Following the release of its yearly sustainability report, Waterbom Bali has established itself as Asia’s number one Eco-Conscious waterpark, and one of the world’s most sustainable and friendly attractions.
Over the course of the year, following an enormous efforts that took place from January to December 2019, Waterbom Bali has successfully recycled 80% of its waste material; saved 554,402 kWh of grid energy; become CO2 neutral and CFC-free; and conserved 54,000 m3 of water, totaling to 3 million Aqua gallons (gallon water bottles). Essentially, this is equivalent to composting 141,776 kg worth of waste material — or more than the weight of a Blue Whale; conserving enough energy to power The Statue of Liberty for three weeks; inflating the metric equivalent of 30 hot air balloons with water; and offset enough carbon emissions to plant 8,458 trees.
As an essential part of everyday life, Waterbom Bali has been able to reduce its water usage through numerous water-saving strategies. This includes using efficient water appliances, recycling water for garden irrigation, reducing tap flow rates at its F&B outlets, and strategically placing the Lazy River at the heart of the waterpark with a closed loop filtration and circulation system that distributes water to various rides after it has been sand-filtered. Lastly, Waterbom Bali’s energy consumption has been drastically reduced due to its various renewable energy efforts. From implementing the use of solar panels and LED bulbs to energy efficient pumps and CFC-free air conditioning units, all areas of the park have been carefully considered and built to minimize its energy consumption.
Waterbom Bali’s sustainability initiatives don’t stop here. In 2020, the park aims to recycle 100% of its organic waste within the park, rather than sending it to pig farms as fodder. The waterpark also targets to reduce their landfill rate by half, sending only 10% or less of their waste to the landfill, advocating for further education on Bali’s waste and water management crisis, and leading by example in order to create an impactful systemic change within their park and spread the knowledge on sustainability with the wider industry.
