ENVI LODGES PARTNERS WITH BEYOND GREEN
ENVI Lodges, the GCC’s first luxury eco-lodge brand and management company, has joined Beyond Green, a global portfolio of hotels, lodges and resorts representing sustainable tourism leadership. Beyond Green is owned by Preferred Hotel Group, which provides sales, marketing and technology solutions to independent hotels and resorts.
As part of its partnership with Beyond Green, ENVI will benefit from I Prefer, Preferred Hotel Group’s loyalty rewards programme, enabling guests to earn and redeem points in more than 650 hotels and resorts across 80 countries.
ENVI Lodges, which was launched in September by industry specialists Chris Nader and Noelle Homsy, shares Beyond Green’s core values – nature, culture, and community – applied to every aspect of the business, from design to operating philosophy.
Beyond Green members must meet more than 50 sustainable tourism standards that are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The vetting process is based on implementation of environmentally friendly practices; protection of natural and cultural heritage; and contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of local communities
