Naturally Better

One of our guiding principles at Mandarin Oriental is ‘Acting with responsibility’, which we strive to achieve through our Naturally Better plan. We’re on a journey to make things Naturally Better for the planet, for communities, and for you. As well as embracing and putting into practice our global sustainability initiatives, such as eliminating single-use plastic by March 2021, here at Mandarin Oriental, Milan we also have our own local initiatives to make sure we play our part in making your stay more sustainable.

For the planet


At Mandarin Oriental, Milan we have an internal Green Committee consisting of 12 people who define the best practices to minimize our impact on the planet. Each department is called to act with responsibility, and the Commitee verifies on a monthly basis that all the activities are ongoing and put in place.


For communities


We are passionate about working for Mandarin Oriental, Milan and we actively support and cooperate with several charitable associations in order to give people who are less fortunate than ourselves, the opportunity to find a fulfilling career. We employ a number of interns who in turn learn useful skills and gain self-confidence and a new perspective on life.


For you


We have implemented several measures across our hotel which align with our group-wide policy of eliminating single-use plastic by March 2021. Here at Mandarin Oriental, Milan we are strongly committed to eliminating all single-use plastic. We use only bottles in recycled aluminium and we are working on replacing all of our bathroom amenities with a specific range of high-end products that will be available in dispensers, wrapped in recycled FSC certificated paper and in recycled aluminium tubes.
