About 50 hotels in the project of "green" hotels - Sustainable hotel & spa by UPUHH

Source: UPUHH

In September this year, the Croatian Hotel Entrepreneurs Association will start recertifying UPUHH members who were certified through the 2014, 2015, and 2016 projects with the Sustainable hotel & spa by UPUHH certificate.

UPUHH started the project in July 2013 after the Association studied in detail the existing green certificates, such as Friend of Nature, Travelife, Blaue Angel, etc., and then defined the green criteria for hotels.

The criteria are very precisely developed for a total of nine groups, namely: sustainability management, procurement, sales, marketing and PR, environment, energy efficiency, human resources and technical service, and the project was implemented in several phases. The certificate has been expanded with three additional criteria: safety and insurance, corporate social responsibility and F&B.

As they point out from UPUHH, in the first phase, workshops were organized for registered hotels and field audits were conducted, where each hotel had to appoint its representative, the so-called green coordinator, for whom the first cycle of workshops was intended. Workshops were organized and after audits, teams of verified auditors, in cooperation with the staff of each hotel and prepared detailed reports with collected data on energy and water consumption, waste type, CO2 emissions, GHG inventory, etc., each hotel was offered specific savings proposals for each segment.

Green coordinators, appointed by the hotel, were educated on the development of the action plan, environmental management policy, staff involvement, etc. In the second phase, the hotels had to implement the project and ensure the implementation of the action plan for three to five months. in addition, a second cycle of workshops was organized to analyze the results achieved.

The second set of workshops, in addition to the green coordinators, was intended to educate housewives, technical staff, procurement and sales staff as well as other services in the hotel. Upon completion of the project, hotels and spas were awarded "Sustainable hotels and spas by UPUHH" certificates, point out from UPUHH.

If there’s one trend that stays, it’s ecology and green hotels. For more information on the new certification cycle, contact us directly UPUHH
