MLH now an EarthCheck Benchmarked Accommodation - Vacation Hotel

Mount Lavinia Hotel has passed the requirements to be recognised as an EarthCheck Benchmarked Accommodation - Vacation Hotel.

In addition to having a Sustainability Policy in place, eleven of the assessed EarthCheck indicators are at or above the Best practice level. From the benchmarking data provided, ten indicators, Energy Consumption, Greenhouse Gas Emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2), Potable Water Consumption, Water Savings Rating, Waste Sent to Landfill, Waste Recycling Rating, Community Contributions Rating, Paper Products Rating, Cleaning Products Rating and Pesticide Products Rating, are at or above the Best Practice level, which is a world-class achievement to be very highly commended.

Improvements in all the EarthCheck indicators will not only help the environment, but can also help reduce operational costs. Due to the positive commitment that Mount Lavinia Hotel has demonstrated to the environment, the assessors are confident that they can maintain their very high standards and remain a leader in environmental performance. In line with MLH environmental Policy this would enable the Mount Lavinia Hotel to continue to meet the benchmarking requirements of the EarthCheck program.

*The data has been compiled by Mount Lavinia Hotel in the prescribed manner, authorised by a senior executive of the company and submitted for an annual assessment.
