Sustainable Tourism leads to Sustainable Development

Sustainable Tourism is defined as tourism attempting to have a low impact on the environment and local culture, and helping to generate future employment for local people. The aim of sustainable tourism is to ensure that development brings a positive experience for local people, tourism companies and the tourists themselves.

It is high time to adopt sustainable practices which has become a necessity rather than a choice for the Tourism Industry of our country, especially after what the global economic downturn has taught us by visibly demonstrating how drastically the tourism industry can be affected with any negative alteration in the economic, environmental or social scenarios occurring worldwide. The sustainable practices into travel, tourism and hospitality sector will not only help to remain competitive in the tourism market, but also to achieve the much needed harmony between the industry, the host community and the natural and manmade attractions that together makes a tourism destination.

Many hotels are taking the lead and are actually demonstrating the power of adopting sustainable practices through various ways. They have shared their success story with us - 

Meridien Mahabaleshwar Resort & Spa hotel

Le Meridien Mahabaleshwar Resort & Spa hotel located in 27 acres of dense forest area with 7763 no. of trees. The hotel site retains the greenery with 7 acres landscaping development and that are taken care by a squad of 20 gardeners. A single tree will absorb one ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime, shade provided by trees also reduces our air conditioning unit’s consumption as the temperature is low. Energy-saving light bulbs last around ten times longer than ordinary light bulbs- over 10,000 hours and covered 60 % with the LED lightings.

We have In-house dry garbage segregation system with its recycling process work along with in-house organic waste converters machine which are converted the kitchen food waste into the manure which we are using for our in house tree plantation. In-house Effluent treatment and sewage treatment plant with bio-logical process in place and 0 discharge of the waste water from the property. Storm water management are constructed with the rain water catchment recharge system to include recharge our open wells and harvesting system are in place which we are using rain water ½ of the year. We are doing Waste Water treatment in our Sewage treatment plant and the treated water used for our landscape irrigation by high-efficient irrigation technology. The VOC levels in all interior paints & coatings, anti-corrosive & anti-rust paints, clear wood finishes, floor coatings, stains & primers do not exceed the VOC limits, the materials used are eco –friendly. We are using the low flow water aerators for our guest areas as well as back of the house wash rooms which are reduction in the consumption of day to day water use.

The Roseate, New Delhi

We have our own organic farm where our vegetables are grown and used for dishes at Kiyan (our all day dining restaurant). The hotel have more than a 100 trees and plants that has been uncut and present within the hotel premises even before the hotel was built. We even have recycled and harvest rain water and use solar energy as well.

Minor Hotels

In Africa, Elewana properties work with the local communities to directly protect massive areas of habitat, extending already huge National Parks for the wildlife - model we are moving to Cambodia for our joint venture Cardamom Tented Camp on a 180 that we have been protecting for the past five years.

In Maldives, Hostilic approach to Reef Protection, relying in the expertise of Coral Reef, exemplifies our approach: not only protecting the area to which our guests have access in order to maintain its beauty and protect a tourism asset but also involving the local community in protection to have an income, education to ensure the kids understand what’s at stake and also making methodologies publicly available to allow other companies in similar situations to replicate and further develop the work thereby protecting ever greater areas of the planet.

Four Points by Sheraton Hotel - Bangkok

The Hotel Meeting packages are supporting a healthier planet, this will also help you meet your sustainability goals by supporting in the below ways:

We are using whiteboards instead of flipcharts. Environmentally friendly non-paper suppliers or a smaller selections if notepaper on a station instead of individual note pads. Non-paper resources such as LED signage in front of meeting rooms. We don’t use paper coasters on table. We turn off the air conditioning during lunch break of the staff. We have eco friendly alternatives to conventional bottled water along with filtered water station at the back of the room instead of water bottles.

Conclusion - Enjoy your travel but respect the environment; many understood that Sustainable Tourism leads to Sustainable Development. In this way Hoteliers and Resorts pledged to contribute locally and work on with a purpose to promote more sustainable development.
