Serving as a tool for sustainability reporting and based on the aim of continual improvement, this annual assessment of Caravelle Saigon was undertaken against EarthCheck benchmarking indicators and checklists which have been developed and carefully selected to track performance in key areas of environmental and social performance impact.
According to the results, along with cleaning products rating and water savings rating Caravelle was assessed as a regional leader. Potable water consumption was 525.2L/guest night, which was 3.5% lower than last year and 23.4% better than the Regional average. This is an outstanding achievement, reflecting the non-stop team effort in waste water recycling and other saving counter measures that have been implemented.
Considered as one of Vietnam’s leading eco-conscious hotels, in combination with positive commitments to create sustainability, on 5th June, some 100 associates of the Vietnam Environmental award 2015 and ASEAN Green Hotel award stage 2016-2018, biked the 15km route along Vo Van Kiet boulevard to support greater action on environmental issues on annual World Environment Day.
EarthCheck is the top benchmarking programme used by the travel and tourism industry. In 2015, the Hotel became the first ever property in Vietnam to be EarthCheck Gold certified for its sustainable practices, and the only one that will have the opportunity to sustain this prestigious achievement for the next five years.
