Following the certification of Zannier Hotels Phum Baitang in April 2022, Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô has received the Green Globe certification, in recognition of the resort's commitment towards sustainable management, positive social and economic impacts, cultural heritage transmission and environment preservation.
A meaningful recognition
From its creation, Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô has been designed to limit its environmental footprint. The luxury beach resort, located away from the touristic paths in Central Vietnam, is committed to adopting sustainable practices to minimize its environmental impact and promote social responsibility. After two years of operations, Zannier Hotels is proud to announce that the resort has been certificated by Green Globe in February 2023.
The certification process is rigorous and requires businesses to meet strict criteria in areas such as waste management, energy efficiency, water conservation, and social and cultural sustainability. "We are delighted to have achieved Green Globe Certification and to be recognized for our commitment towards sustainability, especially in Vietnam where mass tourism has severely impacted most of the coastline" said Michael Wirz, General Manager of the resort.
Zannier Hotels has always been committed to environmental and social responsibility, and this certification is a testament to the group’s continuous efforts. Committed to continuing its efforts towards sustainability, an exhaustive sustainable management plan has been drafted, including ambitious objectives for the coming years, to achieve the Green Globe gold certification within 5 years.
