STAY FOR THE PLANET

porcreo
 
The Hotel has completed the project for the Systems Energy Redevelopment with the achievement of the set objectives of energy saving and low carbon emissions. The project was co-financed on the POR CREO FESR 2014-2020 announcement: towards a low carbon economy in all sectors "Announcement: Aid for energy efficiency projects for buildings - New Call 2017"


What is it?

By joining the LifeGate project this hotel commits to managing its activities in a sustainable manner by monitoring consumption rates, taking actions towards energy efficiency and reducing its environmental impact through responsible behaviour.

How does it work

A SUSTAINABILITY RATING assigned by LifeGate’s Scientific Committee. The five leaf rating system calculates the hotel’s environmental performance score based on five different areas of impact.

SUSTAINABILITY RATING

ENERGY: sources and consumption of electricity and heating, energy efficiency of buildings and equipment.

WATER: sources and consumption of electricity and heating, energy efficiency of buildings and equipment.

WASTE: waste type and production, waste management and prevention measures.

PURCHASES: low impact supplies of raw materials, service products and durable materials.

BEHAVIOURS: organisation of suppliers’ logistics, staff and customer mobility management, creation of awareness initiatives for guests and links to sustainable local initiatives.

 

MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

IN YOUR ROOM

  • If you can, take the stairs instead of the lift: you can save 0.05 kW for every trip and… Get some exercise.
  • Save energy, yours and that of your electronic devices: "rest" your lights (if you don’t need them) and unplug your phone and computer charger when they’re fully charged, otherwise they consume more.
  • Beware of the temperature: in winter for every additional degree centigrade, 334 kg of CO2 are emitted annually. In summer, the maximum difference between the inside and the outside temperature mustn’t exceed 6°C in order to maintain a healthy environment.

IN THE BATHROOM

  • When you brush your teeth remember to close the tap and to use a glass to rinse: it’s easier and allows you to save water.
  • A shower is "eco" if it’s brief: up to 60 litres are consumed in five minutes...
  • ... And if you can, regulate the temperature beforehand: to obtain 40-45°C water up to 15% is wasted!
