Tempo Hotel Bucharest, an award-winning 3-star hotel located in the Bucharest city center, has signed an agreement with ALLCOT to measure, reduce and offset its annual carbon emissions.
In 2015, Tempo Hotel Bucharest was responsible for generating 105tnsC02eq tCO2e (metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent), mainly from heating and electricity consumption. Measuring its footprint, trying to reduce it and offsetting its unavoidable greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions constitute only a part of this considerate hotel’s sustainability strategy.
Now, ALLCOT is going to calculate the emissions of 2016 and will make a comparison with the previous year to draw conclusions and develop a best practice plan, to be implemented and executed by all hotel employees. Usually this reports up to a 4~5% annual reduction. Also, ALLCOT will develop a long term reduction plan, based on the info provided by the hotel (electricity, fuel consumptions, management trips, lights, heater, etc.). Savings will depend on the amount of new implantations developed and installed. And, in the meantime, the hotel will offset the unavoidable emissions year after year.
“This CO2 emissions reduction target is part of our policy to increase our guests’ comfort and satisfaction with our services. As hoteliers, we think that it’s very important to be considerate about the environment and the society at large. When guests know that the hotel offsets their business or holiday-related carbon footprint, then their stay at our hotel becomes guilt-free and thus more attractive. We preferred to partner with ALLCOT in our sustainability journey to reduce and offset our carbon emissions, and more importantly, to help our guests reflect upon preserving our planet” says Gulen HASHMI & Cristina SOLOMON, the senior management team at Tempo Hotel Bucharest.
“ALLCOT is delighted to be partnering with Tempo on their sustainability journey that is targeting zero emissions with reduced operational costs. Romanian market is a clear strategic objective of ours, so this collaboration is very exciting for us to be involved with”, says Alexis L. Leroy, CEO of ALLCOT.
The carbon zero emissions strategy of Tempo has been implemented in Romania with the help of Carbon Expert, which is an official ALLCOT partner for Eastern Europe.
“We have decided to promote ALLCOT sustainability projects to reduce CO2 emissions in this part of Europe. I am glad that Tempo has chosen to act responsibly to reduce and neutralize their emissions and I hope other responsible hotels and companies will follow”, says Casiana Fometescu, Carbon Expert.
