Alila Jabal Akhdar’s commitment to treading lightly on the planet is evident in its discreet architecture, built from local stone in accordance with LEED environmental design principles. The resort is also making great strides towards achieving its next environmental target – zero waste to landfill.

Awarded 3rd EarthCheck status in 2019, the resort has initiated four R’s of zero waste – reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot (compost). 

Successfully diverted more than 181,880 kg of food waste, removed 153,728 kg of solid waste, and roughly 13,645 liters of chemicals, partial soaps, and amenities collected from rooms over the years of 2017-19. All food waste produced by the resort is composted and provides vegetable waste oil back to the resort’s organic farm. In addition, the restaurant has built its menu entirely around sustainable practices, farm-to-table meals, as well as waste and plastic reduction. 

Alila Jabal Akhdar uses its own refillable glass water bottles and has a water processing facility 2,000 meters above the sea in Oman's Al Hajar Mountains. Other green initiatives include solar power to heat the resorts hot water supply, which in turn is recycled to irrigate the grounds. On top of its efforts to minimize plastic usage at the property, elastic replaced by wooden cutlery, comb, toothbrush, paper straws, cups, trash bags, take out boxes, food wraps, biodegradable coffee capsules and turn down sustainable giveaways.

Alila Jabal Akdhar resort's donation program supports the protection of endangered wildlife and conserves natural heritage through its partnership with Environmental Society Oman.

Hotel Taking Steps Towards Sustainability
At the WalhallaHotel Regensburg Hoeferer, sustainability is not just an afterthought, but an integral part of their operations. The hotel is proud to be certified to GSTC-Recognized Standards and carries the Ecolabel or Eco Flower (EU) and PEFC certifications. It demonstrates a solid commitment to green practices, boasting a variety of eco-friendly services and facilities. Utilizing solar, hydro, geothermal, and biomass energy, the hotel powerfully integrates renewable resources to energize its premises. The building's architectural design is crafted to maximize the benefits of airflow and natural sunlight, reducing reliance on air-conditioning, artificial lighting, and heating. Notably, the facility features triple-glazed windows, providing superb insulation to regulate both heat and cold.

Besides energy conservation, the hotel implements a range of sustainable practices. Rainwater is diligently harvested and reused, and the use of non-toxic cleaning agents ensures an environment that is both safe and healthy. Committed to serving fresh, organic food at the restaurant, a considerable portion is procured from local suppliers, simultaneously bolstering local economies and reducing transportation-induced carbon emissions. LED lighting is used throughout the premises, reducing energy consumption further. A dedicated environmental manager oversees these practices, and all employees receive training to follow environmental policies. For guests keen on reducing their carbon footprint, the hotel offers bicycles for local exploration and electric car charging stations. Waste management at the hotel is also carefully considered, with waste separated into at least three categories, organic waste composted, and a policy in place to avoid disposable cups, glasses, plates, and cutlery. These initiatives, coupled with the provision of eco-labeled or non-chlorine bleached toilet paper, and toilets that flush up to 6 litres per flush, demonstrate the hotel's comprehensive approach to sustainability. The establishment further strengthens its green credentials by being a zero-energy building, with an automatic system that turns off the light and electrical appliances when guests leave their room. To ensure ongoing efficiency, an energy audit is carried out at least once every five years.

LED lighting, known for its energy efficiency, is utilized across the property, contributing to decreased energy use. Moreover, an intelligent system automatically shuts down lighting and electric devices when guests vacate their rooms, enhancing the energy-saving measures. The hotel's restaurant excels in serving organic meals, many of which are prepared from ingredients procured locally. As part of its commitment to a zero-waste approach, the hotel implements a robust waste management system that segregates waste into three or more categories. Additionally, composting is used for organic waste, further minimizing landfill contributions. Finally, an environmental manager oversees these initiatives, ensuring that employees are well-trained in implementing and maintaining the hotel's environmental policies.

AVATON
GreeceEurope > Greece > Aegean Islands > Cyclades > Folegandros
7.0
Good
Hotel Taking Steps Towards Sustainability
Set against a stunning seascape and tucked within a traditional olive grove, AVATON demonstrates a commendable commitment to eco-friendly practices. The hotel's credibility as an eco-conscious establishment is underscored by a broad range of sustainability certifications, including LEED Platinum and Green Key Global. Among the energy conservation measures it practices, the utilization of solar radiation as a renewable energy source is noteworthy.

An environmental ethos permeates every aspect of AVATON, from construction to operation. The property was built using sustainable materials and designed to maximize natural airflow and lighting, reducing the need for artificial air conditioning and lighting. Environmental measures such as triple glazing on windows for optimal insulation, and a commitment to various green initiatives including reforestation and wildlife protection, further highlight its dedication to sustainability. The hotel implements rainwater harvesting and uses non-toxic cleaning products. Emphasizing organic and locally-sourced produce, the restaurant also provides an alternative vegetarian menu. Noteworthy practices include LED lighting, wastewater treatment and reuse, the provision of electric vehicle charging stations, and a commitment to a zero-waste policy. It is heartening to note that AVATON has appointed an environmental manager and trains its staff to adhere strictly to environmental policies. Moreover, it has systems in place for guests to minimize their energy usage, such as key cards that switch off lights and appliances when they leave the room, and automatic systems for air conditioning and heating to turn off when windows are open.
