Intercontinental Bali Supports Clean & Green Activity

May 6, 2014 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

unnamed (4)InterContinental Bali Resort continues to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to sustainable environmental awareness and socially conscious activities.

The resort is therefore delighted to reveal its recent initiative towards minimising its impact on the local surroundings to benefit the community of Jimbaran.

Every year, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day, an annual campaign, which is celebrated worldwide to raise awareness about the need to protect our beautiful planet. The concept is to inspire and empower communities from every corner of the globe to work togetherunnamed (5) by planting trees, cleaning up, fixing up and preserving their local environments. In conjunction with Earth Day this year, InterContinental Bali Resort and PT. Jimbaran Hijau supported approximately 2000 volunteers in the planting of 2014 trees.  The trees were planted all along Jalan Wanagiri Jimbaran, ending at Pura Tegal Wangi Jimbaran. This green activity – which took place on Saturday, 26th April 2014 – involved students and the local community, while the 2014 trees comprised selected indigenous species that need to be conserved. Intercontinental Resort Bali’s General Manager, Mr. Michel Chertouh said, “I am very proud of all of our volunteers, planting trees not only provides us with immediate benefits, it also leaves behind a green legacy for future generations to enjoy.”

InterContinental Bali Resort positively encourages the need to protect the environment and community in which it operates – and the fragile world in which we live – through a number of eco-friendly and social activities. The Resort’s current stance on ecological and social awareness is proving that everybody can be proactive in making our world a better place. This can be seen in the Intercontinental Hotel Group’s ‘Green Engage’ programme, which aims to achieve a 12% reduction, per occupied room, of water usage and the carbon footprint. The Resort’s positive approach towards environmentally-friendly practices and responsible tourism has been recognised accordingly through international certification from Earth Check, as well as the Green Planet Award by Kuoni Travel Ltd.
