Hotel Guests Demand Sustainable Hospitality

Recently, I came across an article in Environmental Leader, Sustainable Hospitality on the Rise as Guest Demand Heightens.  It was so gratifying to read how hotel guests are demanding sustainable hospitality!

182376201In 2004, I financed and launched URBN Hotel, recognizing the serious pollution problem in China, and the need for sustainable solutions. Occupying a converted factory warehouse, URBN was China’s first carbon-neutral hotel and proudly uses recycled and locally-sourced materials. The hotel has earned multiple awards, including “Hotel with Lowest Carbon Theme Design” from <T+> Magazine and “China’s Best Environmental Hotel” from Voyage magazine.

In addition, Cachet Hotels & Resorts, our Hong Kong-based management company, is a socially responsible and innovative hospitality company. Cachet Hotels & Resorts participates in the Strawless Ocean initiative and has joined Bacardi and Lonely Whale, the award-winning non-profit dedicated to positively impacting the health of our oceans, in the global movement against single-use plastic. #TheFutureDoesntSuck was launched in July with a goal of permanently removing one billion single-use plastic straws by the year 2020.

I’m proud of Cachet’s efforts to further enhance sustainable hospitality and place social responsibility at the core of its business model.
