Corinthia to implement Water Saving Recommendations
Minister de Marco welcomed Corinthia’s latest environmental initiative – the implementation of a water savings programme in all its Malta hotels, which is estimated to save 2,669,000 litres of water every year.
Commenting on the Corinthia Group’s initiative, Minister de Marco said that Government, tourism operators and stakeholders are working together towards strengthening the sustainability of the tourism industry. The participation of 70 businesses and hotels in the EU LIFE+ Investing in Water coordinated by MBB, the Malta Chamber and MHRA, shows the commitment and cooperation of Government, tourism operators and stakeholders in strengthening the sustainability of the tourism industry.
Paul Bugeja, Corinthia Hotels’ chief financial officer, explained that all 600 rooms and back of house areas at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay and the Marina Hotel, are being fitted with water restrictors. These are devices that ensure an optimal water flow by suppressing excessive delivery of water.
