In order to fulfill our social responsibility, we’re now placing environmental concerns at the forefront of our business activities. Therefore, we’re constantly taking actions that contribute to reducing the ecological footprint of our seven hotels for the benefit of present and future generations.
Our Environmental Efforts
Over the course of the last few years, many environmental actions have been taken in our seven establishments to initiate JARO Hotels & Services’ green shift.
SPECIFICALLY WE HAVE:
- Included a “green component” to the executive board’s agenda;
- Implemented recycling bins in most of our hotel rooms and function rooms;
- Reduced our daily paper consumption by encouraging electronic documents and by recycling scrap paper into notepads;
- Set the printers in the duplex printing;
- Replaced most of incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient bulbs;
- Installed water-efficient toilets in most of our hotel rooms;
- Installed soap and shampoo dispensers in every hotel room in order to reduce the use of plastic containers;
- Replaced paper coffee cups by ECOPRODUCTS biodegradable coffee cups certified COMPOST by BPI;
- Prioritized reusable dishes.
- Reduced the use of plastic straws and coffee stirrers to the minimum, we now only provide them on request.
