At the recent “ASEAN Green Hotel Award” held during the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2010 in Brunei on 25th January 10 Indonesian hotels were awarded the “Asean Green Hotel Award” by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Brunei.

The winning hotels are recognized for their outstanding efforts in environmental conservation as all passed the rigorous selection criteria for the award.
“Our hotel has over the past years consciously invested in green technology and creating awareness within the team and with our guest, as such it is with particular pride that I can accept the award on the team and owners’ behalf. We will continue our endeavors to excel in environmental conscious and responsible management and appreciate the importance and recognition the ASEAN organization attributes to this” said Bollen.
“The ASEAN Green Hotel” awards hotels who are environmentally-friendly and adopt energy conservation measures complying with 11 major criteria. Energy and water efficiency, environmental policy, actions at hotel operations level, use of green products, collaboration with the community and local organizations, and practice of sustainable eco-tourism are taken into account. The hotels must be environment friendly minimize any form of pollution or have an adverse impact on the environment.
“Green Hotels” are environmentally-friendly properties whose managers are eager to institute programs that save water, energy and reduce solid waste—while saving money—to help PROTECT OUR ONE AND ONLY EARTH!, as quoted by the “Green” hotel Association. The Green Hotel Standard is not only environmentally sound but equally makes economic sense.
