Mount Lavinia Hotel (MLH) has been successfully benchmarked with a Silver Award in Earth accounting by the Earthcheck organisation for their green programme certification.
MLH over the past year has embedded sustainability into the way they do business. “We have been working tirelessly in this area and felt it important, to those involved internally, as well as all our stakeholders, communities and business partners to seek independent, external recognition of our efforts and we are delighted to have been awarded Silver Benchmarking in April 2011 after a year of Bronze award winners,” said Anura Dewapura, General Manager Mount Lavinia Hotel.
MLH has introduced many innovative ways in which host communities, team members and guests are being educated about the benefits of treading lightly on the planet.
“We understand sustainability requires a long term view from our business, a long term view that takes into consideration the needs of future generations today,” added Dewapura. “By joining Earthcheck, MLH is simply saying we are part of a global tourism industry, we are serious about sustainability and we are taking local action on many global issues.”
