Five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon wins best Environmental Sustainability Project of the Year 2015 award for its energy efficient hotel project
Five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was named winner of the Environmental Sustainability Project of the Year 2015 by the Portuguese Association of Hospitality and Restaurants (AHRESP), for its outstanding energy efficient hotel project.
This is the first year that the prestigious Portuguese Association of Hospitality and Restaurants (AHRESP), the largest business association in Portugal which dates back 119 years, has held such awards, which aim to recognize and reward excellence across Portugal’s tourism industry. Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was among the final shortlist of five nominees for the Environmental Sustainability category, and was chosen as Portugal’s Best Environmental Sustainable project by online voting.
On the importance of energy efficiency and sustainable eco-practices, General Manager Reuben Misfud comments “as our guests – both individual leisure guests and corporate clients organizing large-scale conferences at the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon – become more concerned and informed about sustainability, they increasingly scrutinize the eco-practices that we run here. Our passion for hospitality drives us to improve and address the challenges of our time. This is why, in 2007, we started developing tailor-made engineering solutions with state-of-the-art equipment, meaning we can now offer high levels of performance on energy efficiency and we are able to produce energy autonomously. Our extensive sustainability project has so far allowed us to improve our energy consumption profile from a 9.3GWh per year to 7.28GWh per year reducing our carbon footprint by up to 1.341/ton.”
Corinthia Hotel Lisbon’s Energy Efficient Hotel project was implemented in partnership with Galp Soluções de Energia and Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade (ISQ), which developed innovative energy solutions to meet the hotel’s needs. The water reservoirs, the heat exchangers and the energy management system were designed according to the hotel energy profile.
