MARCOPOLO GREEN PROJECTS
We are proud to practice sustainable tourism principals by minimizing our impact on the environment, developing our local area by buying local and supporting our community and employees. We committed to being transparent and evidence –based about how we are seeking to increase the benefits of tourism to local people and places , in an effort to eliminate the greenwashing that had undermined ecotourism.
GREEN PROJECTS AND PHILANTHROPY
Marco Polo is an avid believer of sustainability and eco-tourism and is currently visiting villages and developing ideas in rural areas in order to bolster small-scale trades for local revenue. Such trades include the production of local food and handicrafts, and attempting to improve their quality so that they sellable on a wider market. Our current target areas include the regions in Kayah state, home of the long-necked Padaung people, or the Kayan.
