Sustainable tourism with Six Sense’s Jeff Smith

Sustainability19 minutes

Within the hospitality industry, for example, there have been major strides to ban individual shampoo bottles and plastic straws, and reduce water usage through the re-use of sheets and towels. A company which has been at the forefront of sustainability in hospitality — even before the industry as a whole began to have a larger sustainability conversation — is Six Senses, a hotel, resort, and spa collection with “a passion for wellness, community, sustainable design, and smiles.”

Jeff Smith, Vice President of Sustainability at Six Senses — which has been an innovator in the sustainability space since the mid-1990s — sat down with us to discuss how the brand approaches operating a luxury hospitality business without compromising the ability of future generations to continue to exist harmoniously with the environment.
