EarthCheck presents Hong Kong luxury lifestyle hotel Langham Place with prestigious award for green initiatives

Award-winning luxury lifestyle hotel, Langham Place Hong Kong has been awarded the prestigious Gold level of certification by EarthCheck, the world’s leading certifier of travel and tourism organisations, for its continuous environmental improvements over a period of five years or more, securing a sustainable future for its business.
Located in the heart of the cultural hub of Hong Kong that is Mong Kok, the hotel has been accommodating both locals and tourists with a green attitude alike since it opened 9 years ago.
To achieve the accolade, the hotel’s environmental procedures are analysed and assessed against EarthCheck’s best practise levels. Each year, the hotel has to submit a full year of operational data to EarthCheck, benchmarked against the industry standard of Best Practise. A number of key indicators are measured, including energy and water consumption, water saving, total waste production, and community commitment, in response directly to major environmental problems.
“Since our hotel’s opening in 2005, we have made a commitment to green initiatives and sustainable practise in all our daily operations and have had environmental management system fully in place,” says Shaun Campbell, general manager of Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong. “We have recommended green living to our guests, colleagues and the wider community.”
In addition, in 2013, the hotel has helped reduce environmental impact by doing the following:
Carbon Footprint: through various engineering retrofits and the hotel’s Reduce, Reuse and Recycling Programmes, its carbon footprint reduced by 3.14% in comparison with 2008
Recycling: The hotel saved more than 281 tonnes of rubbish in the landfills through recycling
Bio-Fuel Creation: The hotel recycled 827 litres of cooking oil in 2013, transforming it into bio-fuel
Paper Saving: By implementing a paperless office environment where possible, the hotel have used 124,550 less pieces of paper in 2013 when compared to 2012.
