At Banyan Tree, sustainability and social responsibility are the core of our brand. In line with our motto of "Embracing the Environment, Empowering People", we are dedicated to being stewards of the environment, people, and culture wherever we operate.
Our buildings are designed using local architectural styles and materials, and we implement efficient energy and waste management systems. We also actively choose to work with partners who share our values and support our efforts to create a positive impact.
In addition to providing meaningful employment and training opportunities, we also protect the unique heritage of our destinations by celebrating local flavors, promoting indigenous wellness traditions, and supporting artisan crafts. Meanwhile, our Green Imperative Fund matches guest contributions to support the sustained livelihood and wellbeing of the broader community.
All of these efforts contribute to a "Stay for Good" experience at Banyan Tree.
We launched our annual Greater Good Grants in 2020, as the global health crisis raged around the world and negatively impacted environments and communities. The grants support innovative and impactful projects in countries where we operate, addressing important issues like biodiversity and conservation, resource use and waste management, climate change and resilience, education and empowerment, health and protection, and culture and livelihood.
This is just one of the ways we are working towards the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals for people and the planet.
