Meliá Bali has once again qualified for EarthCheck Platinum certification in acknowledgement of that Nusa Dua property’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

Meliá Bali first earned its EarthCheck Platinum status in 2011.
The most recent EarthCheck Platinum plaque was presented by Mike Duggan EC3 Global’s General Manage for Sustainability to Magdalena Martorell, Hotel Manager of Melia Bali on November 7th, 2012.

“We believe the hospitality industry in Bali is highly dependent on the island’s unspoiled environment and the culture of its people,” says Jim Boyles, General Manager of Meliá Bali. “Visitors come especially to enjoy Bali’s unique cultural heritage. A better living standard and quality of life for the Balinese people will ensure the future of Bali’s hospitality industry."

Meliá Bali is committed to continually improving its award-winning performance in environmental and social sustainability and annual benchmarking to enhance the culture of its people and at the same time to preserve the environment.”

EarthCheck is a leading global benchmarking and certification program for sustainable travel and tourism. It reviews and assesses the performance of a hotel in eight different areas - from the implementation of a sustainable development strategy, water and energy consumption, waste management, paper consumption, the use of pesticides and the use of cleaning and hygiene products as well as the hotels commitment to the local community.

“Platinum Certification is not a green tick that can be purchased or applied for,” Jim Boyles explains. “It must be earned over a decade of verifiable commitment to the highest possible standards of operational practices. The resort has recognized a maturing of the science behind climate change and environmental sustainability, and has demonstrated its belief that the planet deserves more than half measures.”

Changing regulatory environments, rapidly evolving markets and complex risk implications require organizations to access specialized tools and expertise. By taking a science-based approach, Meliá Bali through the EarthCheck program has increased efficiencies, maximized guest experience and taken steps to minimize its environmental footprint.

Stewart Moore, CEO of EC3 Global, congratulated Meliá on its commitment to sustainability and the group’s achievements.

"For over a decade, we have worked with Meliá Bali to help them to address the twin challenges of climate change and reducing their environmental footprint. Meliá Bali is one of EarthCheck’s standout sustainability heroes in the Asian region and we are amazed every day by the innovative solutions our clients are achieving,” said Moore.
