Green is the Color of Luxury in Bali

St. Regis Bali Maintains Earth Check Qualifications

(5/26/2013) Earth Check - the world’s leading certifier of travel and tourism organizations, has recognized the high standard of environmental performance practiced by The St. Regis Bali Resort.

The St. Regis Bali Resort has joined industry leaders from more than 100 countries by being awarded Earth Check Silver Certified Status for the second consecutive year.

To gain this coveted recognition, the resort submitted itself to scrutiny by a team of independent auditors applying standards that adhere to internationally recognized standards of best environmental practice.

Earth Check Audits rate the effectiveness of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve natural resources on a project-by-project basis. 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: policy, benchmarking, compliance, approach, performance and communication. The last section details the requirements for communicating an organization’s environmental and social commitment, goals and objectives to all stakeholders.

By taking a scientific approach to measuring the effectiveness of their sustainability practices, The St. Regis Bali Resort identifies where they are out-performing others and areas for possible improvement.

“It is indeed our goal that guests feeling better and secured when they stay with us, we recognize the importance of not compromising the environment to achieve this objective. We are pleased to be able to retain our Earth Check Silver,” said Lucia Liu, Hotel Manager of The St. Regis Bali Resort.
