The establishment is distinguished by its particular attention to the sustainable management, thanks to the best practices adopted and promoted by the Green Key eco-label. The hotel has reduced its impact on the environment significantly compared to the last 10 years, and this has also led to a significant reduction in the management costs.
The 370-room hotel has a high level of energy efficiency, excellent waste management, constant monitoring of the carbon emission, activities and collaborations with numerous local associations in favor of disadvantaged communities, ambitious work in progress projects aimed at the continuous improvement of the establishment, etc. Thus, ‘Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort’ has really deserved to part of the network of Green Key awarded establishments.
The Green Key certificate and plaque were handed over by Claudio Mazza, President of FEE Italia, on the occasion of the event organized at the hotel to celebrate the award.
"We are really proud of Green Key award" says Alessandro Cabella, Managing Director of Rome Cavalieri, "and we will continue to direct our efforts towards an increasingly sustainable and supportive management, with the hope of being able to be ambassadors of the values expressed by the Green Key Programme in the world”.
