Achieving the Bronze Earthcheck Certificate 2015 for sustainable environmental development, making Laguna Lăng Cô the only EarthCheck-certified resort in Vietnam and strengthening Laguna Lăng Cô’s position as a leading sustainable hospitality business after only 2 years of operation.

Based on energy consumption facts collected during EarthCheck Benchmarking, Laguna Lăng Cô CSR has launched the Energy Conservation campaign to raise associates’ awareness in saving energy for sustainable development.

Using posters and stickers in the back-of-house workplace, the campaign brings across the message that too much energy consumption is damaging for the environment. Posters give a list of action (tips) associates can do to help reduce consumption, encouraging and reminding associates to help conserve energy

Apart from Energy Conservation Campaign Laguna Lang Co is also heavily involved with help strengthen community.

Apart from Energy Conservation Campaign Laguna Lang Co is also heavily involved with help strengthen community.

The hotel has planted 4515 trees in local schools and surrounding areas, creating shades and greenery for young students’ playgrounds, with participation of hotel guests and associates. About 3km from the resort, 600 mangrove trees were planted in Bu Lu River, as Bu Lu river is a heightening danger for the local community due to the high risk of erosion every year.

The project aims to protect local river banks from erosion and subsequently protect the lives and resources of hundreds of households living along the river. It will also improve the available fish farming areas that support local fisheries, as well as creating green scenery for the local area.

While help improving the community, Laguna Lang Co sees the importance of individuals and has partnered with Hue Help to implement the program Swimming For Safety providing first aid courses and swimming techniques to 1,200 secondary school students in 10 schools within Phu Loc district, Thua Thien Hue province where Laguna Lăng Cô is based. (Vietnam is the one of countries with the highest rate of drowning in the world, an average of 32 deaths every day.)

We raised money for the fund from our international sports event the Laguna Lăng Cô Triathlon, with proceeds from an auction and donation providing lessons for 170 more students. The program also raised more awareness for safety in the local community‘ said, Michal Zitek, the General Manager of Laguna Lăng Cô.

In 2015, Laguna Lăng Cô organized 14 CSR projects, 2272 hour spent participating in CSR activities from guests and staff, 1174 People benefited directly from CSR Projects in 2015,  and had 167 guests involved in CSR activities. 

Michal Zitek and his team will continue to be a leader in CSR among other hotels in the area in 2016.

In 2016, we hope to continue expanding the community we support through our activities, as well as strengthening our natural conservation efforts. We want Laguna Lăng Cô to be recognised as a resort with strong social responsibility by travelers to the region, and that our Stay For Good initiatives will be an unforgettable memory of their
