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
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.
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
