The Eaton, Hong Kong has also been awarded the EarthCheck Silver Certificate for its ongoing commitment to environmentally friendly practices and causes, and will be aiming for Gold in 2015.

Since 2009, Eaton, Hong Kong has been actively strengthening its commitment to sustainability, and has incorporated the following concepts into numerous areas of the hotel:

Green Wall featuring 3,600 Sansevieria trifasciata plants that assist in improving indoor air quality through photosynthesis.

 Use of Sustainable and Renewable Resources fully sustainable and renewable bamboo wood material is used as an alternative to wood for lobby walling to minimise the impact of industrial logging.

Launch of Smart Room Product To demonstrate of how stylish well-chosen green products can be today, the room uses only LED lighting, a modern environmentally-friendly woven-vinyl flooring and acoustic wall panels that are produced with recycled materials.

The hotel has also invested in new technology to minimise plastic waste. The hotel invested HK$500,000 to install an eco-friendly drinking water purification system that allows glass bottles to be re-used, which in turn allowed the Eaton, Hong Kong to suspend the use of plastic bottled water. A move, that many other hotels in the region could learn from.
