PHUKET: Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket recently achieved the Green Globe Certification, an internationally accepted standard for sustainability and the first Green Globe certified Hotel & Resort in Phuket, Thailand.

The award highlights Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket’s commitment to conducting business in an environmentally, socially, and culturally responsible and more sustainable manner.

“We believe that economic growth and the well-being of society are inextricably tied to the health of the environment. Through collaboration with our team, suppliers and business partners, we have been actively working to reduce the environmental impact of our business activities, and to continually improve and innovate on practices while at the same time meeting current needs”, said Mr. Hansruedi Frutiger, General Manager of Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket.

“We are also very proud that we are the first resort in Phuket and the first Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in Asia certified by “Green Globe” with a score of 78 per cent.” added Mr Frutiger.

Green Globe is identified around the world as representing quality in sustainability practices within travel, tourism and related industries. Being awarded with a Green Globe certification means that an extensive list of requirements has been fulfilled. From key indicators on energy usage, water consumption and waste output management to employee training and implementation of customer satisfaction measures, the resort achieved outstanding results.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is aiming for all properties to be stamped with Green Globe credentials within two years. The strategy is part of a company-wide program to establish a common and global approach to environmental, employer and social sustainability.
