Movenpick Karon certified as Asian leader in sustainability

Published

 on 

PHUKET: Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket was named Asia’s top performer in certified sustainable practices by Green Globe, an industry renowned certification body.

Green Globe’s 2015 report on Movenpick Hotels & Resorts revealed that the Karon-based resort has an overall compliance score of 86 per cent, while the group’s overall average compliance score is 84 per cent, 2.5 per cent higher than the average of all Green Globe certified members worldwide.

The report commended Movenpick Phuket for its innovative initiatives, such as the introduction of a hybrid-limousine fleet and electric tuk tuks.

The certification cements Movenpick Hotels & Resorts’ position as the most ‘Green Globe certified hotel company in the world’, with 63 of its 83 properties now certified.

“Green Globe has certified Movenpick hotels in 19 countries. This is a tremendous accomplishment when we consider the variety of countries and cultures, as well as the different types of properties and their diverse markets,” says Green Globe CEO Guido Bauer.

The report also commended Movenpick for its “great passion for the development of its employees and supporting local communities”, highlighting SHINE, the group’s global corporate social responsibility program, which focuses on environment, employer and social sustainability, with an emphasis on education.

Jean Gabriel Per่s, President and CEO of Movenpick Hotels & Resort, said that he was immensely proud of the teams’ dedication to Green Globe commitments, especially in a world where resources are increasingly scarce and many communities are underprivileged.
