Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts Commemorates World Environment Day
Following Banyan Tree’s pledge to eliminate single-use plastic by Earth Day 2020, the Group will focus on beating plastic pollution with the message “if you can’t reuse it, refuse it”. Cleaning communities will be a core component of the Greening Communities Together initiative, with awareness campaigns and social/environmental guest engagement activities. This aligns with the United Nation’s sustainable development goals of responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water and life on land. #BeatPlasticPollution #BanyanTreeGlobalFoundation #BanyanTreeSustainability https://ift.tt/2vFhhb4 https://ift.tt/2Lnfomk

2017 was the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, as declared by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation. .
As such, we took the opportunity to align our environmental and social contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals for Sustainable Development. All 17 SDGs were directly or indirectly addressed through our efforts on seven key areas: climate change, pollution and waste, biodiversity, ethical compliance and corruption, data security, employee satisfaction and leadership. .
Some of the company’s achievements in the past year include 15,142 planted trees, 32,889 kilograms of trash collected and the support of 100 youths through its Seedlings mentorship programme.

Citizen Science is one of the Guest Sustainability Activities at our hotels and resorts. It is an opportunity for guests to engage and learn more about the local environment and what they can do to help. In Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, data collected by guests helps the hotel’s Marine Lab assess the overall health of the reefs and marine creatures. .
Since starting Citizen Science in 2016, our labs have recorded 5,158 shark sightings (Maldives) and 2,731 bird sightings (Indonesia) – gathered from 5,502 participants.
.
Recently, one very pro-active guest created a map of all his sightings that not only provided great assistance to the team in the Maldives, but it also demonstrated that our guests share the same interests, values and beliefs as we do in driving sustainability. It is very heartening to see how we can inspire others to love and care for the environment.

Banyan Tree Seychelles works closely with the Marine Conservation Society of Seychelles (MCSS) to monitor turtle activity on Intendance Bay as part of the MCSS’ conservation efforts; last season they calculated at least 10,000 new hatchlings made their way into the water. The resort has recently launched a
special programme, “Management of Turtle-Human Interactions and Turtle Rehabilitation”, to rehabilitate injured marine turtles before they are released back into the wild. Aside from observing marine turtles as they arrive to lay their eggs, guests can also observe turtles hatching from September to March and visit the turtles at the rehabilitation centre.

On March 17, @banyantreemayakoba participated in the third edition of the “colillaton” with 900 grams of cigarette butts that were collected in the beach areas of the hotel. The objective of this movement is to collect waste in order to make pots (made with cigarette butts, sawdust and paper). The cigarette butts will disintegrate in a few years thus eliminating waste and pollution. It is a rewarding experience to be able to make a change in the environment, avoiding the contamination of thousands of liters of water.

On 12 March, China commemorated Arbor Day – a day when trees are celebrated and the community is encouraged to plant trees. Banyan Tree Sanya decided to create an organic garden, making use of the space beside the pool bar. The hotel’s gardeners helped to prepare the 80sqm space for the planting of chillis, tomatoes, corianders, green onions and okras. The hotel also plans to make this a guest sustainability activity, where guests can help to care for the vegetables and harvest them when it is time.

Laguna Lăng Cô added 4-hectares of rice fields around the 3rd and 4th hole at Laguna Golf Lăng Cô in an effort to protect the traditional landscape of Central Vietnam as numerous rice fields are lost to urban development. While doing so, they adopted a buffalo family to assist with the cultivation and maintenance of the fields. This will also provide an authentic Vietnamese golf experience that can be enjoyed by all golfers.
The Buffalo family includes Tu Phat (Papa Buffalo), Chi Chi (Mommy Buffalo) and Bao (Baby Buffalo). We hope you’ll get to meet them during your next visit to Laguna Lăng Cô.
