Saturday, 10 August 2013 12:17

Only in its 8th month of operation, Dusit Thani Maldives has achieved Silver Certification by EarthCheck, the leading sustainable certification organisation that sets benchmarks in the hospitality industry. Dusit Thani Maldives is the first resort to receive this distinction in the Baa Atoll, the Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

“Ever since Dusit Thani Maldives laid ground on the island of Mudhdhoo, the resort has invested in state-of-the-art engineering efficiency measures in an effort to provide green solutions in operating a luxury resort,” stated Mr. Desmond Hatton, general manager. “With a sustainable future always in the heart of our goal, our commitment is to continually do our part to enrich the community and environment in which we operate”, Mr. Hatton added. “Our colleagues are enthusiastic about our Silver certification and are passionate about contributing as we grow the scope of our sustainability policies year by year”.

The resort’s environmental footprint was assessed extensively by independent auditors against internationally recognised standards of best practice and will continue to do so every year. Earthcheck has measured the resort’s commitment to sustainable development and performance in ten key indicators such as water consumption and waste management.

The resort’s approach was favourably recognised by Earthcheck, and in particular commended energy solutions such as solar thermal heating and heat recovery pumps, and a steam powered laundry facility.
