EC3 Global - the world's largest assessment system for sustainable travel and tourism operators has bestowed the Meliã Bali Resort with a prestigious EarthCheck Platinum certification – one of only five hotels in the world to be so honored.

The EarthCheck program provides benchmarking, certification and performance improvement systems that result in average savings of 30 per cent for energy and waste stream, and 20 percent savings for water consumption.

The EarthCheck Program is widely regarded as the world's most scientifically rigorous program of its kind, focused on maximizing operational efficiencies to minimize CO2e emissions, while supporting host communities. It looks at key environmental indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production as well as community commitment in order to determine the level of performance.

Only those organizations that can consistently demonstrate operational practices that adhere to the highest environmental standards over a period of 10 years, can be considered for the coveted Platinum Certification.

"Meliã Bali has always been a leader in promoting sustainable tourism," explained Jim Boyles, General Manager of Meliã Bali. "We are the first hotel in Asia to be given the distinction of EarthCheck Platinum and one of only five hotels in the world."

"We believe the hospitality industry in Bali is highly dependent on the island's unspoiled environment and the culture of its people. 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," Boyles added.

"Meliã 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."

Prior to achieving certification, Meliã Bali successfully bench-marked and certified its operations each year, using EarthCheck's tools. This involved the submission of a year's worth of operational data.

"I congratulate Meliã Bali in their achievement of EarthCheck certified Platinum status," said Stewart Moore, CEO of EC3 Global. "Meliã Bali is one of less than a handful of organizations in the world to have achieved this and should be viewed as a leader in the field of sustainable tourism."

Moore continued: "Platinum Certification is not a green tick that can be purchased or applied for. It must be duly 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 their belief that the planet deserves more than half measures."
