A society where both people and the environment blossom,
what can we do, as a hotel, in order to protect the environment and its limited resources?
We are engaging with this in various ways.
Local production for local consumption' is a phrase used to promote the consumption of agriculture and marine products within the region they were produced. Simply by keeping things local we can shorten the distribution process, in turn saving energy on transportation and reducing CO2 emissions. Moreover, the reduction of distance between consumers and producers means that the agricultural and marine products are fresher. This stimulates the local economy, connects people to their local region and is said to help preserve and encourage the succession of traditional food cultures. In Chiba Prefecture, we are promoting this idea under the name 'Chisan Chishou', meaning made in Chiba, consumed in Chiba.
Using up the toilet paper
Use limited resources carefully', 'every little counts when it comes to waste reduction'. Bearing these ideas in mind, we ask that customers finish each roll of toilet paper to prevent the unnecessary disposal of valuable resources.
Water level indication in the bath
We have affixed water level indicators to bath tubs in each of the guest rooms, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping to save water.
Replacement and introduction of energy saving equipment and devices
We are changing to LED bulbs and motion sensor lighting, as well as adopting low energy toilet washlets. In addition, we have upgraded our air conditioning and hot water supply facilities to be highly energy efficient, working towards reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
We aim to be a hotel that values and respects the environment. With these ideas in mind, many of our hotels voluntarily carry out local cleaning efforts and cooperate with the beautification of the local environment. Those passing by often call out "great work!", and this allows us to continue our work in high spirits.
Participation in the &EARTH clothing support project
We also participate in activities which support clothing those in need. We collect unwanted clothing at the Mitsui Fudosan Group's commercial facilities, which we then donate to those in need through the Japan Relief Clothing Center (JRCC).
