The Kahala Hotel & Resort is Dedicated to Sustainability

The Kahala Hotel & Resort was recognized by the state of Hawaii with the Governor's Green Business Award for its sustainable efforts. The legendary resort has served as an industry leader in the Hawaiian Islands in implementing sustainable practices in its daily operations for more than 50 years. Through its partnership with the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative, The Kahala Hotel and Resort is planting endemic forests on Oahu and Hawai'i Island.

The Kahala Hotel & Resort is deeply committed to preserving Oahu’s land, ocean and culture for generations to come. So together with the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative, a non-profit organization, we created the Kahala Initiative for Sustainability, Culture and the Arts (KISCA). KISCA is our commitment to restore part of the natural landscape of the island and plant 200,000 endemic Hawaiian Milo trees in Malaekahana on the North Shore of Oahu. It’s an important initiative that provides a brighter and more beautiful future for Hawaii.

”This partnership with The Kahala Resort, resort guests, and HLRI can help reestablish critical habitat for many of Hawaii's rarest plant and bird species, some of which are critically endangered,” said Gerald Glennon, General Manager of The Kahala Hotel & Resort.
