Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel Achieves EarthCheck’s Silver Certification

The Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel has achieved EarthCheck’s Silver Certification.

 Since achieving Bronze Certificate last year, the hotel has successfully implemented more comprehensive and sustainable operations in every department, such as reducing paper products and water usage, and encouraging greater reduction, reuse and recycling.

 Furthermore, the hotel has partnered with Foodlink Foundation and now donates unconsumed food from events and restaurants to minimise wastage and move towards a zero-waste environment.
