In acknowledgement of the Peninsula All-Suite Hotel's ongoing dedication to environmental responsibility, it has been awarded a Gold Heritage Environmental Certificate. The Heritage Certificate Programme is an effective environmental management system designed to reduce the impact that tourism-based businesses have on their environment and surrounding communities.
"We are proud of our heritage status as the growth of tourism ultimately is dependent on sustainability. How we manage our environmental footprint, both as a city and in the hotel industry, will determine the future of Cape Town as a desirable destination," says Peninsula Hotel general manager Chris Godenir.
The Peninsula's in-house Green Team is committed to including the local Atlantic Seaboard community in hotel initiatives to encourage a collective environmental responsibility. Regular beach clean-ups of Sea Point beaches will be just one of the initiatives that the hotel staff participates in, all of which will positively influences the experiences of local residents and visiting tourists.
For the 67 minutes of service for Nelson Mandela Day on 18 July, the Peninsula staff, under the guidance of the Green Team, initiated the first beach clean-up and all public participation were welcome to preserve the areas' beautiful beaches.
