Carlson Hotels Worldwide has been recognised by Green Globe for its environmental efforts at eight of its Asia Pacific properties. Focused on areas such as energy efficiency and minimising green house emissions, Green Globe provides an environmental management framework for organisations within the travel and tourism industry to achieve sustainability accreditation.

The group’s six hotels in China – Park Plaza Beijing Wangfujing, Radisson Hotel Pudong Century Park, Radisson Hotel Shanghai Hong Quan, Radisson Hotel Shanghai New World, Radisson Plaza Xing Guo Hotel Shanghai and The Regent Beijing achieved bronze certification as well as the Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens Melbourne in Australia. The 362-room Radisson Plaza Hotel Sydney, which recently clinched the Sustainable Operations Award at the prestigious Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP) awards, was accredited with silver certification.

“Environmental sustainability programmes are part of our commitment to conducting responsible business, and the Green Globe certification provides recognition for our adherence to the highest international standards,” said Jean-Marc Busato, managing director – Asia Pacific, Carlson Hotels Worldwide. “We are pursuing ambitious plans to become green globe certified by mid-2010 for all our Asia Pacific properties including Regent Hotels & Resorts, Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts and Park Inn hotels.”

On a global scale, Carlson Hotels Worldwide is focusing on specific sustainable issues such as reducing, recycling and reusing solid waste, reducing the use of harmful chemicals, conserving energy and water, and improving indoor air quality that has immediate impact on the environment and the communities where its hotels operate.

In addition, the group is in partnership with The CarbonNeutral Company, a UK-based carbon offsetting company that supports projects associated with renewable energy, resource conservation and waste reduction, for its goldpoints plus loyalty programme. The programme offers guests the opportunity to redeem points for community-based carbon reduction projects.
