Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok
Bangkok, 12 June 2023 – In an important milestone, Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok has achieved EarthCheck Certified Silver through EarthCheck, the world’s leading business advisory group specialising in sustainability and destination management for the travel and tourism industry.
“Sindhorn Kempinski is at the centre of a sustainable, eco-friendly community, advocating for best practices to improve the environment in Bangkok and beyond, while excelling in providing superb guest experiences,” stated Thaddaeus Weiss, Hotel Manager of Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. “The EarthCheck Certified Silver confirms our mission and achievements in environmentally responsible practices.”
To avoid catastrophic climate change, the world needs to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees centigrade above pre-industrial levels. Today, we are already at 1.1 °C and feeling the effects, meaning that the window for achieving our target and avoiding the most catastrophic impacts of climate change is rapidly closing. The very environmental values and cultural assets that attract visitors to destinations need to be protected and responsibly managed. The tourism industry and its operators are key to creating this change.
Stewart Moore, CEO and Founder of EarthCheck, said that Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok has taken a significant leadership position in sustainability.
Mr. Moore said, “I would like to congratulate whole team at Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok on their achievement. Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is a valued member of a global group of tourism operators who dare to make a difference.”
By working with EarthCheck, Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok has joined other industry leaders who are taking meaningful steps towards resolving some of the very real issues that face the planet.
