To ensure that all hotels attain high standards of environmental custodianship in both front-end and back-end processes, Jetwing Hotels has initiated a process of compiling Green Directories for each Hotel.

The framework for this process was introduced under the guidance of environmental consultant – Dr. Sriyanie Miththapala. These procedures are standardized and each hotel has to identify its performance under certain measurement criteria and address its shortcomings. Routine internal audit are carried out to monitor and track performance in a timely manner.

The following key performance areas are highlighted.

  • Energy conservation
  • Water conservation
  • Waste water management
  • Solid waste management
  • Air quality management and reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases
  • Prevention of chemical pollution
  • Using environmentally-friendly materials
  • Environmentally-friendly purchasing
  • Health and eco-consciousness
  • Landscaping
  • Corporate social responsibility

The Green Directories allow customers, tour operators, media and other stakeholders to evaluate the hotel’s performance. Jetwing Hotels hopes that this transparent process, which is subject to auditable criteria, will become a role model for other hotels.
