Since we turned an abandoned tin mine into the verdant site of our flagship Banyan Tree Phuket years ago, we have made sustainability our core value. Our dedicated labs in the Maldives and Bintan support conservation through research.
As a socially responsible business, Banyan Tree conducts environmental projects guided by a strategy of identified key issues (climate change, land use change, increasing human population and invasive species), that protect local habitats and species. These projects contribute towards our conservation, restoration and education programmes, with outputs shared to benefit local management and understanding.
We also hope to inspire a sense of environmental stewardship among guests. Simply by staying at our resorts, guests can contribute to supporting social and environmental efforts in the region and globally. Hotel efforts span the spectrum from passive to active support, in the hope of inspiring guests to become fully engaged in sustainability. For example, they can join our Marine Life Conservation Programme and take part in activities like coral clean-ups. They can also participate in research by becoming our Citizen Scientists.
