Novotel is the 1st Green Globe Hotel in Hyderabad ...and not the last green hotel of Accor !

Novotel Hyderabad , from the famous Accor Hotel Group, has just announed to have gotten the Green Globe Certified status under the global Certification programme.

There were 8 criteria looked at such as better waste management, less pollution, and energy and water consumption control.

The benchmarking period lasted for about six months, and the same process will be repeated every year as a maintenance for the criteria.

“We are indeed excited about being the first ever hotel in the city to be Green Globe certified. We chose to demonstrate our commitment to the environment by undertaking Certification - the highest level of the Green Globe programme. The successful completion of the Certification process demonstrates Novotel Hyderabad’s strong commitment to the principles of environmental sustainability. Increasingly organisations are becoming more and more conscious of eco-friendly procedures and are seeking to be associated only with like-minded partners. I am confident that the sustainable development programme at Novotel Hyderabad will offer us an unprecedented edge,”

What is more important is that, by 2010, 100% of Novotel hotels will be participating in the Green Globe environmental certification programme. Novotel has over 410 hotels in the world.

It won’t be wrong to term Hyderabad as one of the most culturally rich places in India. Be it the legacy of the very famous Nawabs, the colorful streets, the exhilarating monuments or the mouthwatering and delicious Hyderabadi food, especially Hyderabadi Biriyani, this south Indian city has always been a hot shot tourist destination. The industrial and infrastructural development in this city in the recent years has only been the icing on the cake. Today the hotels in Hyderabad not only cater to the tourists but also to the business and corporate traveler. There are many business hotels in Hyderabad that are being dished out by the leading names of the Indian hospitality industry. Apart from the budget hotels in Hyderabad, luxury hotels are also abundant in the city. In short be it for work or an existing vacation, hotels catering to each class can be found in the city. With so much happening in this future metro, Hyderabad is actually the place to be!
