A partner resort with SPTO’s PSMP

SPTO is working to implement a sustainability monitoring program with hotels and resorts in the Pacific.  As this program is still being developed, not many hotels are participating.  This means that many resorts are missing out on getting valuable data and the ability to see how incorporating sustainable practices into their business would help decrease energy usage and therefore save money.

Our mission here at Treasure Island Resort is to offer the ultimate Fijian holiday experience, through providing innovative, consistently reliable and safe facilities for our guests. Whilst also recognizing the importance of striving to become the most community and environmentally friendly resort we can be, through sound environmental practices and responsible tourism techniques. Without our stunning surroundings we would not be here today; therefore we place a premium on protecting our beautiful environment and have committed to minimizing our impact upon it. We have a company-wide Environment and Sustainability Policy which guides our everyday activities to ensure we prioritize our natural and cultural resources and minimize any potential negative impacts on the people and environment that are the basis of our business.

Treasure is extremely proud to be a Sustainable Tourism Champion, working with the South Pacific Tourism Organisation on their pilot project to develop bench marking criteria for the region’s hospitality industry. The Sustainability Monitoring Program aims to facilitate effective monitoring of the efforts being put in to support national, regional and global initiatives in marine and ocean conservation, reduction in energy and water consumption, waste management, community livelihoods and employment. Through developing procedures and indicators to measure progress and facilitate proper documentation, efforts can then be quantified and communicated.
