One with Nature

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts bring you luxury that you deserve, without compromising our natural resources. We are committed to serving as good stewards of the environment. We ensure that every property respects local traditions and culture, restores natural habitats, conserves biodiversity and manages waste, water and energy.

Shangri-La mitigates impacts on the environment by ensuring that our day-to-day operations promote and implement responsible environmental practices and continual improvement.

The Group participates in the Carbon Disclosure Project with yearly submissions since 2011 to demonstrate the importance given by senior management to the risks and opportunities that climate change presents to the organisation. Many of its hotels are certified under ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems. Hotels also have the capacity to address local resource management issues through innovative solutions such as glass water bottling, rainwater harvesting, use of solar energy and the incorporation of composting and herb gardens to manage food waste.
