Sustainability

Many hotel brands continue to take steps to make travel experiences more sustainable — removing individual toiletries from guestrooms, swapping bottled water for carafes and replacing plastic keycards with alternatives. However, Accor Hotels takes things to the next level, bringing guests what it calls “the first truly sustainable bottled drinking water.”

 

So, what makes this water so special?

 

The water is sourced from the air, using solar-powered technology that harvests in-air water vapors, transforming them into safe, sustainable, readily available drinkable water, then packaged in reusable glass. The technology uses SOURCE Hydropanels, a SOURCE Global product that only requires air and sunlight to operate; each solar-powered panel can produce enough air-derived water over its lifetime to replace 50,000 plastic bottles of water.

 

For the time being, the ultra-sustainable water will only be available at Accor Hotels properties in Singapore. Nigel Moore, senior vice president of food and beverage, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, Accor Hotels, called the new offering an “incredible solution.”

 

Moore said, “This partnership was a natural extension of the work we are doing to ensure our hotels operate more sustainably and make a positive impact on the communities in which we are present.”
