Implementing responsible practices of minimizing waster across hospitality industry, Crowne Plaza Greater Noida has initiated substantial efforts towards sustainability by commissioning a Zero Mile Artisanal Water Plant that is IoT enabled and is programmed on Artificial-Intelligence technology.
This FSSAI approved sustainable plant was launched in partnership with Swajal WaterCube, with aim to replace single use plastic water bottles with sustainable glass water bottles for the guests.
It is estimated that this move will save about 86,695 Kg single-use plastic bottles and 2, 60,087 kg carbon emission over the next five years. This is the same amount of energy required to run a 60-watt light bulb for 4,868 years. This plant is an initiative by IHG Hotels & Resorts and supported by the hotel as a pilot project in the region, contributing towards IHGs Journey to Tomorrow commitments.
“The team at Crowne Plaza Greater Noida had pledged to substantially reduce our carbon footprint, as well as reducing single use items across our hotel. Whilst the unfortunate circumstances due to the Covid-19 pandemic may have created unprecedented challenges, but our commitment has never wavered, and we continued to work towards our vision of Green Engagement. I am happy that a milestone has been achieved and not only will we be announcing some more initiative about work that we’ve continued doing for these past few years, but we also hope to inspire other hotels to continue their own efforts towards sustainability”, said Ashwani Nayar, General Manager, Crowne Plaza Greater Noida.
