Commitment to Conservation on World Environment Day

Launch of the Earth Basket programme 

The Residence by Cenizaro, part of Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts, commemorates World Environment Day on 5 June by demonstrating its commitment to conservation, beginning with the complete rollout of the Earth Basket initiative across most of The Residence by Cenizaro properties this summer. These kitchen gardens are part of Cenizaro’s greater global strategy to deliver world-class hospitality through enriching experiences for guests, staff and the local community.

The new Earth Basket initiative is part of the Cenizaro Cares programme and challenges each resort to successfully transform an area of the resort into a year-round on-site kitchen farm. Spearheaded by each resort’s Green Committee, independence is given to each resort to develop the farms to suit their unique needs and to best showcase native produce. Food waste from the resort is composted in-house and is subsequently used to nourish the kitchen gardens without any further use of pesticides to aid growth. This initiative hopes to showcase the local biodiversity of each destination and provide rich varieties of zero kilometre produce at peak freshness while also serving as an educational tool for staff, guests and the broader community.

These initiatives are part of the overarching Cenizaro Cares programme encompassing all properties under the group. It is the core of Cenizaro’s sustainability strategy and underlines its commitment towards inspiring change for a more sustainable tomorrow. It is also exploring opportunities for guests to engage local communities and aid in nurturing the future over a shared sense of purpose. 


Alexys Tjhia, Director of Corporate Responsibility at The Residence by Cenizaro

“We want to be more than a window for our guests to view the natural beauty of their surroundings. We want to offer travellers an immersive, enriching opportunity for them to experience the real local biodiversity of each of our properties, the full flavours of the land and connect with the community. We are incredibly privileged to be in some of the world’s most breathtaking places and we want to ensure that we pay it back by kickstarting efforts to preserve and grow what makes them so special.”
