Sustainable Business Model

How Our Sustainable Business Model Empowers Indonesia

At Wicked Adventures, we are deeply committed to embracing regenerative tourism in Indonesia while prioritizing inclusivity and supporting the empowerment of marginalized communities, including women in traditional cultures. 

We understand that the challenges and opportunities in a developing country like Indonesia make our journey both fun and meaningful, as we play a larger role in making a positive difference in the longer term. Here’s how we integrate these principles into our sustainable business model:

Engaging and Benefiting the Communities We Visit:

  • We actively seek to engage and involve marginalized communities, ensuring their representation in tourism planning, decision-making, and product development. This includes women, indigenous groups, and other marginalized populations.
  • We provide economic opportunities specifically targeted toward marginalized communities by hiring and training individuals from these communities. This empowers them economically and ensures their meaningful participation in the tourism industry, bridging existing social gaps.
  • We support community development initiatives that focus on empowering marginalized communities. This may include initiatives that promote access to education, healthcare, vocational training, and cultural preservation, tailored to address the specific challenges faced by these communities.

Staff Well-Being and Work-Life Balance:

  • We prioritize inclusivity within our own workforce, actively seeking to employ individuals from the communities we visit. This includes women and marginalized groups, providing them with equal opportunities for employment, advancement, and leadership roles.
  • We offer training programs and mentorship opportunities to support the personal and professional growth of our staff. By equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge, we empower them to thrive in the tourism industry and contribute to their community’s well-being.
  • We promote work-life balance and provide supportive policies that consider the unique needs of individuals. This may include flexible working hours, accommodations for cultural practices, and support for family responsibilities.

Supporting Vendors in Finding Sustainable Solutions:

  • We actively seek out and support vendors and suppliers in the community, whenever possible. By sourcing products and services locally, we contribute to their economic empowerment and provide them with a platform for showcasing their cultural heritage.
  • We provide guidance and resources tailored to the specific needs of vendors from these communities, helping them understand and implement sustainable practices in their operations. We offer mentorship, capacity building, and networking opportunities to enhance their success and sustainability.
  • We recognize and promote the achievements and contributions of vendors, highlighting their unique offerings and providing them with exposure to a wider audience.

Financial Viability for Long-Term Success:

  • We ensure that our sustainable business practices contribute to the economic empowerment of the people and cultures we operate in. By supporting local vendors and suppliers, we create economic opportunities that uplift these communities and foster greater social inclusion.
  • We actively collaborate with local organizations and NGOs that focus on empowerment and local cultures, seeking partnerships that amplify our impact and create sustainable change.
  • We continuously evaluate and improve our financial planning and management practices to ensure the long-term success and sustainability of our operations. This enables us to continue our commitment to the many diverse cultures of Indonesia.

By integrating these principles into our sustainable business model, we aim to foster positive impacts on local communities, create a supportive work environment for our staff, empower communities, drive sustainable practices among vendors, minimize our ecological footprint, account for our carbon emissions and continually seek opportunities for improvement. Our pledge emphasizes inclusivity, gender equality, and economic empowerment in traditional societies. Choosing our company means joining us on a journey toward regenerative and sustainable tourism in Indonesia, where together we make a meaningful and lasting difference for the communities we visit and the environment we cherish.
