Supporting Sustainable Development Goals

Our strategy for sustainable development is designed to leverage our knowledge, capability and expertise to ensure we have a positive impact wherever we set foot. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the United Nations serve as our blueprint to achieve a more sustainable future for all, and we are delighted to directly support 12 of them as follows.

Sustainable Food Production
We directly purchase organic rice and produce from local and small-scale food producers to encourage them to implement resilient agricultural practices.
Employee well-being
Good health and well-being can be core enablers of employee engagement and organizational performance. The regular activities we arrange help to create a positive work environment.
Education
Besides helping young people gain the skills they need to work, we also support the development of hospitality management at Dusit Thani College and Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School, and promote lifelong learning for all our staff.
Women and Children
We empower women in our workplace and provide equal opportunities for our staff. We also stand against the sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism.
Water
Our water intensity reduction target is designed to help limit the threat of water scarcity and ensure our properties use water efficiently.
Clean Energy
We aim to reduce our carbon footprint by integrating alternative energy into our business operations.
Economic Growth
In the pursuit of sustainable economic growth, we provide clear opportunities for career advancement and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace.
Responsible Consumption
We are committed to reducing our waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse. Creative approaches to combat food loss are also top of our agenda.
Greenhouse Gas Emission
Our holistic approach to managing our energy starts with raising awareness among our staff. We are now working on reducing our energy and GHG emissions (scope 1 and 2) to reduce our carbon footprint.
Oceans
We take proactive action to reduce marine pollution, including limiting the use of single-use plastics and efficiently managing wastewater to help protect marine life.
Biodiversity
We support the use of products from responsibly managed forests and take action to combat illegal wildlife products.
Collaboration
We collaborate with local and international organizations to apply our shared knowledge, expertise and experience to foster balanced economic, social and environmental development.
