Auris Metro Central Hotel Apartments has been awarded Green Key certification in recognition of the notable green strategy and sustainable practices that have been implemented by TFG Asset Management at the building.
Green Key is a leading eco-label supported by the World Tourism Organisation (WTO) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which recognises hotels and other accommodation providers that are committed to sustainable practices as part of their daily operations.
To receive the certification, establishments must meet 100 criteria relating to staff involvement, environmental management, corporate social responsibility, water conservation, washing and cleaning, waste management, food and beverage, indoor environment, green areas, administration and transportation.
Overall, the implementation of energy and water conservation measures has helped reduce Auris Metro Central’s energy bill by 10.5%. Notable conservation measures include the installation of LEDs in corridors, chilled water flow optimisation, and kitchen exhaust fan control.
Birthe Bolz, General Manager of Auris Metro Central Hotel Apartments, welcomed the certification. “Receiving the Green Key certificate is testament to the hard work of our hotel team, and well-crafted strategies that enhance our green credentials. We are committed to implementing new practices that will not only positively impact the environment but also enable our property to reduce costs by reducing energy and water consumption and disposing of waste effectively.”
