Green Globe announced certification of the Mövenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva in Switzerland. The hotel is situated on the banks of the largest lake in Continental Western Europe, Lake Geneva, at the foot of the Jura Mountains and the Alps, only 15 minutes from Geneva City Center.
Mövenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva’s success with sustainable certification lies in its core values to always conduct business in a responsible and caring way.
Guido Bauer, Green Globe Certification’s CEO, said: “What is incredible about the Mövenpick Hotel Geneva is the high motivation of the staff at all levels of the company to reduce the hotel’s ecological footprint and implement their sustainability management plan.”
“The hotel has distinguished loyalty and motivation programs in place to foster a culture that consistently improves employee engagement, development, wellbeing, safety, and security. Mövenpick’s excellence in human resource management embraces and celebrates diversity. The Mövenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva has 39 nationalities working together in harmony,” added Mr. Bauer.
Alain Luzeau, Chief Engineer of the hotel and head of the hotel’s Sustainable Committee, commented: “Among all actions that have helped us to demonstrate our commitment towards sustainability, our partnership with Geneva Red Cross is the one we are particularly proud of; along a series of events that we have organized throughout the year, we have been able to raise CHF 13,500 for the Geneva Red Cross.”
The Mövenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva offers airport shuttle service at guests’ disposal and encourages the use of public transportation to get to Geneva, offering a transportation card valid for the whole trip to all clients. Most products are purchased locally, and bath amenities are produced by Germany-based ADA Cosmetics, known for their ecological lines and Ecolabel certifications.
The Mövenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva attracts travelers from around the world, for business and leisure. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful nature and historical heritage, such as the Lake Geneva, the Mont Blanc, Chillon Castle, and the vineyards of the lake coast. More than 80 buildings and sites in Geneva are listed as Swiss heritage sites of national significance, and the entire old city of Geneva is part of the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inventory_of_Swiss_Heritage_Sites ).
