SANYA, CHINA—The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya has received two accolades for its commitment to running and operating an environmentally conscious hotel: The Gold Leaf Grade “China Green Hotel” and the “Top 10 Green Hotel Room.” These awards were given to the hotel by the National Green Hotel Committee and China Hotel Association. The awards are the highest certifications for recognizing a hotel’s contribution toward environmental conservation, greening programss, food safety and hygiene, and energy efficiency.
Continuing The Ritz-Carlton brand’s longstanding Community Footprint and Give Back Getaway activity, The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya has established a long-term program based on environment protection. It embraces the “reduce, reuse, recycle” philosophy in order to minimize the amount of waste sent to landfill; this is achieved through a combination of garbage sorting and temperature controlling, maximizing new technology and innovative practices to conserve energy, including a guestroom energy management system which intelligently manages guestroom lighting and air-conditioning to ensure its highly efficient operation.
In addition, the hotel reduces the use of water thanks to a sewage disposal system and has implemented solar energy technology. A further highlight is the Uncle Martin’s Secret Garden which was built by Martin Li, the director of engineering, which offers guests the opportunity to plant organic vegetables.
The Green Hotel Award was presented for energy and resources savings, resource protection and food safety. With a strong commitment to the environment and saving resources, the hotel employs technology that makes more efficient energy use possible.
