One of the most sustainable Maldives resorts Dusit Thani has proudly secured the esteemed Google Eco-Certification as a tribute to its exceptional commitment to sustainable tourism practices and proactive environmental conservation.

The Google Eco-Certification stands as a testament to Dusit Thani Maldives’ unyielding dedication to advancing eco-conscious hospitality and reducing the resort’s carbon footprint, all while delivering unrivaled guest experiences. This accomplishment underscores the resort’s persistent pursuit of harmonizing luxury, nature, and responsible tourism.

Mr. Reinhold Johann, General Manager at Dusit Thani Maldives, expressed his gratitude, stating, “The Google Eco-Certification is a profound honor for Dusit Thani Maldives, reflecting our unwavering pledge to preserving the environment and fostering responsible travel. We firmly believe that luxury and sustainability can seamlessly coexist, and this recognition propels us to innovate further and lead the charge in sustainable tourism both in the Maldives and on a global scale.”

Dusit Thani Maldives has implemented a variety of initiatives aimed at diminishing its ecological impact and nurturing the local ecosystem, including:

Energy Efficiency: The resort has invested substantially in energy-efficient technologies and systems, such as solar panels and LED lighting, resulting in a noteworthy reduction in energy consumption.

Water Conservation: Employing advanced water management techniques, Dusit Thani Maldives has successfully minimized water usage through strategies like desalination processes and the incorporation of water-saving fixtures.

Marine Conservation: The resort actively participates in marine conservation endeavors, including coral propagation initiatives and routine reef clean-ups, with a primary focus on safeguarding and rejuvenating the delicate marine ecosystem of the Maldives.

Community Engagement: Collaborating closely with local communities, Dusit Thani Maldives spearheads educational and sustainability projects, instilling a sense of responsibility towards nature and bolstering the livelihoods of nearby residents.

Waste Management: With a robust emphasis on waste reduction, recycling, and environmentally-conscious waste disposal methods, the resort takes deliberate actions to prevent the contamination of both land and oceans.

The Google Eco-Certification serves as a distinct emblem of Dusit Thani Maldives’ resolute commitment to ecologically sound operations. Through the attainment of this esteemed certification, the resort aspires to inspire other participants within the hospitality sector to embrace sustainable practices and actively contribute to the preservation of our planet.

In the year 2022, Dusit Hotels and Resorts solidified its position as the pioneering hotel chain in Thailand to procure 100% organic jasmine rice across all its properties within the nation. This sourcing is achieved through direct purchases from small-scale farms in northeastern Thailand, which not only furnishes nutritional benefits to patrons and personnel but also generates a sustainable income stream for the supported communities. Furthermore, the company initiated the procurement of cage-free eggs for six of its hotels, with plans to extend similar projects as part of its ongoing enhancement of supply chain management.
