Cape Town - Hotel Verde, by BON Hotels, Africa’s Greenest hotel, located at Cape Town International airport, and recently awarded its 4 star status continues their green initiatives in all things sustainable, to reach yet another milestone in their service offerings. They have partnered with impactChoice, provider of end-to-end environmental sustainability solutions, to offer guests and conference delegates a carbon neutral (guilt free) stay, by offsetting their carbon emissions via responsible carbon capturing/reduction projects.
Hotel Verde’s Sustainability Strategy, in particular with regards to energy efficiency is rigorous and being more energy and water efficient than most, makes it much easier for them to offer this carbon offsetting programme to their guests – the first HCMI (Hotel Carbon Management Initiative) implementation of its kind in Africa!
“We have committed to offsetting each guest’s stay or conference with us at no additional cost to the guest, taking straight from our bottom line.
This is another way of differentiating ourselves and adding value to our guests without compromising on guests’ comfort” says Mario Delicio, owner of Hotel Verde, who believes this to be a must-have offering from Hotel Verde.
So, what is carbon offsetting? To simplify just how much impact we as humans have on the environment, going about our daily lives, environmentalists have equated all impacts to one measurable yard stick: carbon emissions.
