Mandarin Oriental Group has pledged to eliminate all single-use plastic, across its entire portfolio of luxury hotels, by the end of March 2021. Mandarin Oriental in Macau has already installed its onsite Nordaq water filtration systems.
This solution will eliminate the need of all plastic bottles used for Mandarin Oriental, Macau’s 213 rooms, restaurants, banquets and events yearly. The bottled water is tapped onsite using the Swedish patent, the Nordaq filter system, which allows both still and sparkling water.
“Our hotel was using 150,000 plastic bottles every year and these bottles ended up in landfill, harming the environment,”
said Christian Dolenc, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Macau.
“Plastic waste is one of the gravest environmental concerns affecting our planet today. While our relatively small footprint limits our contribution to the world’s plastic reduction, as one of the most iconic luxury global hotel groups we are in a strong position to drive important changes in the industry,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive, Mandarin Oriental.
