Responsibility

[Environmental management practice]
Since 2002, our Green Project has been established with the environmental and social sustainability procedure, consisting of 7 principles as follows:-
(1) Animal and plant care;
(2) Waste management & minimization;
(3) Energy management & conservation;
(4) Water & wastewater management;
(5) Air pollution reduction, including greenhouse gases, and noise pollution reduction;
(6) Reduction of chemical use; and
(7) Raising sustainability awareness among stakeholders, i.e. staff, guest, local community, supplier.

To deploy those 7 principles to day-to-day operation, they have been defined in the operational practice of each department according to their job function, developed as standard operating procedures and included in company rule as reference for all staff. Communication of those principles through HR acknowledgement program, new staff orientation and refreshment training is routinely conducted as well as posting on board at public areas. The activity to raise environmental awareness from staff is also routinely conducted, such as monthly waste segregation, beach cleaning, etc.

[Social Contribution]
We do participate the local activity if we have chance to do especially for environmental awareness raising, such as beach cleaning beside hotel’s property, Children Day activity to provide the educational game and material about environmental stuffs, being the mentor for local primary school for waste segregation, etc. Also, we have supported the annual scholarship to local secondary schools Koh Samui school and Theeparaj for the students who have the good record but outreach for over 20 years.

We hire local employee as the major portion. Approximately 20% of our employee is Samui people and 40% has their home town onshore in the region. The local people is the first consideration in our hiring process.

Business Case

Apart from the impression of our service, the guest also loves our lush atmosphere and our environmental management practice. Over 60% of our guest is repeating guest. We also have green booking from the new guest who knows us from the website and reviews and select us because of our environmental caring practice and becomes the repeating guest then.

In financial and economical view, the environmental management practice not only help to improve and maintain the marketability, but also help to reduce operational cost, such as use/consume as necessary, eliminate the use of extravagant material which will become waste. As we include the concept of reduce/reuse/recycle since designing stage, and selection and sourcing of equipment and raw materials, we can reduce consuming resources and generating wastes from our service, of course. The energy saving device and water saving equipment are selected to be installed in our property. The reusable/washable stuff is used and no extravagant material are served, such as use cloth napkin, use bulk ceramic ware to serve sugar at the restaurant (no single packet served), no paper doily set up on table which will be waste once the guests finish their meal, use bulk refillable container for room amenities (no disposable toiletries), etc. We also make compost from food waste and scrap from plant trimming from garden for using in our organic garden and use treated wastewater from our wastewater treatment unit for watering in the garden.
