“The proper use of science is not to conquer nature but to live in it.”
Tourism often depends on natural heritage, areas of aesthetic beauty and high biodiversity. Tourism should therefore encourage stewardship, the responsibility to safeguard the environment and improve resilience in the face of unprecedented global change.
Banyan Tree’s efforts connect with the issue of global climate action by conserving resources through efficient operations, with external assurance by EarthCheck, the most scientifically rigorous benchmarking certification within the travel and tourism industry.
A science based approach to the conservation of sensitive ecosystems and threatened species supports positive action and engagement of our associates, guests and community members, connecting people to destinations and driving stewardship.
