Asia’s forum to drive solutions for the tourism industry’s most pressing issues

From plastics to multi-stakeholder partnerships, sustainable seafood to smart tourism

CSR Asia announces the launch of Sustainable Tourism Asia on 29 November 2018 at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore.

CSR Asia, an ELEVATE company, brings its global sustainability expertise and Asia focus to this forum that addresses gaps and challenges in the Asian sustainable tourism ecosystem.
