Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has taken its leading position in sustainability one step further with the launch of Earth Lab.

From Vietnam to Portugal, Seychelles to Thailand, Six Senses is dedicated to focusing on sustainability engagement and education at each resort’s Earth Lab.

Earth Lab is a place where every Six Senses property showcases their sustainability efforts to reduce consumption, produce locally, and support communities and ecosystems. Guests are invited to visit Earth Lab to reconnect with the natural world and learn some simple life-hacks that will allow them to make a difference. The venue was named Earth to celebrate our home and source of all life, and Lab for laboratory, experimentation, innovation, and exploration.

Producing materials on site reduces transportation-related impacts, especially for products that must otherwise travel long distances to our locations. Six Senses has adopted a philosophy of Zero Waste.

Earth Lab embraces this concept by upcycling materials into new products. Work happening around the property or off-site is also communicated in Earth Lab, for example marine conservation work, forest restoration and community development.

“We are delighted to launch Earth Lab,” said Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas president Bernhard Bohnenberger. “Each facility represents the seriousness we place on sustainability and the importance of working locally and with nearby communities to tread lightly on the environment and respect Mother Nature. We track metrics on all Earth Lab activities undertaken and are keen to provide that data to our guests. A visit to Six Senses would not be complete without visiting Earth Lab. It’s a one-stop, fun place to learn, grow and explore our unique approach to developing and sustaining our people, our planet and wisely balancing profit.”
