Let’s Go Green!

[Cebu City] January 31, 2022— At the recent ASEAN Tourism Forum in Cambodia, City of Dreams Manila’s three Forbes-rated hotels – Nüwa Manila, Nobu Hotel, and Hyatt Regency bagged the 2022 Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Green Hotel Award.

The ASEAN Green Hotel Awards for the City of Dreams Manila’s hotels acknowledge that their operations are centered on achieving sustainable tourism through environmentally friendly principles, reduced resource consumption, and local community participation.

The ASEAN Green Hotel Award recognizes hotel businesses that adhere to the Asean Green Hotel Standard, a certification process that aims to meet a set of 11 criteria that promote sustainable tourism practices, which hotel businesses “should aspire to reach to protect and sustain Asean’s natural and cultural resources while ensuring tourism meets its potential as a tool for conservation and poverty alleviation”.

The criteria consist of: environmental policy and action for hotel operation; use of green products; collaboration with the community and local organizations; human resource development; solid waste management; energy efficiency; water efficiency; air quality management (indoor and outdoor); noise pollution control; wastewater treatment and management; and toxic and chemical substance disposal management.

The hotels in City of Dreams Manila: Nüwa Manila, Nobu Hotel, and Hyatt Regency Manila, participate in a variety of environmental and CSR projects geared towards contributing to a more sustainable future and the upliftment of communities they serve:

  • The luxury integrated resort’s numerous green initiatives are focused on renewable energy and other initiatives on energy efficiency, being the first integrated resort in the country to install solar panels. 
  • Water conservation projects including reuse of treated gray water, plastic waste reduction with the replacement of single-use plastic bottles in hotel rooms with reusable and refillable, convenient pump bottles, and sustainable sourcing in its supply chain, are among the many sustainable initiatives that contribute to its goal of being a carbon-neutral and zero-waste resort by 2030.
  •  A strong spirit of volunteerism fuels the hotel staff along with other colleagues, in various CSR, environmental, health, and education programs

“It is an honor to our commitment to the highest standards of sustainable operations and CSR initiatives that our three hotels are recognized with this prestigious award. Practicing sustainable tourism even during these unprecedented times echoes the ‘Above and Beyond’ vision of our parent company, Melco Resorts and Entertainment (Melco) on our long-term and comprehensive sustainability strategy,” City of Dreams Manila Property President Geoff Andres said.
