Mandarin Oriental spas ally with Green Spa Network
The Spas at Mandarin Oriental partners with Green Spa Network
The Spas at Mandarin Oriental has partnered with non-profit association Green Spa Network (GSN) to create a “Group Sustainability Assessment,” a resource that enables member spas to evaluate and better organise more effective greening efforts for the hotel group's network of spas. “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 Mandarin Oriental’s group director of spa Jeremy McCarthy.“The insights that will be revealed will help us to fulfill our goal to act responsibly for a sustainable future and bring a special focus to the contribution from our Spa division to Mandarin Oriental’s own goals for sustainability and corporate responsibility. We are delighted to embrace this initiative, to ensure that our Group's spas are advancing sustainability in our industry and in our communities,” he added.
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 for a more sustainable future for the spa industry.
Within the MENA region, Mandarin Oriental has properties in Marrakesh and Bodrum and will be opening its Doha property in late 2017. Back in 2014, the group also announced that it would be gaining a foothold in Dubai whilst in 2015, it revealed plans to manage a hotel and branded residences in Beirut, due to open in 2018.
