Macao Green Hotel Awards were recently conferred on 15 local properties in recognition of their efforts to adopt eco-friendly practices and reduce their carbon emissions, according to a statement from one of the organisers, the Environmental Protection Bureau (also known by its Portuguese initials DSPA). 

The top prize or gold award went to seven hotels: the Four Seasons, Galaxy, the Grand Hyatt, the Parsian, the Harbourview Hotel, MGM Cotai and the Venetian. 

Hotel Grand Lisboa and the Beverly Plaza, meanwhile, earned a silver award, while Grandview, the Inn Hotel and Hotel Rocks bagged bronze. New Orient Landmark Hotel also managed to win a merit prize.

According to DSPA, the awardees have been actively complying with the government’s environmental protection policy over the course of many years and have set carbon reduction targets. 

Some hotels have adopted a green architectural design that makes use of more natural light, the bureau said, while others stopped offering single-use toiletries in guest rooms. Other properties have tried to lessen their carbon footprints by utilising renewable energy and gradually increasing their electric vehicle charging stations. 

Inaugurated in 2007, the Macao Green Hotel Awards have grown significantly in size over the years and are aimed at bringing about a “low carbon Macao.”
