Seeking Sustainability in Bali

One of only five hotels in the world to be awarded the distinction of EarthCheck Platinum, Meliá Bali has passed its latest review with flying colors and maintained its EarthCheck Platinum certification.

EarthCheck is the leading benchmarking, certification and environmental management program used by the travel and tourism industry.

For over a decade, EarthCheck has been collecting data relating to the operational performance of more than 1300 travel and tourism organizations in over 84 countries. This has enabled EarthCheck clients to competitively benchmark the efficiency of their operations against internationally compliant standards of best practice.

EarthCheck recognizes 39 sectors in the travel and tourism industry and helps operators to monitor, measure and manage their environmental, social and economic impacts. This includes the reporting of Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) and consumption of natural resources.

EarthCheck Platinum is on the highest distinctions awarded by the company. Meliá Bali achieved 2011 EarthCheck Platinum Certification after earning EarthCheck Gold certification from 2007 to 2010.

“We believe the hospitality industry in Bali is highly dependent on the island’s unspoiled environment and the culture of its people,” said Jim Boyles, General Manager of Meliá Bali. “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. Meliá 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.”

“Platinum Certification is not a green tick that can be purchased or applied for,” Jim Boyles explained. “It must be 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 its belief that the planet deserves more than half measures.”'
