  • Sustainability Program Implementation

  • Sustainability Performance Assessment

In our ongoing partnership with Destination Spa Management (DSM), we have been developing their internal Sustainability Program, Treading Gently which covers all aspects of sustainability from energy conservation to sustainable food and healthy building materials. Today, we are very proud to have implemented this program to one of their properties. Svarga Loka is a wellness destination resort located in Bali which offers luxury accommodation amid nature. As a wellness consultancy and hospitality management company, DSM was desirous to offer a hotel facility in line with the health, wellbeing and comfort statement of their services and products. In this objective, we've conducted an assessment of the hotel’s current operations, buildings, systems and proposed a set of measures to improve the overall environmental performance and reach the desired sustainability targets. We are now in the process of implementing them gradually.

“Armelle helped to start, shape and build our unique sustainability programme, Treading Gently. Armelle guided us through the various options and once we were all in agreement on the most important aspects she built presentation materials to help us to communicate our standards to clients. This was invaluable for DSM, Armelle took charge of the work and presented it bit by bit making sure we were fully aware of the process and journey. We are really enjoying working with Armelle and will continue to use her services as more projects become live."

—  Joy Menzies, Managing Director at DSM
