adopt, step by step, more sustainable strategies for the future.
Minor Hotels recently joined hands with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the Royal Thai Embassy and the Koala Clancy Foundation in planting 1000 trees to help restore vital koala habitats in regional Australia.
“It is wonderful to see how passionate and dedicated the Koala Clancy Foundation has been to protecting and creating a habitat for koalas,” said Ambassador Ms Busadee Santipitaks. “The event resonates with Thailand’s continuing efforts to help restore elephant rainforest habitat in Thailand. Minor Hotels has long embraced sustainable pioneering efforts in Thailand to better the lives of captive elephants through Anantara’s Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation. Furthermore, the latest effort to offset carbon emissions is the Bangkok governor’s campaign to plant one million trees in Bangkok during the next four years.”
