Centara Kata Resort Phuket: Located on the holiday island of Phuket. The resort is a modern resort style hotel, enjoying a picturesque location surrounded by panoramic views of the neighbouring hills and vegetation, and consists of a cluster of several buildings designed in a unique combination of traditional Thai and contemporary style architecture.
The resort boasts three pool areas and sundecks for soaking up Phuket’s glorious sunshine. These include one free form swimming pool with crystal clear water and a sparkling jacuzzi, or the landscaped Emerald pool, which is the heart of Centara Kata Resort Phuket, providing jacuzzi, aqua beds, pool bar and waterslide for our young guests.
Centara Kata Resort Phuket has involved 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 Kata Phuket has been able to identify where they were out-performing others and where room for improvement remained. Centara Kata Phuket has recently achieved prestigious Earthcheck Bronze Status.
During the process, Centara Kata 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 Kata Phuket will continue to strengthen its commitment to environmental and social issues in an effective, efficient and sustainable way.
