International Sustainable Awards has chosen PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore in 2023, as a recipient of the ISA, for their admirable range of ‘green’ innovations, and the country’s first “garden-in-a-hotel”.
The hotel takes a holistic approach to successfully achieving its green goals, taking measures to tackle water usage, energy waste, food, and plastic waste, as well as carbon management, positively impacting nature and society. It is also constantly investigating ways for greater integration of sustainability into the business in its quest to lead the way as a responsible global citizen.
During construction, the hotel rejuvenated its indoor, sky-lit atrium, preventing over 51,300 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere with reconstruction. Chiller fans run at a lower speed to conserve energy, and there are 210 solar panels on the roof, which produce renewable energy.
PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore is also home to a large, rooftop Urban Farm, providing a vast selection of food types for the hotel. The farm provides nearly 20% of the hotel’s food supply, reducing its reliance on food imports and the resulting carbon emissions from transportation. The hotel also successfully recycles its food waste.
Guest rooms come complete with water filtration systems and glass bottles, low-flow showerheads reduce water usage, and water pumps run at low pressure to reduce water consumption. In-room motion sensors intelligently manage lighting and cooling to save energy.
