  • Eco Means of Travel
    Of course, sometimes you have no choice. You have to take a plane to move from one continent to another, but seriously, there is no need to fly from London to Paris, or Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur, as there are much greener, equally fast and more comfortable ways of moving around Europe, Asia and any other part of the world.
  • KLIA-Leading in Eco-Standards
    In 2004, KLIA became the first airport in the world to win the Green Globe 21 Certification, in line with the United Nations Conference on Environment & Development (UNCED) Agenda 21. Winning the Green Globe 21 Certification means this attractive airport is “committed to Sustainable Travel & Tourism through Control & Implementation of Environmental and Social Aspects.” Today, KLIA has won this certification for an unprecedented sixth year in a row, setting a global benchmark that an international aviation consultant has described as “the standard the rest of the world needs to come up to.”
  • Benchmark for National Parks
    The Tourism Ministry intends to use Kinabalu National Park as the benchmark for a quality rating system for other national parks. Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said the rating would be a useful guide for foreign tourists and a way to improve the quality and management of parks.
  • What Ecotourism should be
    The dirt track bends hard to the left over a drainage ditch in the rural village of Yucul in the central highlands of Nicaragua. The rutted road continues up a lush mountainside, past banana plants heavy with fruit and tree canopies inhabited by howler monkeys and sloths, to an outpost high in the rain forest. Carved out of the mountain 4,000 feet up, the setting offers spectacular views of the Dariense mountain range and the green valley far below. - This is Finca Esperanza Verde, a unique experiment in ecotourism and local empowerment. Part organic coffee farm and part tourist lodge, the finca—Spanish for farm—has been spearheaded by a Unitarian Universalist couple with dreams of helping local Nicaraguans find profitable and sustainable ways to share their culture with visiting tourists.
