Alila Jakarta Achieves EarthCheck Gold Status

Alila Jakarta, the first new-build property in Alila Hotel and Resorts’ rapidly expanding portfolio, has achieved Gold Certification from EarthCheck.

The Gold level of certification is reserved for organizations that have demonstrated over a period of five years or more their commitment to their host communities and high standards of environmental management. To gain Gold Certification, the hotel was required to submit a year’s worth of operational data to EarthCheck for benchmarking against internationally recognized standards of best practice.

“This is the first time the hotel has achieved Gold Certification by Earth Check. Previously, Alila Jakarta achieved Silver Certification for five consecutive years since 2013. This provides our guests, stakeholders and business partners with certainty that our commitment to reducing energy and water consumption is actually taking place and making a positi ve difference”, said Sebastien Menesguen, General Manager of Alila Jakarta.

 From the outset, Alila Jakarta has put sustainability at the forefront, obtaining the highest level of accreditation from Earth Check for its Building Planning and Design Standard. Sensitive site planning, use of local building materials, and the incorporation of environmental, energy and resource-efficient systems are integral to its design.

 The hotel’s implementation of energy-efficient building management systems, low energy light fixtures, as well as environmental and natural landscaping with rooftop pools and gardens creates a green environment that contributes to the reduction of energy consumption.

Alila Jakarta’s Pioneer team is also looking at initiatives that encourage greater awareness and better waste management among local communities, such as incentivizing waste collection at the local school - including a plantation project, an annual ‘clean-up’ together program and supporting the Ant Charity Foundation.
