 Marriott Bonvoy Hotels and Resorts (‘Marriott Bonvoy’) is broadening and refocusing its own sustainability strategies in a variety of ways. In addition to integrating sustainability across their value chain and lowering climate-related risk, Marriott Bonvoy is working to reduce their environmental impact, construct and operate sustainable hotels, and source responsibly. 

Marriott Bonvoy is embarking on a sustainability journey with a pledge to implement eco-conscious initiatives that are focused on preserving the planet for future generations. A variety of green tourism initiatives have been implemented, such as minimising environmental impact by managing water and energy use sustainably, cutting back on waste and carbon emissions, and utilising more renewable energy sources. Innovative technologies are also used by Marriott Bonvoy to plan, implement, track and communicate their responsible operations to reduce risk related to the climate, which benefits both their operations and the communities in which they operate. 

In actively reducing environmental impact, Marriott Bonvoy is also joining forces with associates, hotel owners, franchises, brands, suppliers, business partners and guests by constructing and operating sustainable hotels. Through emphasising on sustainable, responsible and local sourcing, Marriott Bonvoy hopes to minimise the detrimental effects of their business activities on the environment and society. The implementation of these green practices not only helps the hotels in a social sense, but also ultimately helps to attract a whole demographic of eco travellers looking to minimise their environmental impact while travelling. 

“At Marriott, we are dedicated to promoting green tourism at the property and industry levels because we firmly believe that travel can be a force for good. A big part of green tourism is making sure tourists bring no environmental harm to the area they visit and also support the local community in the process. With this considered, Marriott Bonvoy plays a vital role in setting up viable operational practices as well as educating tourists on green behaviours,” said Rivero Delgado Ramos, Area Vice President, Malaysia, Singapore, and Maldives, Marriott International.

Green tourism practices and ethical hotel development that connect social, cultural and economic factors are vital for both the long-term preservation of culture and the socio-economic stability of the host community. The adoption of green tourism is anticipated to grow as it is driven by an increase in travel to unique destinations; a desire to see wildlife, coral reefs and unspoilt places, as well as an increase in attention to green tourism.

Here are some examples of how Marriott Bonvoy are implementing green initiatives in Malaysia: 

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa has partnered with BoomGrow, a tech company that transforms farming by producing 100% clean and nutritious greens. Through the collaboration, the resort advanced its sustainability strategy by establishing an on-site technology-driven Machine Farm, the first of its kind on the island and in the nation. The Machine Farm is equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive technology which can establish a traceable, hyper-local supply chain that allows the resort to monitor production in real-time and gives tourists a better understanding of how the greens are grown. 

The Machine Farm is also chartered in data analysis to regulate light, water, and energy inputs as well as the ability to withstand adverse climates and provides the flexibility to scale up production in response to demand. In addition, the partnership prioritises enhancing overall wellbeing and reducing environmental impact without sacrificing the food’s nutrition, freshness, or flavour. The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa strives to provide a farm-to-table experience using the greens nurtured from the Machine Farm in all of its food and beverage outlets.

The Westin Kuala Lumpur
Sustainability plays a vital role in ensuring guests have a wonderful experience at The Westin Kuala Lumpur. Hence, The Westin Kuala Lumpur is the first Marriott International property in Malaysia to replace plastic bottles with glass bottles. The initiative helps the hotel avoid discarding over 400,000 plastic bottles each year as the glass bottles are chemical-free, washable and reusable. The Westin Kuala Lumpur also practices a no plastic straws policy and only provides paper straws, which are made available upon guest’s request. Other than ‘Eat Well’ with The Westin Kuala Lumpur’s sustainably produced greens, The Westin Kuala Lumpur also partnered with EcoPure Waters and installed an excellent water filtration in order for the establishment to purify its own water to make it drinkable for guests. The Hotel takes pride in the positive environmental impact that its own in-house water purification system has made.

The St. Regis Langkawi
Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy™ offers guests the chance to develop close relationships with local communities and the environment during their visit through three distinct pillars: Environmental Protection, Community Engagement, and Marine Conservation. The St. Regis Langkawi recently announced a new curated experience called Mangrove Conservation program for guests who are looking for a more meaningful travel experience in Langkawi.

One of Malaysia’s richest mangrove communities can be found on Langkawi. However, the mangrove ecosystem in Langkawi is under threat from rising coastal development and other factors. This experience aims to educate visitors while bringing to light how crucial it is to preserve and grow the island’s mangrove forests. Following a hands-on planting of mangrove seeds, the experience includes an educational boat tour of the mangrove forests with a naturalist to see the variety of exotic plants and animals. The experience is available to guests daily, and reservations can be made through the concierge at the resort.

The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi
The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi presents the Sea Cucumber Reproduction Project as part of Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy™. Sea cucumbers have long been used medicinally by the people of Langkawi. Nevertheless, over-farming is negatively impacting the local marine ecology, leading to an increase in coral bleaching. Guests are welcomed to join the in-house marine biologist for a practical lesson on how to promote the longevity of unusual creatures while understanding how asexual reproduction directly boosts local sea cucumber populations in the Andaman Sea.

During the kayaking session in the open sea, guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the asexual method and releasing of mature sea cucumbers. Furthermore, young guests will better understand the significance of this marine animal and its ecosystem. The experience is complimentary for resort guests and available from 11:00AM to 12:00PM, from Friday to Sunday. To make a booking, guests may reach out to the in-house Marine Biologist, Mr. Fadzli Luqman, on the resort grounds.
