Alila encourages local communities and guests to think differently about waste and the impact it has on the environment. Initiatives include incentivizing waste collection for local village residents, and primary school kids will be encouraged to bring their waste to school, in return Alila will contribute to the school fund.
Alila will be investing in an Integrated Sustainable Resource Recovery Facility (iSuRRF) and laboratory where all waste will be transformed into value and diverted through a series of simple yet proven technical, biological and engineering systems. A full composting system will be implemented for all organic waste in each hotel. A permaculture organic garden will also be introduced to help develop sustainable and self-sufficient agricultural ecosystems. For instance, the technology will convert otherwise uneconomic waste plastics like wraps and films into a light green crude oil that will be distilled down to diesel, kerosene, gasoline for reuse in the hotels.
Alila is recognised as a leader in sustainable tourism – firmly respecting and preserving the way of life and traditions of local communities and believing that the environment, both natural and social, is critical to the sustainability of its business. All Alila properties in Bali are operated to Earth Check standards and subject to yearly audit.
