En Asie, le tourisme durable peine à émerger, Novethic.fr newsletter, 9 January 09
Sorry this one is in French and there is only my name and no link to Greenselipar. But yes it’s one thing I said this day at the RT seminar organized by Taylor University and Wild Asia.
The title of the article could be translated as “Responsible tourism is emerging slowly in Asia.”
The article focuses on the concerns faced by responsible tourism professionals and the core issues they need to address : environmental management, RT labels, better marketing and communication,more transparency etc..
“Catherine Bossis, qui dirige un site d’information sur le tourisme responsable en Malaisie, insiste sur la confiance entre consommateurs et prestataires d’offre durable : « les vacances responsables sont plus chères, parfois trop. En contrepartie de ce supplément, il faut plus de transparence sur les retombées positives du tourisme durable. »
“Catherine Bossis director of a website about responsible tourism, insists on the needs for more transparency ”Responsible tourism can be more expensive, and sometimes not affordable. Travelers would be ready to pay more for a responsible tourism service if they are sure that this money is used for responsible management”.
Created in 2001, Novethic is the leading research center in France on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Socially Responsible Investment (SRI). They provide information and expert resources to business leaders, investors, NGOs and academics interested or already involved in CSR and SRI.
Thanks to Helène Ledeunff, from Singapore, who wrote the article.
Forget about the photo (I am not drunk, I had a bad cold and stupid face), and thank you for your post in Stone Soup of an online business.
Thanks to PIN who wrote the post.
Actually we had a very interesting discussion about how can we rank hotels, destinations, restaurants, places to visit, tours, guides… with travelers feedback and including responsible travel criteria. How to make it easy and intuitive for non-experts travelers? We need to share different views to be able to find an appropriate solution.

What does it say..
“It usually takes a visitor to discover the best stuffs that locals fail to see. And Catherine B. does it in style which best depicts her French flair.
We caught up in Catherine recently in Ipoh and exchanged ideas over coffee break, during her pitstop in our home state Perak.
An expat living with her family in KL, Catherine wasted no time combing the best places around Malaysia and have jotted down all her findings since Sept 2008 in a blog titled “Sustainable Tourism Guide Malaysia”. The blog explains its driving principle with this statement … “each of the projects featured in GreenSelipar relates the author’s first-hand. We do not receive any money, gifts, tokens or favors of any kind from anybody. We paid the same fees that any traveler would pay for the hotel, guesthouse, visit or service”.
So there you are. If you need an insider account that’s beyond hype and hoopla, GreenSelipar.com is a good down-to-earth option to check out. “
Thank you very much Casey
