(5/2/2005)

Bali Hotel Association (BHA) has announced that 18 of its members recently qualified themselves as affiliates of Green Globe 21 program allowing them to display that logo at their respective properties. Affiliate status demonstrates that these hotels have a commitment to creating a cleaner environment, better communities and better businesses. The latest round of qualifications brings to 24 the number of BHA members (39 %) enrolled in the Green Globe 21 program.

Green Globe 21 is an internationally recognized benchmarking, certification and improvement system that guides participants on the path to sustainable travel and tourism. It is based on sustainable development principles endorsed by 182 heads of state at the United Nations' 1992 Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit.

Last year, BHA’s Environmental Director, Amanda Pummer, headed a movement to encourage BHA member enrollment in Green Globe 21.

"The idea is to give our destination a competitive advantage by demonstrating our commitment to environmental standards," said BHA Vice Chairman, Ian McKie.

Consumers, who are increasingly concerned about the environment, may look to the Green Globe 21 Standards for quality assurance via participants on all continents and approximately 50 countries worldwide. Worthy of note, of the 30 Green Globe hotels in Indonesia, 80 percent are in Bali.

Green Globe 21 has lifted performance thresholds for sustainable tourism. The World Travel & Tourism Council developed Green Globe as a membership and commitment-based program. The Green Globe 21 standard and independent auditing system were introduced in 1999. In 2001, measurements of environmental improvement through benchmarking on an annual basis commenced. The variety of benefits achieved through the Standards can include cost savings through decreasing energy consumption, waste generation and water use.

Environmental performance is assessed against benchmarks or baselines in sustainability policy; energy consumption; water consumption; solid waste production; greenhouse gas emissions; social commitment; resource conservation and cleaning chemical use. All levels of Green Globe 21 participation require annual renewal, benchmarking and certification. A resort can work toward targets over time, committing to continual improvement.
