Honouring the eco-friendly ones
The hospitality industry has the new mantra of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to influence real change.
Aiming to act as a catalyst, a Green Hotel Conference set the tone for bringing about real, measurable and visible changes in environment conservation.
Held at Melhua The Fern on June 7, 2013, the gathering saw a healthy mix of travel, hotel and industry stalwarts. They conferred the title of ‘Green Champion’ on Viren Merchant and Shrikrishna Bhagwat, who founded the Advanced Locality Management (ALM) in Mumbai in the 90s, while noted painter, cartoonist and national award-winning author Aabid Surti earned this title for his outstanding work for water conservation through his NGO Drop Dead.
Param Kannampilly, CMD, Concept Hospitality Pvt Ltd, said, “Protecting the environment is part of our company’s brand commitment.” The Melhua Team highlighted the strict Ecotel standards observed by the hotel with a short skit and gave the message of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
