PURPOSE: Clean Travel has developed this Sustainable Development Policy to identify, monitor and improve the environmental and social aspects of the company. We are committed to promoting, following and implementing sustainability to maximise positive impacts and minimise negative impacts on tourism from our operations, and to influence our partners to do the same. SCOPE: The Sustainable Development Policy applies to all Clean Travel employees and Clean Travel partners. THEMES AND GOALS: The Sustainable Development Policy is divided into 3 themes consisting of a set of principles and actions. The themes are: Internal Management; Partner Travel Operators and Accommodation Providers;
Destinations, Excursions and Activities.
1. Internal Management: Clean Travel commits to internal sustainability management, practised by following actions and principles that ensure environmental protection, enhance community relations, and protect human rights.

The wage rate is to be mentioned in the contract and equals or above the national legal wage.. Reduce transport-related impacts by telework, tele/video meetings, work-at-home policies or other means. Encourage employees to use environmentally conscious methods of transport when commuting to work, i.e. walking, cycling and public transport. Provide environmental guidance, training and information to all employees;
Encourage employee involvement.
2. Partner Travel Operators and Accommodation Providers: Clean Travel has developed and implemented a policy to improve the sustainability of our partners as part of its ongoing operations and Learning Academy. Clean Travel is committed to achieving a tourism supply chain that is fully sustainable and has created a community certification model for partner travel operators and accommodation providers to follow. Our community model has 3 pillars and is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 3 Clean Travel community pillars are:
Benefit the community by hiring local staff, provide fair wages and support locally-owned businesses (SDGs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10); Protect cultural heritage by celebrating cultural diversity alongside the conservation of wildlife and nature. Incorporate elements of local art, architecture, or cultural heritage; while respecting the intellectual property rights of local communities (SDGs 11, 16, 17); Be friends of the earth by proactively work towards a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment, with a special focus on waste management, water and energy-saving (SDGs 7, 12, 13, 14, 15). When selecting partners, preference will be given to travel operators and accommodation providers that contribute to two or more standards of the 3 pillars. They shall provide supporting information, evidence, or documentation, that demonstrates the implementation of the 3 pillars in their tourism policy. This information can be; evidence of sustainable travel certification, proof of the support of local charities, client reviews, amongst others.
Clean Travel Partners shall: Comply with all relevant national laws protecting the rights of employees. Provide a child protection policy if it is relevant to their operations. Have Legal registration documents, including those that show that they are legally able to provide the services advertised; Provide insurance documents, including those that show that they have the required civil, professional and public insurance to provide the services advertised. Provide clarification, with supporting documentation and evidence, on how they align with the Clean Travel Community. The evidence requested varies depending on the operator. Provide at least 20 publically available reviews (Tripadvisor, Google, etc.) that support the information provided.
3. Destinations, excursions and activities: Clean Travel safeguards the authenticity of the communities and the natural environment and is strongly against harming wildlife and polluting the environment. We aim to maximise positive impacts and minimise negative impacts at destinations to ensure the sustainable development of the places.
Clean Travel commits to: Not offer any excursions that harm humans, animals, plants, natural resources such as water and energy, or which are socially and culturally unacceptable.
III. Child Protection Policy on Travel and Tours:
Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility – this includes both the prevention of harm and abuse, and effectively responding to reports or suspicions of abuse. All travel organisations have a duty of care to protect all children they work with, have contact with, or who are affected by their work.
If you are a traveller please be aware of this issue and do not visit orphanages, give sweets to children or encourage them to beg. Children are not tourist attractions. Be aware of the risk of paedophilia. There is much more material on alternatives to orphanages here. The following resources may be useful for travel organisations working to improve their child protection policies and procedures: UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC). The UNCRC is the most widely ratified UN treaty in the world – it has been ratified by every country in the world with the exception of the United States of America. Childsafe has a comprehensive list of ‘hotlines’ for reporting child abuse in most countries around the world which can be accessed here: https://thinkchildsafe.org/report/

AA works in over 239 communities and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. And we never give up in the future protection protocol.
