The Spas at Mandarin Oriental (multiple locations) have partnered with the Green Spa Network (GSN) to make sustainability among group properties more easily accessible and more widely discussed.

The Green Spa Network, a non-profit dedicated to bringing sustainability to the forefront of the spa and wellness industries, created the Sustainability Assessment Tool (SAT) as a resource to allow individual member spas to evaluate and better organize their most effective green efforts. The Mandarin Oriental Group has partnered with GSN to create a Group Sustainability Assessment, which will adapt the SAT for use in global, multi-property hotel brands.

“Mandarin Oriental is the first global hotel brand to enlist all of its properties into the Green Spa Network, and the first brand to implement the Group Sustainability Assessment,” says Jeremy McCarthy, Mandarin Oriental’s group director of spa. “The insights that will be revealed will help us to fulfill our goal to act responsibly for a sustainable future and bring a special focus to the contribution from our Spa division to Mandarin Oriental’s own goals for sustainability and corporate responsibility. We are delighted to embrace this initiative, to ensure that our Group's spas are advancing sustainability in our industry and in our communities.”

Once developed, the Group Sustainability Assessment will be made available to other hotel brands within the industry, as Mandarin Oriental will continue to work with GSN to encourage a greater awareness of sustainability within the industry and promote the adoption of the assessment by other group brands within the GSN.
