With 22 global destinations in its portfolio, the Group is deeply mindful of its ecological footprint and is committed to responsible environmental practices. Green Committees comprising representatives from the facilities, operations, procurement, IT and finance teams have been formed at our hotels to champion and enhance the Group’s sustainability efforts.
In North America, Pan Pacific Seattle’s PanEarth sustainability programme continues to lead our conservation efforts. Its zero-impact policy offers guests the option of carbon-neutral stays by purchasing credits for the generation of clean wind energy. The hotel matches, dollar-for-dollar, all guest donations towards renewable energy credits, with 10% of total proceeds going to beneficiaries at Food Lifeline, a local non-profit organisation for hunger relief.
The benefits resulting from the PanEarth sustainability programme have been immense. While setting benchmarks for environmental efforts, PanEarth also works closely with several community organisations and contributes to social causes ranging from hunger relief and muscular dystrophy, to autism and AIDS. Moreover, it supports programmes for the elderly and disadvantaged children through fund-raising and volunteer activities. Our ambition is to globalise PanEarth and to spread its initiatives to our other hotels, resorts and services suites worldwide.
PARKROYAL on Pickering
The highly anticipated PARKROYAL on Pickering, which opened in 2013, highlights the Group’s efforts in sustainability. The development incorporates environmentally sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting, automatic sensors to regulate energy and water usage, and solar cells for powering landscape lighting. Lush foliage is a prominent feature, with impressive sky gardens, green walls, waterfalls and a wide variety of plants adding to the biodiversity of its tropical hotel-in-a-garden concept.
Prior to being operational, PARKROYAL on Pickering was awarded a Green Mark Platinum certification – the highest in its category from Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority. With award-winning architects WOHA behind it, the development has set new benchmarks for the amount of landscaping and greenery created in a high-density urban environment.
PARKROYAL on Pickering also bagged the Solar Pioneer Award – a recognition conferred by the Energy Innovation Programme Office, which is led by Singapore’s Economic Development Board and Energy Market Authority. In its third year, the Solar Pioneer Award honours pioneering solar installations in Singapore that are innovative in system design, size and installation techniques. Notably, the hotel was commended for its energy-efficient air-conditioning system, use of sustainable LED lighting, and high-performance laminated double-glazed low-E glass that cuts out exterior heat and noise.
Through charitable missions, volunteer work and donation drives, Pan Pacific Hotels Group and its hotels put our values into practice by encouraging caring and sharing within the wider community, instilling greater compassion towards the plight of society’s less fortunate.
The Group has undertaken numerous initiatives focused on youth development, as well as families and children – one of which is its Youth Career Development Programme (YCDP). Launched in Thailand in cooperation with United Nations Children's Fund, the YCDP is designed to provide innovative educational and vocational training to disadvantaged youths who may otherwise be engulfed in crime, prostitution, drugs, exploitation, abuse, and deprivation.
Over the past decade, the programme has successfully facilitated access to training and employment opportunities in the hospitality industry to hundreds of young men and women from underprivileged families – beneficiaries of the Rajaprajanukrow Foundation – mainly from the Northern and Northeastern provinces of Thailand.
