Pan Pacific Hotels Group achieves sustainability milestone


Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG) has attained the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) Industry Criteria for Hotels certification for all its eight properties in Singapore.

The Group now has the largest number of GSTC-certified room stock and certified hotels and serviced suites in Singapore.

“Attaining the GSTC certification reaffirms PPHG’s commitment to sustainability and responsible business conduct,” said Choe Peng Sum, CEO of Pan Pacific Hotels Group.

“At PPHG, sustainability is imperative and I am grateful for our teams’ immense efforts to attain the GSTC Multi-Site certification. This achievement is aligned with Singapore’s Green Plan 2030 and the Singapore Tourism Board’s Hotel Sustainability Roadmap, which aims for 60 per cent of hotel room stock in Singapore to attain internationally recognised sustainability certification by 2025.”

Singapore Tourism Board’s Chief Sustainability Officer Ong Huey Hong congratulated Pan Pacific Hotels Group on its achievement.

“The certification is testament to PPHG’s leadership in sustainable hospitality,” Huey said.

“We are encouraged by the increasing momentum among hotels in embracing sustainable practices following the launch of the Hotel Sustainability Roadmap.

“We trust that PPHG’s latest achievement will inspire more hotels to strive towards certification, bringing us closer towards the targets outlined in the Roadmap, with STB’s continued support on their sustainability journey.”
