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.
