|Centara Karon Resort Phuket involves submitting a year’s worth of operational data to EarthCheck, and this is in turn compared with industry data collected from more than 1200 organizations in over 65 countries.
By taking such a scientific approach to measuring the effectiveness of their sustainability practices, Centara Karon Resort Phuket has been able to identify where they were out-performing others and where room for improvement remained. Centara Karon Resort Phuket has recently achieved prestigious Earthcheck Bronze Status.
During the process, Centara Karon Resort Phuket was also required to submit a year's worth of operational data which was benchmarked against industry Best Practice. The data was then measured against a number of key indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production, and community commitment. For economies reliant on travel and tourism, EarthCheck’s benchmarking data provides the only historical record of the global environmental impacts of the industry over the past 12 years. More importantly, it rates the effectiveness of industry efforts to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) and conserve natural resources at a project-by-project level.
In order to achieve this award, the key is to accelerate staff awareness and everyone’s involvement for their specific green actions in the daily operations of each operations area. With this great achievement for Benchmarking, Centara Karon Resort Phuket will continue to strengthen its commitment to environmental and social issues in an effective, efficient and sustainable way.
