Trusted by over 70 countries, EarthCheck is an internationally recognized environmental management and certification program designed for the Travel and Tourism industry. It helps determine a company’s standard of environmental, social, and economic performance and requires compliance to internationally recognized standards.
In order for Dusit Thani Manila to gain EarthCheck Certified status, the five-star luxury hotel was required to submit a year’s worth of operational data to EarthCheck for Benchmarking purposes. This was then compared to the operational data submitted by similar organizations, before being rated against Baseline and Best Practice levels.
Dusit Thani Manila was also required to submit to independent, third party auditing, to verify the accuracy of their sustainability claims. Their policies require the use of energy-efficient lighting, the minimization of water consumption, recycling of solid waste products and use of recycled products whenever possible. This has resulted in a decrease in Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) for the hotel’s operations.
First awarded in 2011, Dusit Thani Manila continues to ensure that all its efforts navigate towards providing a holistic experience to all its guests, putting high level of importance to protecting and saving Mother Earth.
