Laguna Lang Co Works Towards ‘The Greater Good’

Lang Co, Vietnam: One of Vietnam’s greenest resorts, Laguna Lang Co is urging sustainability projects around the nation to take advantage of a new eco grant scheme it has helped to develop.

With initiatives including a moratorium on single-use plastics and its ‘edible golf course’ planted with rice fields and tended by water buffalos, Laguna Lang Co is regarded as a standard-bearer for sustainable tourism in Vietnam.

Now, the expansive integrated resort in Central Vietnam, which encompasses award-winning hotels Banyan Tree Lang Co and Angsana Lang Co, as well as acclaimed Faldo Design-sculpted Laguna Golf Lang Co, is maintaining its eco-minded ethos by encouraging deserving projects around the country to apply for new sustainability grants backed by its parent company, the Banyan Tree Group.

With sustainable development seen as a key way of rebuilding the global economy for the post-pandemic era, eco-focused projects around Vietnam are seeking support for their work.

As such, the new ‘Greater Good Grants’, launched by the Banyan Tree Global Foundation, the CSR arm of the global hospitality group, at the end of October, will provide vital financial backing of up to US$10,000 across six areas that align to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for projects around Vietnam to obtain funding that they both require – and deserve,” said Adam Calver, Director of Golf and Destination Marketing at Laguna Lang Co, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“In this time where hope and optimism are needed more than ever, we hope to catalyse positive ripple effects and extend our support to more partners seeking to create positive, sustainable change,” he added.

The six areas covered by the grant are as follows –

●     Bio-diversity and Conservation: improve understanding, conservation and management of species and habitats.

●     Resource Use and Waste Management: innovative projects that tackle cradle to grave life cycle of resources that benefit community, business and the environment.

●     Climate Change and Resilience: elucidate global change and develop resilience in natural and human systems.

●     Education and Empowerment: development of education infrastructure, capacity and delivery to students of any age, with particular focus on disadvantaged members of society.

●     Health and Protection: focus on health and well-being in local communities.

●     Culture and Livelihood: development, protection, restoration and stewardship of culture and livelihoods.

Laguna Lang Co has phased out plastic accessories in favour of items made with sustainable materials.

The Greater Good Grants for Year 2021 will remain open for submissions until December 31 and will invite projects across six areas as specified. Project grants are up to US$10,000, open to all individuals over the age of 18, who have an organisational affiliation. Submissions will be reviewed by the Board of Directors of Banyan Tree Global Foundation and an internal panel of stakeholders. Successful project grantees will be notified by the first quarter of 2021.

“Our usual approach has been to award project grants mainly through our operating properties and support the environment and community stakeholders in that specific vicinity,” said Dr Steve Newman, Assistant Vice President, Group Sustainability Director and Co-ordinating Director of Banyan Tree Global Foundation.

“While projects should be in the same countries as where we operate, our new approach is to invite NGOs and academics to apply so we can support more impactful projects benefitting people and the planet.”
