EXO Travel: How a Tour Operator can Influence its Supply Chain to be More Sustainable

Presenters: Alexandra Michat Roux, EXO Foundation Manager & EXO Travel Director of Sustainability

How can DMCs influence hotels and other travel suppliers to become more sustainable? Alexandra of EXO Travel will share how EXO is working to influence its suppliers (hotels, restaurants, etc.) to choose a more sustainable path. When EXO Travel contract suppliers, they ask them to sign EXO’s sustainability addendum. It includes main requirements regarding sustainability (both ethics & environmental protection) & health/safety. This has already been signed by 619 partner hotels.
