More on Novotel and Green Globe …

After the news on Hyderabad, I further researched on Novotel and its green approach, quite remarkable I must say …
Novotel began its involvement in the Green Globe certification programme in July 2007, through an initial pilot phase, at 28 hotels in 12 countries across five continents.
The countries involved were: the United Kingdom, Switzerland, France, Brazil, the Ivory Coast, India, China, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.
Today Novotel has six certified hotels: Novotel Sharm El Sheikh, Novotel Lyon Part Dieu, and Novotel London Tower Bridge, Novotel Shanghai Atlantis, Novotel Hyderabad and Novotel Benoa Bali.
Each hotel is assessed according to the eight performance criteria of the Green Globe certification programme.
By the end of 2008, the 28 pilot hotels in the Green Globe programme will have passed the assessment stages for their certification. Following this success, Novotel will move on to the second phase of its longterm commitment, by extending this certification process to all its hotels.

Great move, bravo !
