In the hotel industry, more and more brands are placing an emphasis on corporate social responsibility. Some of these brands are thinking outside of simply making charitable donations and are implementing initiatives that engage travellers and target aid to specific communities. And it looks like the hospitality industry in Malaysia is doing a pretty good job in that.
