Electric Vehicle Experience: The Apurva Kempinski Bali and Indonesia’s Sustainable Corporations Come Together to Operate Exclusive EV Transport and Solar Panel Charging Hub
A joint-venture initiative, in their effort to reduce carbon footprint
The Apurva Kempinski Bali has once again taken another step towards a more sustainable approach to the tourism industry. This luxury resort has partnered with Indonesia’s premium sustainable brands, such as Nissan LEAF, Bank Central Asia and Danone Indonesia, to operate the ‘Electric Vehicle Experience and Solar Panel Charging Hub’. This partnership focuses on creating a more environmentally friendly option for travellers. Those who stay at the resort can now use Nissan’s electric vehicle, Nissan LEAF, and contribute to reducing carbon emissions as they explore the Nusa Dua area and adjacent attractions. To ensure a seamless experience, the resort also has its own EV charging station, making it the only resort in Bali to
have this essential site.
The Apurva Kempinski Bali has been consistently pushing out initiatives that are centred on embedding a sustainable plan into its programmes and guest experiences. As a leading presence on Bali’s hospitality scene, it is committed to inspiring the local community with a series of efforts,
such as creating a sustainable wedding package and using its rooftop space to grow various types of greens for a more sustainable kitchen in the resort. Similarly, its partner for this movement – Nissan – builds on its decades-long programmes to reduce emissions and provide electric vehicle technologies that benefit the environment and society, while the Solar Panel Charging Hub cooperation with Bank Central Asia and Danone Indonesia elevates the partnership to a different level. Bank Central Asia is committed to work towards the Indonesia’s Sustainable Development Goals and work collaboratively with the government to pursue this movement. Through its waste management project in 2022, this premium bank was able to potentially reduce CO2 emissions by 348.9 tons, which is equivalent to preserving +29,000 trees. In addition, this corporation also partnered up with local communities and MSMEs in its recycling program. Through its vision of One Planet, One Health, Danone Indonesia has carried out various programmes and sustainable business practices in nature conservation, community empowerment and internal companies, as well as involving various sectors in supporting the government to achieve targets for the
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Indonesia.
“We have a big vision in terms of sustainability, and in order for us to achieve our goals, it is important for us to find and work together with those who share our vision,” shared General Manager, Vincent Guironnet. “We hope that our partnership with Nissan, Bank Central Asia and Danone Indonesia will further strengthen our sustainability strategies, and we are looking forward to more development in the future.”
