Southeast Asia leading travel platform, Traveloka, has announced its support to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) to become its first-ever Platinum Sponsor. The sponsorship demonstrates Traveloka's commitment to elevating the sustainability standards of the tourism and hospitality industry worldwide.

As a Platinum Sponsor, Traveloka will partner closely with GSTC to fulfil tourism's potential as a vehicle for social, cultural, and economic good. Traveloka will also provide essential support to GSTC when it hosts its annual global conference in Singapore this November for the first time.

Caesar Indra, President of Traveloka noted "as Traveloka strives to connect more Southeast Asian travellers with global tourism destinations, we are solidifying our commitment to responsibly managing the sustainability impact of our business and travellers who use our platform.

"By becoming GSTC's first-ever Platinum Sponsor, we are strengthening our pledge to foster a more responsible global tourism industry so that future generations can continue to experience the joys and pleasures of travel."

Traveloka first joined GSTC in 2022, where it pledged to foster a more sustainable and responsible global tourism ecosystem. Since becoming a member, Traveloka has led by example and driven multiple regional initiatives, such as sponsoring sustainable tourism courses for hotels and government agencies across Southeast Asia. Traveloka also introduced features to enable users to identify and book hotels with sustainability certifications aligned with GSTC standards.

Randy Durband, Chief Executive of Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) added "we warmly welcome Traveloka as a Platinum Sponsor. GSTC is a mission-driven non-profit organization, and this sponsorship will be a significant boost in our work to build a more sustainable and responsible global travel industry.

“Over the past two years, Traveloka has put their words into action by leading many sustainability initiatives that have resulted in positive impact across Southeast Asia. We look forward to working closely with Traveloka to push the industry's sustainability agenda to greater heights."
