Mövenpick Named World’s Most Sustainable Hotel Group
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has been named the world’s most sustainable hotel group for the second year running by world-renowned certification body Green Globe.
The international hospitality firm has also been hailed as a “global sustainability leader” in the ‘Green Globe Report 2017’, with over 50% of its properties worldwide achieving the prestigious ‘Gold’ status.
‘Gold’ status is an accolade bestowed on hotels and resorts that have achieved Green Globe certification for five years or more.
These properties have been independently audited across 385 performance indicators and consistently met or exceeded the standards and criteria this rigorous certification process entails.
For the last 25 years, Green Globe has set the highest standards of sustainability certification for the travel and tourism industry.
The key requirement is for properties to execute an active Sustainability Management Plan that delivers performance in the areas of socio-economic contribution; environmental protection; and the preservation of culture and heritage.
For each Green Globe certified Mövenpick hotel and resort, this plan is activated via an in-house green team and, to ensure verification of these actions, an independent on-site inspection is regularly conducted.
Looking to 2018, the hospitality firm has set ambitious Green Globe targets for its new and existing properties, explained Olivier Chavy, President & CEO, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
