Sustainability and social responsibility sit at the heart of the Banyan Tree brand. We are committed stewards of the natural environment, of people, and of culture. We strive to create a positive impact wherever we are. Our buildings flow from vernacular architectural styles and locally-sourced materials. We employ efficient energy and waste management systems. We maintain a supply chain of partners who share our values.
We provide meaningful employment, training and educational opportunities within our ranks and in our communities. We protect the unique heritage of our destinations by celebrating local flavours, advocating indigenous wellness traditions and championing artisan crafts.
In combination with our Green Imperative Fund, a donation-matching scheme for guest contributions, these efforts support a Stay for Good experience that allows us to contribute to the sustained livelihood and wellbeing of the wider community.
The ongoing global health crisis has adversely impacted lives around the world and compounded the effects of social injustice and the climate emergency. Our annual Greater Good Grants fund innovative and impactful local programmes that seek to drive meaningful change in the areas of biodiversity and conservation, resource use and waste management, climate change and resilience, education and empowerment, health and protection, and culture and livelihood. It is one of the many ways we are helping to meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for people and the planet. Read more about our campaign for greater good here.Find Out More
