Marriott International has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Pertagas Niaga which will see 26 of Marriott Bonvoy’s hotels and resorts in Bali commit to using clean energy source.
This agreement is guided by the company’s 2025 Sustainability and Social Impact Goals and in tandem with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Marriott will pledge to make positive impact such as converting LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) to CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), as well as lowering carbon emission by 15 per cent.
Marriott’s area vice president, Indonesia, Ramesh Jackson, said: “Beyond a corporate platitude, it is impossible for us to ignore the pressing and urgent environmental needs of today. This partnership with Pertagas Niaga is a step towards the right direction to conserve and preserve what we have for the next generation. We look forward to expanding this to our portfolio in key cities such as Jakarta, Surabaya, and Bandung in the near future.”
“This MoU signing marked the collaboration of two different businesses contributing towards sustainability for future generations and SDG’s achievements of Indonesia,” added Aminuddin, president director, Pertagas Niaga.
