The management at Best Western CTC Hotel Verona is especially committed to promoting environmental sustainability by encouraging widespread responsibility among guests and staff members and by trying to implement sustainable daily activities.
We feel that it is possible to combine the comforts of a 4-star hotel with environmental commitment, and also to reduce the consumption of valuable resources such as water. Environmental sustainability is a long journey that leads to consistent and significant goals over time and through team effort rather than individual effort.
We strongly believe that encouraging sustainable practices generates added value for the customer, and that adopting sustainability as a guiding philosophy in hospitality is essential to the preservation of the environment and the promotion of corporate social responsibility.
In 2013 the Best Western CTC Hotel Verona joined the project “Stay for the Planet”, a program designed to determine the degree of sustainability of the Hotel by monitoring the management of 5 key elements: Energy, Water, Waste, Purchasing and Behaviors.
To date, the Hotel has been awarded 3 out of 5 possible leaves, and we are sure that the unfaltering commitment and the strong motivation to improve that have been driving us throughout this journey, offer the appropriate incentive to pursue more efficient environmental policies.
Thanks to the groundbreaking partnership with LifeGate, the Hotel submits periodic reports on the main environmental indicators, recording an improvement of overall CO2 emissions, optimization of water resources management in relation to services and decreased energy consumption.
Our conscious actions:
- Purchase analysis and control aimed at reducing waste
- Implementation of water conservation systems
- Use of energy efficient light bulbs
- Organic selections at our breakfast buffet
- Promotion of Public Transportation systems
Our Hotel is also committed to raising awareness among guests, staff and suppliers to ensure that everybody is involved in the process of environmental sustainability.
