OUR COMPANY IS COMMITTED TO PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE ACCOMMODATION.
In order to work closely with our accommodation suppliers, a sustainability policy is a must to have. With these, both of us, our company, and our accommodation suppliers benefit from the sustainable practices along the value chain whereby they will be chosen for our clients.
The policy is designed based on the following sustainable accommodation principles that the establishment is least expected to follow:
1. REASONABLE PRICE
The price set needs to be fair with what it offers. Above all, the cleanliness and hygienic parts of its services with sustainable practices.
2. ELIMINATE OR MINIMIZE NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIETY
It gives high priority to sustainable practices, aiming at eliminating (if possible) or minimizing the negative impacts on the surrounding environment and society.
3. WORK ON CAPACITY BUILDING OF ITS HUMAN RESOURCES
It creates an enabling environment for its human resources and also works well in training the staff through different methods such as on-the-job training, exposure visits, experience sharing with senior experts, etc.
4. FAIR BUSINESS
It follows fair business practices such as transparency and compliance with rules and requirements set by the law, the rights of its employees in particular and humans as a whole, economic/social equity, and concern for the flora and fauna of the environment.
5. CHILD LABOUR
The business does not contract directly or indirectly accommodations that are involved in compulsory labor or employ children to complete work that is normally undertaken by adults. There are special working times and conditions for children (< 14 years) working within the business, under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and/or the ILO Convention 138. The condition is mentioned in the contract with the accommodation.
6. SEXUAL EXPLOITATION
Hotels and B&Bs are in a unique position to help because evidence shows that B&Bs and hotels are often used as locations to meet, groom, and abuse children (both girls and boys). Girls and boys, from any culture, ethnicity, religion, or background, under the age of 18 who are coerced or forced into a sexual relationship or situation by another person. It often involves young people being offered something in return for performing sexual acts, for example: • Alcohol • Cigarettes • Mobile Phones • Gifts • Money • Drugs • Love
