Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore awarded ISO 14001 certification

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Wednesday, 6 February 2008

The Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore has received the certificate of approval from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance for its compliance with the International Organisation for Standardisation 14001 (ISO 14001), the first of its kind to be conferred upon a Singapore-based hotel.

The ISO 14001 requires an organisation to achieve and demonstrate that a sound environmental management system is in place. This internationally recognised standard is objectively audited based on stringent requirements. Environmentally friendly and cost efficient practices that were assessed include the use of energy saving light bulbs, biodegradable cleaning materials, water restrictors and sewage treatment facilities to prevent water pollution.

The management and staff at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, have conscientiously adopted environmentally responsible practices since the late 1990s. Following the publication of the “Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer” in 1998, the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore was one of the first hotels to have non-chlorofluorocarbon (non-CFC) chillers. The hotel was also the winner of the “ASEAN Energy Award – Retrofitted Building Category” in 2002. In 2006, a unique orchid hybrid, named “Dendrobium by Shangri-La Singapore,” was specially registered with the Royal Horticultural Society in the United Kingdom to reinforce the commitment to botany and environmental awareness at the hotel.

“After a decade of pioneering environmentally responsible practices, it is the natural progression for Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore to benchmark this system against an internationally recognised set of standards. With the rising importance of corporate social responsibility, many global companies do not only adopt socially responsible practices but also expect their partners and suppliers to do the same. The ISO 14001 certification gives all stakeholders an objective assessment of our hotel’s total compliance to environmental, social, legal and commercial requirements,” said Mr. Thierry Douin, area manager and general manager of the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore.

The Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore joins 23 sister hotels including a private members’ club that have already achieved the same certification.
