Keeping the Good Earth in Check

St. Regis Bali Resort and The Laguna, A Luxury Collection Earn “Silver Certified” Status in Environmental Practice from Earth Check

(6/18/2012) Earth Check – a leading certifier of green sustainability practice for travel and tourism organizations, has recognized St. Regis Bali Resort and The Laguna Resort and Spa for achieving a high standard of environmental performance.

In winning “Silver Certified” status from Earth Check the two Nusa Dua properties join leading tourism companies from more than 100 countries who have successfully impressed a team of independent auditors with their adherence to standards and best practice to minimize their environmental footprints. Earth Check rates the effectiveness of industry efforts to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) and conserve natural resources at a project-by-project level. The data is then measured against a number of key indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production, and community commitment.

There are 6 major points that reviewed by the Auditors for both resorts: policy, benchmarking, compliance, approach, performance and communication. The last section details the requirements for communicating an organisation’s environmental and social commitment, goals and objectives to all stakeholders.

Using a scientific approach for measuring the effectiveness of their sustainability practices, The St. Regis Bali Resort & The Laguna Resort & Spa use established benchmarks that identify the efficacy of their green policies and point to areas for future improvement.

Certification by Earth Check is not a certainty; Securing a highly-ranked benchmarking result requires a strong commitment across all levels of an organization and the imbedding of sustainability principles into all policies and procedures.
