The Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket has received the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Monitoring Award for 2008 in recognition of their consistent effort in management of the environment in and around the property.

EIA Monitoring Awards aim to encourage enterprises to be aware of their responsibility towards environmental impact, to support the enterprises in developing their EIA management and be a role model to others.

''Environmental management has long been a key policy for the resort and that all departments of the hotel ensure this is one of their main concerns since our hotel was opened in 1987. All our staff are required to be friendly with the environment, and we aim to ensure that this is taken forward to our guests through our various campaigns and programmes,'' said Mr. Peter Komposch, General Manager of Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket.

The hotel has implemented a number of campaigns over the years to raise awareness of environmental concerns for both staff and guests, such as the Love Tree Planting Ceremony conducted after wedding ceremonies, nature bike tours and the Water Day slogan contest.

The impact of development on the environment is something which Thailand are keen to control and any development with over 79 units must pass an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) before any planning permission is granted. The regulations also state that for every air conditioning unit between 12,000 and 24,000 BTU a tree must be planted to off-set carbon emmissions.

Investors keen to purchase within an environmentally friendly resort may be keen to learn that The Dusit also have a range of properties for sale from 34,000,000 Baht.  Please contact us for further information.
