Sustainability & Environmental Policy

While Aitken Spence Travels is focused on providing authentic experiences and adventures as you travel in Sri Lanka, we also strive to be eco-conscious in every aspect. This deep commitment is entrenched in all processes of the company as we not only meet international eco standards, but also look to take practical measures. This includes getting involved with local communities and stakeholders to help come up with sustainable initiatives.

We are committed:

  • To provide quality services to our customers and principals and to develop and offer sustainable tourism products and services in Sri Lanka
  • To comply with relevant laws and regulations of the industry and to consider international environmental standards
  • To take necessary action to identify potential adverse impacts on the environment; additionally, to implement internal and external activities that will minimise, if not eliminate, adverse impacts on the environment and the cultural identity of the local community
  • To conduct the necessary educational and capacity building programmes for all key stakeholders to achieve the objectives and targets of our Environmental Management System (EMS)
  • To embrace opportunities to share our experience in environmental and social development initiatives with key stakeholders and to work with them collectively, to encourage good environmental practices within the tourism industry in Sri Lanka
  • To routinely engage with our top management to review our performance on the environment and social objectives and set targets
