Conference for responsible and conscious travel in Cambodia
Object: Press release of the conference for responsible and conscious travel in Cambodia on March 22nd, 2023
This Wednesday, March 22nd 2023, the Cambodian Ministry of Environment, All Dreams Cambodia, and Teuk Saat 1001 have organized a press conference to enhance a more conscious travel experience; they explained how All Dreams Cambodia is working on calculating, reducing and compensating its carbon footprint and its clients one to encourage the tourism industry in Cambodia into a more sustainable sector and join the battle against climate change.
As the conference took place during World Water Day, they honoured the achievements made so far by Teuk Saat 1001 in the access to safe drinking water in rural Cambodia and the contribution made by All Dreams Cambodia to reduce the impact of Climate Change.
Teuk Saat 1001 mission’, as a Cambodian NGO, is to improve the health and livelihoods of rural communities by establishing a decentralized communal-based solution called water kiosks providing safe and affordable drinking water. The water kiosk model, in operation since 2005, non-only strengthens access to safe water in rural Cambodia but is also proven to reduce Co2 emissions since around 17000t are avoided yearly. The drinking water production process, combined with the delivery of water jugs at home, allows Teuk Saat 1001 to be eligible for carbon finance. Indeed, since the beneficiaries receive water at home, they don’t have to boil it with charcoal or wood to make it safe for consumption.
Teuk Saat 1001 is proud to be among the few organizations emitting carbon credit globally from and for a Cambodian project since 2017.
All Dreams Cambodia was founded in 2013 by four travel specialists passionate about promoting Cambodia as an attractive standalone tourism destination. As a Destination Management Company (DMC), All Dreams Cambodia has been offering authentic and bespoke travel experiences and programs to our clients while trying our best to transform our good intentions into actions.
From the beginning, All Dreams Cambodia has always made a point to contribute positively to the socioeconomic development of our beloved country while preserving its precious natural and cultural heritage.
As All Dreams Cambodia is fully aware of the negative impacts tourism activities might have on people and the planet, All Dreams Cambodia is advocating for responsible behaviours and sustainable practices to its staff, partners, suppliers and guests.
Their sustainability endeavours are a constant work in progress and won’t fulfil our dreams of a better world alone. Therefore, All Dreams Cambodia joined hands with partners like Teuk Saat 1001 to compensate their carbon footprint and clients by buying carbon credits from Teuk Saat project’ that will directly benefit Cambodia and the rural communities.
