Mandarin Oriental has achieved GSTC-Committed status, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to sustainable tourism practices. The recognition is a testament to the Group’s adoption of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) Industry Criteria v3.0.

The ultra-luxury hospitality company says it has embraced the GSTC Industry Criteria, encompassing corporate offices and all managed branded properties worldwide. The attainment of GSTC-Committed status signifies Mandarin Oriental’s dedication to incorporating the GSTC Criteria into its policy, plan, and operations. The distinction ensures that the organisation adheres to global standards for sustainable tourism management.

Laurent Kleitman, CEO of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, remarked on the achievement: “This recognition reflects our commitment to sustainable practices. As a Group, we have developed a comprehensive plan to implement the GSTC Criteria, and we are proud to align ourselves with global standards for sustainable tourism.”

Randy Durband, GSTC CEO said “Mandarin Oriental is an international brand that recognises the value of applying the GSTC Criteria as global standards for sustainable tourism and hospitality across their geographic scope of operations internally and with their suppliers and stakeholders. That is the basis of ‘GSTC-Committed’, this status does not state or imply certification, but it provides a pathway in the sustainability journey for each of their properties to eventually indeed seek to gain certification,”

Mandarin Oriental’s Pledge to Sustainability: Pursuit of GSTC Certification

In tandem with gaining GSTC-Committed status, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has committed to implementing the GSTC Criteria across its entire organisation. Eleven Mandarin Oriental hotels were accredited with GSTC Certification in 2023. The Group will continue to actively pursue GSTC Certification this year, aligning each of its hotels with the highest social and environmental standards within the industry.

The Group utilises the GSTC-Recognised Greenview Portal as its sustainability management system, ensuring transparency and accountability in its sustainability initiatives.

Mandarin Oriental says it remains committed in its mission to creating exceptional guest experiences while contributing positively to the communities and environments in which it operates.
