Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui has successfully achieved the prestigious EarthCheck Silver Status Certification. To earn this, we had to report our environmental footprint to independent auditors and adhere to internationally recognized standard of Best Practice. Securing a highly ranked benchmarking result requires a strong commitment across all levels of the organization and the imbedding of sustainability principles into all policies and procedures.
During the process, Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui was also required to submit a year's worth of operational data which was benchmarked against industry Best Practice. The data was then measured against a number of key indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production, and community commitment.
For economies reliant on travel and tourism, EarthCheck’s benchmarking data provides the only historical record of the global environmental impacts of the industry over the past 12 years. More importantly, it rates the effectiveness of industry efforts to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) and conserve natural resources at a project-by-project level.
In order to achieve this award, the key is to accelerate staff awareness and everyone’s involvement for their specific green actions in the daily operations. With this great achievement for Benchmarking, Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui will continue to strengthen its commitment to environmental and social issues in an effective, efficient and sustainable way.
