On Friday, April 22, 2016 from 08:00 – 11:00 am, Hotel Borobudur Jakarta managed by Discovery Hotels & Resorts and with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Artha Graha Peduli, hosted a positive action to commemorate Earth Day: Trees Planting held at Taman Lapangan Banteng & Taman Cideng – Central Jakarta, attended by officials from the Jakarta Provincial Government and General Manager Hotel Borobudur Jakarta – Patrick Beck and the Department Heads, Representative of Artha Graha Peduli, and Representative of Discovery Hotels & Resorts.
Being a Hotel which exceptionally concerned with green / eco living, is also currently following special Waste Management, Energy Management (electricity, gas and water) and Safety Program. Through the implementation of this program the Hotel manages to greatly reduce its electricity, water and gas consumption through the years. Hotel Borobudur has introduced a new compost fertilizer and watering system that utilizes recycled waste water. Guest are also encourage to involve themselves in the hotel’s environmental initiatives and are offered advise on how to use towels, linen, electricity and water more efficiently during their stays. The implementation and achievement of the program will be monitored on an ongoing basis, and as our environmental knowledge continues to grow, the program will be developed and expanded accordingly.
Hotel Borobudur Jakarta as a 5 star hotel and well support to all activities related to environment, has committed to the environment – friendly conservation program. Therefore, we are very proud to be able to undertake this positive action, and be thankful to the Landscape Department DKI Jakarta that provided directions for the Tree Planting program, so it will make Jakarta greener and a long way from pollution by giving us these landscape; Taman Cideng and Taman Lapangan Banteng.
Celebrating Earth Day, Hotel Borobudur Jakarta trusts that the positive action; Trees Planting, will save our world from climate change. Trees provide food, energy, and income. They filter the air and help stave off the effects of climate change both globally and locally. They are a natural, resilient, and long-lasting safety buffer to extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods, and blizzards. And the longer the trees/forests grow and stay in place, the more powerful these protections become.
Join the movement; take action for our better world!
