Novotel Benoa Bali becomes First Accor Hotel in Asia to achieve Green Globe Certification

The Novotel Benoa Bali has become the the first Accor hotel in Asia to achieve Green Globe Certified, a Green Globe qualification which recognises the hotel’s commitment to successfully implement an integrated Environmental Management System.

The resort was assessed according to 8 key performance areas that seek to guarantee a range of environmental measures including better waste management, community development, chemical products control, and energy and water consumption control. Novotel Benoa Bali is to undergo an annual on-site certification audit as part of the pilot program during the first year, and thereafter every 2 years.

Philippe Le Bourhis, General Manager of Novotel Benoa Bali said, “We are encouraging our partners to find ways to reduce the impact of climate change and take significant steps to preserve Bali as a resort island. Our team is very enthusiastic about Green Globe program and has made significant improvements on energy saving by recycling waste water and collecting rain water. In April this year, we collected enough funds in order to plant 1,763 trees at Accor Indonesia’s tree planting project in Gelandang Village in Central Java, adding to the 76,000 trees that Accor Indonesia has planted for the project.”

Through the hotel’s guest room-towel re-using program, in which guests are invited to reuse their towels instead of having them re-laundered, Novotel Benoa Bali has committed to planting 1 tree for every 10 re-used towels.

Novotel began its involvement in the Green Globe certification programme in July 2007, through an initial pilot phase, at 28 hotels in 12 countries across five continents. The countries involved were: the United Kingdom, Switzerland, France, Brazil, the Ivory Coast, India, China, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.

Today, Novotel has four certified hotels: Novotel Sharm El Sheikh, Novotel Lyon Part Dieu, and Novotel London Tower Bridge and now the Novotel Benoa Bali. The Novotel Shanghai Atlantis is expected to be certified in the near future.

Each hotel is assessed according to eight performance criteria that will guarantee, among other things, better waste management, less pollution, and energy and water consumption control.

Accor expects that by the year 2010 all Novotel hotels should have been committed to the Green Globe environmental certification programme.
