We have developed management systems, through policy and protocol frameworks, to ensure best practice techniques, such as energy management, waste management, environmental management, to name a few, is carried out in the day to day business of the lodge.
Of the many strategies we have developed, one, known as the International Compliance Strategy aims to ensure the lodge complies with sustainable tourism standards set by the United Nations, the World Tourism Organisation, World Conservation Union, The International Ecotourism Association, and the World Trade Organisation.
To further our commitment to best practice sustainable tourism and ecotourism, strategic alliances have been developed with various commonwealth and state government departments. One of these departments is the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO). Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa formalised a partnership with AGO under the Greenhouse Challenge which focuses Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa efforts on reducing greenhouse emissions and most importantly, requires Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa to satisfy detailed audits and energy management assessments carried out by AGO.
