EarthCheck Silver certification for The Mandala Hotel, Berlin

The Mandala Hotel EarthCheck Silver certificate
Design Hotels™ has congratulated The Mandala Hotel in Berlin for being awarded Europe’s first EarthCheck Silver certification for sustainable tourism. Advocating mindful movement around the world, the initiative Design Hotels™ is Finding Infinity takes homespun inspiration to share with its global Community.

In two lifetimes the planet will run out of the finite resources such as fossil fuels, coal and petroleum we’ve become so dependent on. But in one lifetime we have the opportunity to turn this around. Together with core partnerships including Finding Infinity and EarthCheck, Design Hotels™ aims to simplify environmental responsibility through exceptional design, knowledgeable guidance and an emphasis on local sourcing.

After an exhaustive implementation and audit period, The Mandala Hotel can proudly claim its Silver certification from EarthCheck, the leading international benchmarking and certification program for sustainable travel and tourism. Solidifying their claims of a zero waste hotel, this milestone both cements the hotel’s progress and sets forth the path for even greater goals.

With the appointment of an internal Green Team, simple ideas have been turned into tangible actions and accomplishments. The hotel will continue with its commitment to reduce greenhouse emissions, the management of freshwater resources, solid waste and water management and the usage of environmentally sustainable and locally-sourced fair-trade products. The hotel will also commit to using 100% green electricity starting in 2015.
