Airbnb pledges US$2 million for sustainable projects in APAC

Putting money into worthy tourism projects

Airbnb announced at the APEC CEO Summit in Danang yesterday that it would invest US$2 million until 2020 to promote and support innovative tourism projects throughout Asia-Pacific.

The commitment is part of Airbnb’s vision to strengthen communities through “healthy tourism” and to empower hospitality entrepreneurs across the region.

An Airbnb statement defines healthy travel as authentic, affordable experiences that distribute the economic benefits to more people and more places, and that occur through use of people’s existing resources.

The fund will be available to organisations—including DMOs, NGOs, non- profit agencies and community social groups—in need of financial support for innovative tourism projects.
