The Radisson Blu Es. Hotel Rome, in Italy, is embracing sustainability and has obtained the Green Key award through its business management respecting the environment, including optimizing energy, joining international solidarity initiatives as well as soon making the hotel plastic free.
The work at Radisson Blu Es. Hotel Rome includes the appliance of a series of procedures aimed at reducing the waste and paying attention to the possible impacts deriving from air emissions.
A significant difference has been made in the energy management of the establishment. The energy use is reduced to a minimum thanks to the particular architectural structure of the hotel with large windows positioned around the entire hotel which favors the introduction of solar rays in all internal areas and throughout the day, the so-called daylighting phenomenon.
Strategic actions have also been added in the action plan of the establishment with the aim to lower the environmental footprint and cut the costs. This includes staff training and various awareness programmes to change the environmental behaviour in line with sustainable goals already set.
The international solidarity initiatives of Radisson Blu Es. Hotel Rome include support to the conservation and protection of water supply in Kenya.
Finally, the hotel management has announced its intention to minimise its environmental footprint by committing to eliminate the use of the plastic starting from the ban on disposable products and cocktail straws.
