Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort announces its official certification as carbon-neutral

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort announces its official certification as carbon-neutral
September 16, 2020

Thailand’s Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort - a chic and sustainable retreat -has announced that it has been officially certified as a carbon-neutral hotel, further demonstrating its deep and lasting commitment to the environment.

Nestled in 70 acres of tropical gardens with an 800-metre-long stretch of white sandy beach, this resort has always been a haven of conservation. This is reflected not only by its pristine landscape, but also by its many eco-friendly amenities and activities, including its innovative Marine Discovery Centre.

Now, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has been rewarded for its environment efforts by the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO), which carried out a thorough assessment of the property’s operations and awarded it a Carbon Footprint for Organization (CFO) certificate. This confirms that the resort is completely efficient, having significantly reduced its carbon emissions and successfully offset the rest.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort was required to measure its emissions, including waste, fuel and electricity consumption in all areas of the property, to calculate the net total of CO2 it releases. This was then verified by the TGO, and following the independent assessment, the resort was recognised as being officially carbon-neutral.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort prides itself on its environmental ethos, and has woven sustainability into its entire operations. It has slashed its waste and emissions with smart solutions such as energy-efficient lighting, water management, recycling programmes, organic gardening, and plastic-free products.

The resort also acts as a guardian of the sea with a wide range of environmental programs, led by a resident marine biologist at its Marine Discovery Centre. The world’s oceans play a huge role in absorbing CO2, so resort-led initiatives such as mangrove planting, coral propagation, breeding and release programmes, and coastal clean-ups are vital in helping to combat climate change. This interactive facility also acts as an educational hub for the entire community, including local schools.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort General Manager, Chao Treenawong advises “Climate change is the biggest threat to our future, so it is our duty to fight back. At Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, we are rising to the challenge of protecting the planet. Through our Marine Discovery Centre we are playing a proactive role in saving our marine ecosystems and educating the next generation. Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface, so a healthy ocean means a healthy planet, and we will continue to work tirelessly to preserve it. There is still much more work to be done, but we are happy and grateful that our efforts have been recognised by the TGO.”

The TGO certificate is the latest in a series of environmental accolades achieved by Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort; in 2019 it was awarded “3 Leaves” by the Green Leaf Foundation, and it has also been accredited by the Thai Hotels Association as a “Plastic Free Resort”. Most recently, the resort received the “Green Leaf Certificate” for successfully promoting conservation awareness within the travel and tourism industry and met the requirements of Green Hotel Standard – Gold Level, certified by the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion from Thailand’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
