The Shangri-La group initiated the certification programme as part of their sustainable sourcing strategy.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts Becomes First MSC Certified Hotel Group in Asia

  (HONG KONG, 6/11/2018)
Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has announced it has received Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Chain of Custody certification (CoC) for all 53 of its properties across mainland China and Hong Kong. With all hotels in the group participating in the MSC program, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts have the greatest number of properties in Asia certified by the MSC.
 
The Shangri-La hotels have supported MSC's Sustainable Seafood Week every year since its launch in 2014 to raise awareness for the protection of ocean resources and encourage consumers to source sustainable seafood.

 The Shangri-La group recognised that overfishing and increased demand from consumers in Asia – the world’s biggest seafood exporter, whose population accounts for one-third of all fish consumption – are putting pressure on the oceans. This new certification will allow their guests to make sustainable and healthy choices.

53 hotels are MSC certified.

The Shangri-La group initiated the certification programme as part of their sustainable sourcing strategy, commitment to protect future seafood supplies and to make a positive impact on the environment. Guests can now identify sustainable seafood culinary offerings by the trusted MSC ecolabel printed on restaurant menus alongside the dish description. 

“By being the first to partner with the MSC in Asia, we hope to galvanize others in the hotel industry to join us in offering certified sustainable seafood to make a positive impact in the world collectively," said Shangri-La President & COO Ollver Bonke. “Providing our guests locally and ethically sourced food offerings has been a priority since we launched Rooted in Nature, our culinary sustainability initiative, in 2014. Our partnership with the MSC is the next milestone in our journey.”

Rupert Howes, Chief Excecutive of the MSC, said, “The leadership shown by Shangri-La is a visible commitment to meeting the highest globally recognised standards for seafood sustainability and traceability. The MSC ecolabel assures hotel guests that seafood is sustainably caught and can be traced back to a certified fishery. We applaud Shangri-La for the huge effort that went into achieving MSC certification for 53 hotels, and for their ongoing efforts to engage diners on the importance of choosing sustainable seafood.”

In 2012, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts implemented the Sustainable Seafood Policy, which ceased serving shark fin in all restaurants, as well as began phasing out Bluefin tuna and Chilean sea bass.

About The Shangri-La group 

The Shangri-La story began in 1971 with its first deluxe hotel in Singapore. Inspired by the legendary land featured in James Hilton's 1933 novel, Lost Horizon, the name Shangri-La encapsulates the serenity and service for which the hotels and resorts are renowned worldwide.

Today, Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is Asia Pacific's leading luxury hotel group. They are also regarded as one of the world’s finest hotel ownership and management companies.

With all hotels in the group participating in the MSC program, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts have the greatest number of properties in Asia certified by the MSC.

Owning and/or managing over 100 hotels and resorts throughout Asia Pacific, North America, the Middle East and Europe, the Shangri-La group has a room inventory of over 40,000.  In addition, new hotels are under development in mainland China, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Saudi Arabia and Sri Lanka.
