Agoda, GSTC, and USAID Partner to Champion Sustainability Education for Hotels in Asia

International news
Digital travel platform Agoda, the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have partnered to provide sustainability trainings for hoteliers across Asia, which will strengthen the sustainability transformation and foster green growth within the region's hotel industry, with models that have the potential for global application.

The Sustainable Tourism Development Initiative builds on the success of Agoda's ongoing partnership with the GSTC, which has provided sustainability education for hundreds of hoteliers to date across India, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand to support the industry to meet the rising consumer demand for more sustainable accommodation options. This partnership with USAID, through the US-Supporting Economic Growth in Asia (US-SEGA) activity, expands the training scope and geographic coverage to additional markets in South and Southeast Asia.
