The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has 34 luxury hotels in 24 countries. In 2012, it set out to make a lasting impact — sustainability-wise. The company has been striving to reduce its environmental footprint by setting bold energy, emissions, waste, and water targets. Its goal has been to reduce its overall footprint by 20–25% across these targets.
“We have faced some challenges related to waste management, as waste treatment and recycling capabilities vary between countries,” says the company’s 2020 Sustainability Report. “Water consumption has also been a challenging area in which we made considerable progress but again have been somewhat short of the original target, due to the addition of a number of water intense resort properties in recent years.”
