S Hotels and Resorts, the global hospitality company from Singha Estate, has joined forces with the Environmental Education Centre (EEC) Thailand to host an important event aimed at raising awareness about the major environmental issues facing Thailand.
Hosted at SAii Phi Phi Island Village, the free-spirited five-star resort nestled amid lush jungle on Koh Phi Phi Don, the “SeaYouTomorrow” camp was an immersive three-day gathering that saw senior executives come together with environmental experts, local children and members of the media to witness first-hand the impact of climate change and human activity on communities in southern Thailand, and take steps to combat it.
CSR and conservation is a core element of S Hotels & Resorts’ sustainable business strategy. By joining forces with EEC Thailand, the company’s management team was able to understand the most pressing ecological issues and see how they can weave practical solutions into their day-to-day operations. By inviting local children on Phi Phi Island, the companies also aimed to engage the educate, inspire and upskill the next generation of conservationists.
The list of top-level guests at the camp was headed by Stefano A. Ruzza, Senior Vice President of Operations at S Hotels & Resorts, Alexander Simon Rendell, CEO of EEC Thailand and the UN Environment Programme’s first National Goodwill Ambassador for Thailand.
Led by EEC Thailand, the camp highlighted the critical environmental issues impacting in the area, including climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, carbon footprints and threats to biodiversity, to fully understand how these create the overall climate crisis.
