Hyatt Regency Delhi powers up for an eco-friendly future, sets up in-house water bottling plant and electric charging points for cars
With an aim to reduce their carbon footprint, Hyatt Regency Delhi is the first of many to be a plastic-free hotel and to introduce e-charging stations for electric cars
As the world wakes up to the burning need to save our planet from the effects of climate change, the incorporation of sustainable business practices and reduction of single use plastic waste is vital. In the fight towards eliminating plastic waste and ensuring a more sustainable carbon footprint, Hyatt Regency Delhi has announced the launch of its own in-house water bottling plant and to introduce e-charging stations for electric cars, making it one of the first few hotels in India to take this stride.
A plastic-free hotel
Environment-friendly measures are being adopted by many industries, and the growing hospitality industry recognises its critical role in shouldering this responsibility as well. The fully-automated water bottling plant at Hyatt Regency Delhi endeavours to eradicate approximately 1.08 million plastic bottles a year, by making the switch to reusable glass bottles! This process saves 28 tons of plastic waste every year.
A specially constructed sterile room, equipped with the latest machinery has been constructed within a record two and a half months. There are several health and sanitation checks in this process to ensure pure, distilled water for the patrons of Hyatt Regency Delhi. This fully automated plant can produce up to 500 bottles of water per hour. The glass bottles are thoroughly rinsed and hygienically cleaned with hot water, post which they are sterilised with UV machines. Simultaneously, in a separate 500-litre tank, water is passed through a separate UV machine and 0.45-micron filter, to ensure that it is fit for drinking. These newly sterilised glass bottles are then filled with pure drinking water and sealed shut with caps. This bottling process is void of human contact starting from the washing of these bottles, right down to their capping, ensuring utmost efficiency.
This landmark initiative by Hyatt Regency Delhi is the first of many, in its goal towards greater environmental accountability and its aspiration to be a plastic-free hotel. Being one of the very few hotels in India to have their in-house water bottling plants, Hyatt Regency Delhi continues to push the needle towards its quest to establish green business practices. The power of a million is a sustainable promise, keeping in mind the best interests of its patrons and our beautiful planet!
Electric charging points for electric cars
The market for electric cars is growing rapidly, with them being increasingly used for holiday and business trips. With global warming becoming a severe issue, consumers have become aware of the need to embrace renewable energy and are looking for alternatives for everything in their day to day lives to become more environmentally conscious. To provide a solution to the growing need of car charging points for electric cars and to propagate and encourage a sustainable and healthy lifestyle for their guests, Hyatt Regency Delhi has become one of the few hotels to introduce e-charging stations for electric cars.
With an aim to reduce their carbon footprint and enable Electric vehicle owners to use their electric cars, Hyatt Regency Delhi has adopted this green transport technology measure as a part of their sustainability initiative. 10 e-charging stations are currently available at the hotel and each one of them takes about 8-10 hours to fully charge any car.
The availability of a place to charge a car is the deciding factor for an electric car driver’s choice of hotel or restaurant. With their e-charging stations, Hyatt Regency Delhi hopes to motivate people to use electrical vehicles and embrace an environmentally conscious lifestyle.