1. Education Project: All children have the right to go to school and learn, regardless of who they are, where they live or how much money their family has. Quality learning requires a safe, friendly environment, qualified and motivated teachers, and instruction in languages students can understand. It also requires that learning outcomes be monitored and feed back into instruction. In the countries around the world, ASEAN Adventure works to provide learning opportunities that prepare children and adolescents with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive their capability. Key areas of our work in education include: Access: Gender-equitable access to quality education from early childhood to adolescence, including for children with disabilities, marginalized children and those living in humanitarian and emergency settings. Learning and skills: Quality learning outcomes and skills development that come from strong education systems and innovative solutions hub. Emergencies and fragile contexts: Improved learning and protection for children in emergencies and on the move for righting future. The lesson of the learning crisis is clear: Business as usual is not improving learning outcomes. A new, more radical approach that focuses on enhancing learning is long overdue and forms the basis of talent global education strategy. To establish a world in which every child learns, AA will increasingly promote equity and inclusion. This includes making targeted efforts for children who are excluded on the basis of gender, disability, margined, poverty, ethnicity and language, as well as those who are displaced or affected by emergencies.
2. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene & Climate Change/Livelihoods: Clean water, basic toilets and good hygiene practices are essential for the survival and development of children. Today, there are around 2.4 billion people who do not use improved sanitation, and 663 million who do not have access to improved water sources. Globally, plastic waste generation has soared to unimaginable levels. To date, we have generated 8.3 billion metric tons of waste, and we are expected to reach a total volume of 12 billion tonnes by 2050. In Cambodia, the plastic waste problem is complex; however, as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change, finding a solution is a necessity. Plastic consumption in Cambodia is synonymous with daily life.
3. Health and Nutrition Project: In 2018, 6.2 million children and youngadolescents died, mostly from preventable causes. Children under the age of 5 accounted for 5.3 million of these deaths – nearly half of whom were newborn babies.(Every five seconds, a child dies somewhere in the world)What’s more, some 810 women die each day from causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Many of these deaths can be avoided. But inadequate access to quality health care and life-saving supplies still contributes significantly to preventable maternal and child deaths. Disease, environmental hazard and the devastating effects of conflict, insecurity and demographic change also take a toll.
4.Gender Equity Project: Globally, only 24% of people heard, seen or read about in the news are women. This gender gap is widest in news about politics and government, where women are featured in just 16% of political news. The United for News coalition launches Reflect Reality, a digital manual to help newsrooms include more authoritative female and diverse voices in their stories. Led by Internews in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, United for News’ Reflect Reality incorporates proven strategies and lessons learned from two dozen organizations around the world working to address this disparity. Girl, Youth & Women's Voices: women sit next to each other, one holds a childInternews’ “Women’s Voices” is working to challenge societal attitudes that stigmatize survivors of sexual and gender-based violence in Iraq. Women’s rights activists and journalists in Iraq rarely work together. Internews is connecting these groups for the first time, to learn from each other and help shed light on sensitive issues with reporting and advocacy.
5.Animal Production: Animal production is a faith-filled resource to help children, youth and adults see themselves as part of the Cambodia family and gain a deeper appreciation of the ways in which ASEAN Adventure helps people, animals and the environment live in harmony as God’s great creation of project impact.
6. Wildlife’s Project: We human activities threaten wildlife in two main ways: by destroying and damaging the places where wildlife lives, and by using them in ways that are unsustainable. Vast areas of natural habitat continue to be lost to agriculture, urban sprawl, mining and infrastructure, or are suffering from the effects of pollution, introduced species that often out-compete native wildlife, and, increasingly, climate change. Meanwhile, many species are declining because of unsustainable levels of hunting, fishing and harvesting. Others are being driven toward extinction to support the international wildlife trade, or killed when they come into direct conflict with humans and livestock in Cambodia as well as globally.
