Strengthening their vision of building a more eco-friendly property through new techniques and commitments, Andaz Delhi – a concept by Hyatt, has introduced multiple initiatives since its inception, in a bid to build a more sustainable and eco-friendlier hotel.
Among the many sustainability commitments, the hotel has undertaken in recent times, Andaz Delhi has installed an on-site water plant that enables the hotel to provide their guests with sparkling freshwater that contains a zero-carbon footprint. The on-site water plant is estimated to save about 145 tonnes of plastic waste and 435 tonnes of carbon emissions over the next five years. They also have an on-site fully automated wet garbage composting machine that converts wet kitchen waste into dry compost in 24 hours, post which this compost is used in the hotel’s landscaping.
Having been awarded the LEED Gold Level Certification for their conscious electricity usage, the hotel is currently using two per cent Green Power produced by Solar plants as well as 60 per cent Green Power produced by Hydro plants, which helps in reducing the carbon footprint. Throughout the hotel, only 98 per cent of energy-efficient LED lights are used, which results in improved environmental performance of the hotel.
Furthermore, the hotel has adopted sustainable glass water bottles, replacing plastic bottles for each of their stylish rooms. It is estimated that this move will save about 145 tonnes of plastic waste and 435 tonnes of carbon emissions over the next five years.
Andaz Delhi is also a ‘zero discharge‘ building, i.e., they recycle all waste water generated in the hotel, and reuse it for their cooling towers landscaping as well as in their gardens. They also use highly-efficient chiller plants with VFD control, Air Handling Units (AHU) that control through VFD and contribute to making Andaz Delhi into a low power consumption building.
Along with this, the hotel also has multiple rainwater collection tanks, as well as rainwater harvesting pits and trenches which aid the environment by reducing soil erosion and the collected rainwater is also used in the hotel to promote recycling. Each day, the hotel strives to be better to the environment than before. These are some of the many sustainable steps that they have taken in the hopes of a greener, better tomorrow.
