The Chedi Resorts Pioneer Luxury and Sustainability for Purposeful Travel
July 04, 2023
Known for creating elegant hotels and resorts around the world, GHM has introduced several impressive initiatives aimed at reducing their ecological footprint.
With a focus on environmental stewardship, The Chedi resorts across the globe are committed to reducing their ecological footprint while providing discerning travellers with unforgettable experiences.
GHM’s commitment to sustainability is evident through their 100% plastic-free policy, transitioning to alternatives such as biodegradable bags and glass bottles.
Zero-waste policies, including recycling plastic packaging and monitoring food waste, water, and energy consumption with new fixtures and motion sensors, as well as collaborating with local communities and eco-friendly local suppliers.
Tommy Lai, GHM’s CEO, believes that sustainability goes beyond green initiatives and includes creating jobs and training locals in the communities where they operate.
Each Chedi resort takes unique steps to implement sustainability measures.
For example, The Chedi Al Bait, operates a portable water filtration plant while recycling waste with a local contractor, and the Chedi Andermatt collaborates with initiatives like KITRO and SapoCycle to reduce waste.
GHM's plans include expanding into Saudi Arabia, Asia, and Europe, while maintaining its commitment to sustainable luxury hospitality.
