Sustainability plays an increasingly vital role in today’s hospitality industry, with more and more travelers looking for environmentally and socially responsible products and services. Organizations implementing responsible, sustainable practices stand out as a more attractive option for environmentally conscious travelers. PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore, is an excellent example of such an organization, with the hotel dedicated to delivering a guest experience that also cares for the environment.
Conveniently situated in the central business district within Marina Bay, the 583-room hotel is dedicated to integrating eco-friendly practices into every aspect of the business. This holistic approach includes efficiently managing water and energy usage, food and plastic waste, and carbon emissions to minimize environmental impact. The socially conscious traveler can enjoy a host of sustainability touches cleverly integrated throughout their stay.
The hotel embarked on its sustainability journey with a rejuvenate over reconstruct approach, preserving the indoor atrium that is the hallmark of neo-futuristic architect John Portman. This prevented over 51,300 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere, equivalent to destroying 8.7 million trees – an area greater than all of Singapore’s nature reserves combined.
There are 210 solar panels installed on the hotel roof, producing about 350-kilowatt hours of clean, renewable energy daily. The renewable energy powers the hotel lifts and emergency lighting, reducing the hotel’s overall electrical consumption by about 1.4%. A low-emissivity skylight filters plenty of natural daylight into the hotel. All glass is double-glazed, and chiller fans are run at a lower speed to conserve energy.
Motion sensors have been installed in all guest rooms and public areas, enabling intelligent temperature control and efficient energy use. These sensors power down lights and air conditioning in the guest rooms when no guest presence is detected. The in-room water filtration system and the provision of glass bottles obviate the need for plastic water bottles, eliminating the carbon impact of producing and waste processing of up to 360,000 single-use plastic bottles a year. Low-flow showerheads have been installed in the bathrooms to reduce water flow, and pumps are run at a low pressure to help reduce water consumption.
PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore is also home to one of the district’s largest urban farms. Spanning 150 square meters, the urban farm boasts more than 60 varieties of fruit, vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers. The urban farm exemplifies the hotel’s farm-to-table, farm-to-bar and farm-to-spa concepts. The output of the urban farm contributes to food supply resilience by providing about 20% of the hotel’s requirements. The urban farm also reduces the reliance on food imports and, therefore, the knock-on carbon emissions from transportation. Produce is harvested at peak ripeness so that guests can enjoy maximum freshness.
The hotel also reduces food waste by recycling vegetables, poultry, bones, eggshells, and fruit peel. A pair of energy-efficient food waste digesters use active enzymes to break down food waste into a liquid that can be safely disposed of.
The hotel is certified with ISO14001:2015 Environment Management System and BCA Green Mark Gold Certification. The impressive range of green practices in place at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore, clearly demonstrates the hotel’s commitment to climate action. This is why the experts at Luxury Lifestyle Awards have selected PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore, for an International Sustainable Award 2023. A well-deserved tribute to a company leading the way in sustainability in the hospitality industry.
