The Spas at Mandarin Oriental have partnered with the Green Spa Network (GSN), a non-profit association dedicated to the idea that ‘vital people can make a vital planet possible’.
GSN’s efforts over the past 10 years have brought key spa and wellness industry players together to make a difference for sustainability.
One of GSN’s primary achievements has been the creation of a “Sustainability Assessment Tool,” an important resource that has allowed their individual member spas to evaluate and better organize more effective greening efforts. Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is partnering with the Green Spa Network to create a “Group Sustainability Assessment,” which adapts their tool for use in global, multi-property hotel brands.
“Mandarin Oriental is the first global hotel brand to enlist all of its properties into the Green Spa Network, and the first brand to implement the Group Sustainability Assessment,” said Jeremy McCarthy, Mandarin Oriental’s Group Director of Spa.
The Group Sustainability Assessment will also be made available to other hotel brands within the industry, and Mandarin Oriental will be working with GSN to encourage greater awareness and adoption of the assessment and to unite with other global brands to create positive change towards a more sustainable future for the spa industry.
Through networking, education, and best practices developed with its membership of the nation’s most innovative green spas, GSN is a resource for vital people building a vital planet. Visit www.greenspanetwork.org
