“Centara Hotels & Resorts has environmental management and conservation as one of its highest priorities across our entire range of activities,” says David R Good, vice president for operations.

“We are delighted that our Karon Resort property has won such a high accolade, as every member of our staff at the resort makes an individual contribution.

“Their enthusiasm is shared by many of our guests, who take an active part in the environment-related events and promotions that are organised at the resort.”

Using a science-based approach, EarthCheck helps many of the world’s leading travel and tourism companies address risk, deliver bottom line efficiencies, maximise guest experience and minimise their environmental footprints.
