At the Kathmandu Guest House, we have always been aware that tourism causes significant impact to the natural and social environment of any destination in both negative and positive ways. To this end we have practiced a long standing ‘Green Best Practice’ policy.
Besides having a huge garden to enhance greenery with a rich and wide diversity of plants, KGH commits to ethical managerial and business practices to reduce carbon footprint in the daily operation of the hotel.
KGH Best Green Practices:
1. Creation of “ The Green Team”:
Formation of an inter-departmental team to ensure our ‘Green Code’. This team brings awareness, instigates, and monitors procedures to implement the environment friendly practices.
2. Guest rooms – as eco-friendly as possible:
4. Local sourcing:
5. Waste management and control:
6. Incorporate Technology:
We endeavor to provide most of our information via technological solutions using internet & mobile apps to reduce paper and printing.
Printing paper is sourced from recycled paper companies.
We endeavor to practice sustainable purchasing,
choosing products that have been re-cycled, can be re-cycled, and choose non-toxic products.
– Office supplies, writing pads, and pens
– Light bulbs
– Cleaning supplies, sanitizers, and adhesives
– Paper products
8. Waste management and control:
Waste is segregated into degradable and non-degradable.
All organic waste from our kitchens are composited and used for sustainable gardening
9. Energy management and audit:
The Hotel undergoes regular energy consumption audits, to ensure optimal energy use. Implementation of recommendations allows us to reach short and long-term carbon emission targets.
In addition to Key-cards, our IDiakin lighting sensors automatically turn lights on or off, or brighten and dim as required.
Regularly serviced generators ensure low noise and low fuel consumption with maximum electricity output.
Earth has protected and nurtured us since the beginning of time.
We are all just guests here, in this moment and time.
Everything we do, let’s safeguard our Mother Earth.
