Radisson Blu Martinez Beirut reduces energy usage
95% of the hotel's regular light bulbs replaced with LED bulbs
Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel Beirut has completed the first milestone in its ‘Think Planet’ initiative – a five year plan that aims to achieve a 25% energy reduction across all Rezidor groups in 70 countries with a 5% energy consumption reduction every year.
“We are so proud of the achievement,” said Konstantinos Kourotsidis, general manager at Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel Beirut.
In its first year, the hotel replaced 95% of its regular light bulbs with LED bulbs and new kitchen equipment was installed to help reduce electricity consumption.
Staff training sessions on smart energy saving habits in housekeeping, kitchen and meeting areas and at home took place.
“Taking such steps might sound costly to implement but in the long run it is the right investment for any corporation," added Kourotsidis.
Radisson Blu Martinez is the first hotel in Lebanon to be given the ‘Environmental Achievement Certificate’ by the Ministry of Environment.
