Amatra Hotels Eyes Zero Waste, Sustainable Hospitality

12th Nov.2019, New Delhi– India: Amatra Hotels and Resorts, the luxury

hospitality brand has initiated a plan to become a zero-waste and sustainable

hospitality company in the coming years.

The Malaysia-based luxury hotel chain operator is also looking to implement

Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s vision to eradicate single-use

plastic by 2022 in all their properties.

It is looking at a reduction of 150 Kg/Year of single-use plastic in Financial Year

2020-21 and with seven properties expected to be added in its portfolio, the

total reduction will be about 750 kg of single-use plastic.

Amatra’s vision is to move towards “Zero Waste Concept” which will ensure

zero discharge of hotel waste that is hazardous to land, water or air when

burnt or buried. Amatra is introducing biodegradable packaging for its in-room

amenities in-line with GOI’s initiative against single-use plastic. 

To ensure there is no food wastage among its properties, the hospitality firm

would convert a large amount of food waste into organic manure.

Moreover, to reduce its emissions, Amatra is also planning to increase the

contribution of solar and other renewable energies into its regular energy

requirements, this also includes investing in rooftop solar plants on its

properties to meet a sizeable amount of its energy needs.

“India is moving ahead in the global hierarchy and is eyeing to be a leader in

reducing its carbon emissions, zero single plastic use, and increasing

sustainable development. Amatra is also on the same mission to ensure to

establish benchmarks in the hospitality sector in India with sustainable

development and zero waste policy,” Preety Arora (Head-Business Strategy),

Amatra Hotels and Resorts said.

Currently, Amatra has two properties, Amatra Dunsvirk Court in Mussoorie and

Amatra by the Ganges in Haridwar. Going ahead, it is looking to acquire

exemplary properties in Goa, Rajasthan, Kerala, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, and

few other leisure locations across the country.
