We comply or exceed all Six Senses sustainability standards plus international and local regulations in areas such as safety, health and the environment.
The Earth Lab has its own recycling system where waste is segregated and then handled for recycling, composting or reusing. This includes paper, metal, glass and plastic. We also partner with certified local companies to handle waste in the most sustainable manner.
We liaise with our suppliers to make their packaging more sustainable, requesting they eliminate unnecessary materials such as plastic bags or wrapping. Where possible we purchase in bulk and use a system of returnable boxes and containers. In food production, plastic bags and plastic film is replaced with washable bins or linen bags. We also encourage guests not to wrap their luggage with plastic film.
Contemporary Balinese touches throughout the resort represent unique aspects of local culture highlighting our commitment to being responsible and caring. All furniture has been crafted on the island and timber used in the furniture and in construction has Indonesian legal certification.
We use only smart appliances in guestrooms, and lighting throughout the property is programmed or controlled by sensors. Smart systems efficiently operate all climate control installations. The roofs of the buildings have been designed to limit the need for air conditioning.
Food and landscaping waste is composted as a natural fertilizer for our organic garden, producing 440 pounds (200 kilograms) every two months, while kitchen oil is converted to biodiesel. Used coffee capsules and cleaning products are returned to suppliers for upcycling or processing and waste is separated for recycling or compliant disposal.
Grey and black water is treated onsite and then mixed with rainwater catchment for reuse in landscape gardening and fire hydrant storage. Well water from the resort’s own source is purified with sand filters and reverse osmosis filters before being bottled on site.
Employing locally is one of our social commitments, together with internships, work experience programs and supporting street children.
We support the Yayasan Kasih Peduli Anak orphanage program by selling dolls in guest accommodations while offering the means to donate funds. This support includes providing food and education to children living on the streets and empowering less privileged parents with employment opportunities or basic livelihood necessities to give them the means to build a brighter future. This is a major source of education and engagement for guests with the local community.
Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali has committed to employing locally. The vast majority of hosts are of Balinese origin, with 40 percent being from the surrounding area of Pecatu. The resort offers six-month internships to high-performing school students and work experience opportunities for university students majoring in tourism.
