All nine Aitken Spence Hotels and Heritance Hotels in Sri Lanka have achieved Green Globe Benchmarked status under the globally recognised Green Globe Benchmarking programme. Green Globe is the international benchmarking and certification programme for the travel industry based on the agenda ‘21 principles for sustainable development’ endorsed by 182 Heads of State at the United Nations Rio De Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992. The aim of the programme is to assist international organisations to attain sustainability by providing a certification system that responds directly to the major environmental problems facing the planet, including climate change, waste reduction and non-renewable resource management.

“Receiving this accolade shows our strengthened commitment towards the individual environments in which we operate in and our responsiveness towards the crisis faced with regards to the depletion of natural resources,” stated Ravi De Silva, Aitken Spence Hotels Environmental Consultant.
