Keeping Gianyar Green

Gianyar Regency in Bali to Require Hotels to be ‘Green’

(9/16/2012) The Gianyar regency is preparing new regulations that will govern the way in which new hotels are built and ensure that accommodation projects are “green” and friendly to the environment.

The regulations will also impact on existing properties in the regency that includes the popular Bali tourist destination of Ubud.

In announcing the new regulations, Beritabali.com quotes the regent of Gianyar, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati, as promising that his regency would become more selective in accepting new hotel investments.

“The essence is how to build green hotels; new hotels must follow the new rules. Existing hotels will need to follow these rules when renewing their permits . . .we have begun to describe how to use energy, handle sewage – this will all be part of the permit issuance process,” explained Tjokorda.

Tjokorda said the new regulations would also include a larger role for the public in supervising hotel development in Gianyar.
