Discover The Apurva Kempinski Bali’s ‘Path to Sustainable Growth’ in This Exclusive Event

Taking place on Wednesday, 26 June 2024, guests are invited to a special event held by The Apurva Kempsinki Bali, ‘Path to Sustainable Growth’, aimed at bringing to light the steps taken to become the first GSTC Certified hotel in Indonesia. Featuring partners, consultants and speakers from the resort’s own team, the Nusa Dua resort invites industry friends, sustainability enthusiasts and guests to take part in this shared learning sharing forum.

The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC)  manages global standards for sustainable travel and tourism. The council has created international standards for sustainable certification in the industry. Their criteria includes four pillars — Sustainable management; Socioeconomic impacts; Cultural impacts; and Environmental impacts — setting out challenging but holistic targets that companies must meet to be official certified.

In April 2024, The Apurva Kempinski Bali officially announced achieving GSTC Certification, becoming the first hotel in Indonesia to receive this level of achievement. This has been a long path for the resort, who over the last few years have been continuously working on specific benchmarks across the sustainability spectrum to ensure that not only are they providing a luxury hospitality experience, but doing so in an ethical, inclusive and environmentally-friendly manner.

Having successfully walked the path, the resort invites other stakeholders to learn from their trials, understanding that collective success in this field is required to ensure that Bali’s, and indeed Indonesia’s, tourism landscape achieves positive longterm impacts. Curious guests, island industry leaders, partners in sustainable practices are invited to join this event, during which the resort will unveil their many collaborations with sustainable partners, calling for a united front in what is a real joint effort.
