Mandarin Orchard Singapore Wins Green Hotel Award 2011

The Mandarin Orchard Singapore has won the Singapore Green Hotel at the recently-concluded Singapore Green Hotel Award presentation. The award seeks to recognise hotels that adopt environmentally-friendly practices.

The Mandarin Orchards' energy conservation measures include fitting lower wattage and higher efficiency light bulbs in all its 1,051 guest rooms, installing timers to dim or switch off lighting during off-peak periods and keeping the air-conditioning temperature at 24.5 degree celsius at public areas and staircases, as well as optimising the chiller plants and equipment in the hotel.

The green initiatives are also extended to all hotel guests and employees. Whilst guests are invited to participate in the campaign by reusing their towels, all staff are strongly encouraged to practise the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in their daily tasks, from cleaning guest rooms, setting up events to managing waste in the kitchens. Recycling bins are available on every guest floor at back of the house areas and the hotel uses environmentally-friendly products such as biodegradable cleaning agents, whenever possible.

John Sartain, General Manager of Mandarin Orchard Singapore was at the ceremony to receive the award from Singapore Hotel Association. “Corporate sustainability is a key priority to the hotel and we are indeed proud to receive this accolade, as a testament of this commitment,” said Sartain.

“At Mandarin Orchard Singapore, everyone has a role to play in saving the Earth and we will forge on with our dedication to environmental conservation whilst ensuring the guest experience remains uncompromised.”
