Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore Hotel achieves Green leaf Standard
The Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore Hotel through their partnership with Green Leaf Sustainability Services and their Think Planet and Living Responsible Business initiatives has achieved the coveted Green Leaf Eco Standard Core Certification.
Driven for sustainable change and environmental impact, the leadership at Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore embarked on the sustainability journey with the Green Leaf project to ensure that a lasting legacy remains in the region and that locals will be proud of the impact made by the group.
The standard was accomplished through various initiatives such as:
• Introducing low flow water showerheads in the guest rooms
• A lighting retrofit which included swopping out 1000s of High energy consuming Halogen Down lights with the significantly more efficient LED versions
• The building uses heat pumps to heat water which are up to ten times more efficient than boilers
• Key card systems are used in all rooms which switch off all lights and air conditioners when the room is unoccupied
• Responsible purchasing practices such as buying over 80% of its products from local suppliers were introduced
• Waste recycling project which reduces the amount of waste entering landfill
Park Inn Foreshore recognises the importance of getting the staff involved in reducing its impact on the environment by actively promoting sustainable business practices through their Think Planet and Responsible Business programs as well as ensuring all employees receive Responsible Business training to ensure full compliance and participation.
The Green Leaf™ Eco Standard is a global standard for measuring, managing and verifying sustainable business performance in an impartial manner. The Standard is designed to meet and exceed compliance with South African and international Codes of Good Practice and integrated reporting and is a blueprint for achieving a sustainable, profitable future that is “impact-neutral” and draws on the philosophy and 50-year track record in environmental leadership of its co-founder, the Wilderness Foundation.
