MANILA, Philippines - For the fourth consecutive year, Dusit Thani Manila’s environmental and social sustainability efforts have been recognized by EarthCheck, earning the hotel the silver certification from the international tourism and environmental management advisory body.

The 537-room hotel has developed a unique and entirely sustainable system that incorporates environment-friendly measures with their world-class amenities and concessionaires.

Among EarthCheck’s globally recognized principles that Dusit Thani Manila has adapted are energy efficiency and conservation, management of fresh water resources, ecosystem conservation and management, management of social and cultural issues, wastewater and solid waste management, proper handling and storage of Earth-friendly and chemical substances, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Additionally, Dusit Thani Manila also focuses its efforts on corporate social responsibilities which include fostering self-empowerment among employees and consistently providing assistance to Operation Smile, a foundation that provides free reconstructive surgery to children with cleft palate and other facial deformities.

“We are very pleased that EarthCheck has once again recognized Dusit Thani Manila’s sustainability efforts. As a premier tourism and hospitality institution, we proudly take on the responsibility of promoting Earth-friendly practices without compromising the quality of our service,” said Dusit Thani Manila general manager Bruno Cristol. “In fact, we are soon opening The Pantry, a contemporary all-day dining restaurant that completely makes use of fresh, whole and locally sourced ingredients – proving that eco-sustainability and luxury can coexist.”

EarthCheck is the world’s leading scientific benchmarking certification and advisory group for travel and tourism.
