20140207-0147_m“Our Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket has implemented a long-term sustainability management system that is suitable to its reality and scale, and that considers environmental, social cultural, quality, health and safety issues,” said General Manager Hansruedi Frutiger.

Located in one of the world`s most popular holiday destinations, this luxury spa resort impresses with maintaining a high level of service and Green Globe credentials. Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket identifies and promotes sustainable strategies, and recently earned Green Globe re-certification.

The resort`s best practices reflect Movenpick`s corporate green philosophy, which focuses on the unity of economic, social, and environmental well-being. This commitment to the land and quality of life is expressed in the property`s integrated, eco-friendly building operations. Numerous standards, procedures and campaigns for reducing energy use and pollution have been established. This includes power efficient lighting, measures to reduce fresh water consumption and modern waste management systems.

“We are committed today to do the right thing for tomorrow,” explains Hansruedi Frutiger. “We care for the local community, a better future and the global environment, and we do believe that people want to be part of a solution and want to contribute to positive changes and a promising future. To assist us with our endeavors and activities in supporting our community, we encourage our guests to participate in donating US$ 1 per stay to our Community Support Fund. Our contributions will go to support the people in need, such as the underprivileged children from the `Life Home Project` or the `Phuket Has Been Good to Us` foundation, the `Phuket House of Aged` and various disaster funds.”

The Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach is deeply immersed with the local community, hosting a variety of charitable projects, geared towards the environment, health, and education. As part of the resort`s CSR activities, staff members visit the elderly at Baan Pah klok Elderly Home Care & Social Welfare Development Center, invite disadvantaged children to educational seminars held at the property, and donate food, clothes, and daily necessities to the homeless.

In collaboration with the Karon Municipality, the Movenpick team organizes beach cleaning days, promoting environmental preservation, on a regular basis. Last year, the activities included the release of 199 baby sea turtles and 199 baby lobsters to the Andaman Sea.
