Ensuring their brand’s practices are environmentally responsible and sustainable, Grand Hyatt Bali has implemented a sustainability framework in their daily operations; including food waste management, supply chain sustainability, and the reduction of energy and water consumption.
To care for people so they can be the best version of themselves is part of Grand Hyatt Bali’s vision, and the green initiatives aim to ensure their practice to align with the said vision. The resort is currently working on waste management, composting and eco-enzyme making. The aim of the programme is to produce their own organic compost from greeneries (grass and fallen leaves) and food waste.
Grand Hyatt Bali’s waste management programme has been incorporated into the daily operations of in-hotel departments by segregating the waste into three different vessels in a dedicated area. Meanwhile, the inorganic waste – such as plastic, glass bottles, cans, paper and cardboards – are being transferred to a third party to be processed or repurposed responsibly. In conjunction with this, Grand Hyatt Bali is also advancing the best practice of in-house eco-enzyme making. This method uses the fermentation process and transforms organic waste, like vegetable and fruit waste, into water that can be used for watering the plants. By extension, it also aims to support the local government’s efforts to solve Bali’s landfill issue.
Taking their green initiative to the culinary aspects, Grand Hyatt Bali is currently working together with local suppliers, supporting options such as organic or antibiotic-free, and identifying options with a low environmental impact to give healthy food alternatives for their guests. The resort has been sourcing its seafood from small business enterprises in order to support the local economy, while helping reduce emissions and carbon footprint. In addition, Grand Hyatt Bali sources some vegetables, herbs and spices from its own backyard, at the Chef’s Garden – adjacent to Garden Café, the all-day dining restaurant.
Grand Hyatt Bali is also participating in Bali Hotel Association’s Sustainable Food Festival, slotted for 27 September until 16 October 2021. With more than 25 five-star hotels in Bali participating, the food festival will see a curated menu made of locally and responsibly sourced ingredients, as well as fun programmes and educational activities related to sustainability efforts.
For future programmes, Grand Hyatt Bali will focus on building solar panels and improving the environment, including producing organic pesticides to terminate white insects and making their own organic pet food pellets to feed the resident ducks and fish by processing food waste. In addition, the resort will also collaborate with other foundations and parties to support the local community’s sustainability efforts.
