Jeffery Smith

Vice President Sustainability at Six Senses


Since joining Six Senses in 2016, Jeffery has been an integral part in supporting the group’s leadership position in sustainable hospitality. He spearheaded the redevelopment of the group’s Earth Lab concept with sustainability leaders from across all Six Senses properties and lead the first Six Senses Sustainability Conference. He continuously coordinates closely with both Technical Services and Operations to ensure that new projects and concepts adhere closely to the group’s guidelines as well as ongoing auditing all Six Senses resorts for guideline compliance.

Jeffery draws upon a decade of experience launching community-based tourism programs where he focused on capacity building and facilitating connections between travellers, indigenous peoples and the natural world. He is a strong believer in the hospitality sector’s capacity to engage with sustainability, to welcome guests and communities to join in rebuilding a better future and foster the authenticity and optimism that the world seeks.
