As the UAE’s leading destination management company, Arabian Adventures has always been at the forefront of keeping the Middle East pristine and beautiful and remains the only operator to consistently win the CEMARS (Carbon and Energy Measurement and Reduction Scheme) award. This month, however, we took the next step when we were awarded the Travelife Engaged Certificate for sustainability.
With more than 500 members across 80 countries, including tourism companies, elite cruise lines and incentive houses, Travelife provides a set of high standards to aspire to and has become a global benchmark for responsible experiences and products. Best of all, Arabian Adventures joins its sister company, Dnata, in becoming part of this coveted and globally recognised commitment to sustainable tourism.
Amongst the achievements that led to this award are –
- Being one of the few companies trusted to operate in the protected Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve (DDCR), with a portion of each safari fee donated to support its vital conservation work.
- Removing all single-use plastic from our desert experiences.
- Spearheading garbage segregation and recycling in the reserve.
- Our ongoing commitment to keeping this precious zone clean and authentic for future generations.
Arabian Adventures has also created a dedicated green team to co-ordinate and pioneer our efforts, both now and in the future. The next step is to take this achievement even further by securing Travelife’s elite, next level of certification, which Arabian Adventures aims to do before the end of the year.
We’ll keep you posted on our progress right here.
