Bintan Lagoon Resort & Golf Club has been awarded the LEED Silver Certification for Existing Buildings, making it one of the first resorts in Southeast Asia to earn this prestigious certification by the US Green Building Council.

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is one of the most sought after green building certifications in the world. 

"We are ecstatic to be the first golf resort in Southeast Asia to become LEED Certified," said Moe Ibrahim, Bintan Lagoon Resort & Golf Club's President Director.  "It feels good to go green, literally ... Most people are unaware of the dangers they face when it comes to substandard cleaning supplies and pesticides. By going green, we have taken measures to positively impact the personal health of our guests. We've also managed to save money in the process."

The certification process, which took approximately 18 months, was made possible by the establishment of a dedicated Green Team at the resort. Bintan Lagoon established an independent power plant, water treatment facility, and has installed a state-of-the-art building automation system to meticulously carry out the resort's new, environmentally conscious operational policies.

"Going green does not need to be an expensive exercise," added Mr. Ibrahim. "Via the creativity of our team, we have managed to reduce water consumption by 15% and electricity consumption by a staggering 40%. Our investment will pay for itself many times over in the coming years."

Bintan Lagoon Resort has also added a significant number of bikes around the property so that guests can get around without leaving behind a carbon footprint.

"We have a responsibility to preserve the planet," said Mr. Ibrahim, "so that the natural, unspoiled beauty of Bintan can continue for many generations to come."
