How to Achieve UN 17 SDG & Climate Change, Circular Economy, Sustainability, Water & Food Security and save from 30% and more in hotel operations

As an environmentalist and naturalist, we hope this event can be the start of being sustainable. This means more profit since we can learn over 200 ways to save. Also, partnering with UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) means we can reach people to the 4 corners of the world.

We have been organizing conferences on sustainability and environment for the last 14 years ever since acquiring the Frangipani Resort on this beautiful island of Langkawi, Kedah, Malaysia.

Adj Professor Anthony Wong Kim Hooi developed the most efficient and fastest wastewater treatment system to clean polluted wastewater, including raw sewage and waste cooking oil to a drinking water standard in 3 – 4 days, including desalination using special bio engineered constructed wetland, all without using any energy. During the dry season, we pump ground water to keep our wetland alive. As we are so close to the sea, we get brackish water. Despite that, we are still able to treat the water into a drinking standard water – desalination without energy. This finding was approved by Malaysian Government on 10th August 2017 and now, this system is recognized in the 12th Malaysia Plan 2021-2025, where Adj Professor Anthony Wong helped to draft out the technical act of the constructed wetland.

Global issues that are occurring currently are water and food security. A water-secure world uses the productive power of water and reduces its destructive impact. It is a world where everyone has safe, affordable, clean water to live a healthy and productive life. It is a world where communities are protected from floods, droughts, landslides, erosion and waterborne diseases. Food security means that all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their food preferences and dietary needs for an active and healthy life.

All the issues highlighted above are some of the topics that will be covered during the conference. Since our resort is recognized as the most sustainable star rated in ASEAN with over 200 ways to save using science, architecture, technology, bioengineering, natural sciences, innovation and continuous research & development. This means we save up to 30% and more in hotel operation costs. We will show ways to breed poultry and fishes without buying any animal feed, we do this by breeding crickets and black soldier flies. We will also show ways to grow food on our organic farm and wetland.

We use the ASEAN Green hotel standard and the United Nation (UN) 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as guidelines and are able to fulfill all its criteria. This year, we are very fortunate to have 2 UN speakers on Climate Change and on Economic Sustainability. We will launch the Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Hospitality during this conference. Our goal is to make Cottage by the Sea by Frangipani Carbon Negative by 2030.

The goal is to share the best practices in sustainability and to show going green is a more profitable business in the long run. This conference is a way for capacity building, sharing locally and globally. Our organizing partner, Malaysia Green Building Council (malaysiaGBC), Malaysia Green Building Index (jointly by Architects and Engineers’ Association) are key players in promoting sustainability in the building industry.
