Into its second year running, the award recognises environmentally-friendly hotels which have taken significant strides in adopting green practices. Winning hotels were deemed to have performed exceptionally well in the areas of solid waste management, energy efficiency, water efficiency, air quality management as well as toxic and chemical substance disposal.
