EarthCheck
Banyan Tree is proud to partner with EarthCheck, the world’s leading environmental certification and benchmarking platform for the travel and tourism sector. Compliance to the EarthCheck program ensures that our properties meet the most stringent environmental practices:
  • The EarthCheck system from EC3 Global was selected as the external resource due to the reliability and thorough nature of its review as well as for its reliance upon the background research and expertise of the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre (STCRC). For more details about the EarthCheck methodology and approach, please visit www.earthcheck.org
  • By adhering to the EarthCheck program, Banyan Tree aims to implement comprehensive and rigorous quantitative evaluation of environmental and social performance against sector and region Baseline and Best Practice standards.
  • EarthCheck provides a framework to help increase operational efficiencies, maximise the impacts of Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives and minimise environmental footprints. “These are all things that are now expected of market leaders and verifiable proof is often required by many organisations prior to booking conferences and making group reservations.” -Mr Stewart Moore, CEO of EC3 Global
  • EarthCheck is used by travel and tourism organizations around the world, to validate and guide their sustainability initiatives. It is the largest environmental benchmarking, certification and management solution in use by this industry and the leading programme in-market. The EarthCheck programme was jointly developed by the Australian government funded Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre (STCRC) and Australian headquartered EC3 Global.
