Gili Lankanfushi earns EarthCheck Bronze Benchmarked Award!

We are so proud to have finally received
our Benchmarked Bronze award after
months of collecting data
Gili Lankanfushi has become the 4th property in Maldives to gain an EarthCheck Eco Accreditation!

It's well known that Gili Lankanfushi's environmental efforts are above and beyond, but receiving this Bronze Benchmarked award verifies and gives official recognition that the resort maintains excellent social and environmental standards.

The Benchmark award ranks us in accordance with other resorts' performance around the Maldives and the rest of the World in terms of social and environmental good practice. 

In order to receive this prestigious award we had to submit one year's worth of operational data including measurements of our water and energy consumption and waste management procedures. All the data was then subjected to a rigorous environmental benchmarking process to calculate where we currently stand in terms of seven specific environmental indicators. 

Our involvement with EarthCheck allows us to monitor our performance year-on-year, and by highlighting key areas where there may be more room for improvement, we can continually grow and strive for the highest possible sustainability levels.

Having recently completed external waste, water, and energy audits, Gili Lankanfushi is keen to implement new measures and build upon our current EarthCheck level, where the next step for us is to achieve Silver Certified status. In order to achieve this certification, we must prove that we are maintaining our good practices in key environmental performance areas as well as implement a long term sustainability approach.
The team here at Gili Lankanfushi are so proud to have received such an important accreditation, and we invite all our guests to take an Eco Tour of the island and allow our knowledgeable hosts to show you what sets Gili apart.
