Giving BackSince its first resort opened in Banyan Tree Phuket in 1994, Banyan Tree has continually sought to embrace the environment and empower people. The philosophy aims to drive the company’s triple bottom line (economy, society and environment) and helps generate the company’ sustainable development by assisting those around us.
To formalise and integrate its corporate social responsibility efforts, the Green Imperative Fund (GIF) was established in 2002. At all Banyan Tree and Angsana properties, the Fund provides critical financial support to worthy environmental action and community based projects, such as the Turtle Head Start and Coral Protection and Growth programmes. To give back to the communities supporting its resorts, Banyan Tree conducts regular educational and health enrichment initiatives, and also provides scholarships for primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of education for the underprivileged.
