Rejoice with us…
Care of you combined with care of the environment brings us joy. A common denomination of this effort is the EU Ecolabel, which - as the first four star hotel in Prague – we have acquired.
Also our guests that decide to make use of our services during their stay in Prague help us to significantly contribute to the protection of the environment. Therefore even our guests have a reason to rejoice!
Our ecological calculator will calculate for you to what degree you contribute to the environment with your stay in Adria Hotel Prague.
By many different measurements we have managed, along with our guests, to reduce energy consumption by 16 % and gas by 12%, i.e. a total of 355 thousand kWh. Thereby we have cut the ecological burden of CO2 emissions by 453 tonnes, which is equivalent of 1.6 million driven kilometres, at least 95 cars taken out of operation or 11,855 trees saved – an average sized tree absorbs around 6 kg of CO2 a year, so in 40 years it would have absorbed approx. 250 kg of CO2!
Waste sorting and other measures relating to our efforts to minimise waste production have resulted in its reduction of 20%, which is 65 m3. For better idea such a volume represents so much waste that would in a year fill up the Neptun breakfast room of Adria Hotel Prague. We have cut down on hotel’s water consumption by 4%, which equals 580 m3 – the average liquid intake of 232 000 adults. This volume of water would fill up all the hotel conference halls – i.e. Neptun, Pluton and all the hotel lounges and meeting rooms up to the ceiling.
The enumeration could continue on many other pages. In any case helping and having a positive impact on the environment definitely does not mean making large investments. Each of us can contribute more or less by the way we live and the way we act. Take a look at the following link http://www.adria.cz/ae-ecolabel/environmental_practices.phtml to see what measures have been introduced by us – the Adria’s Hotel employees – and you may discover that you have yourself already been helping the environment for years or, on the other hand, you might find some inspiration there …

”We perceived the decision to apply for the Eco-label as opportunity to crown by a common label a lot of our activities aimed at protection of the environment in our neighbourhood and environment in general. Frankly speaking, to meet the requirements for Eco-label was not so difficult. It is not that the criteria were not demanding but we found out that thanks to our long-lasting philosophy of our hotel we included an overwhelming majority of the requirements to our standards and they are a natural part of our everyday activities. We want to enable our guests to contribute to protection of the nature and will strive to provide them with opportunity of choice. Of course we will not force anybody to support our activities. We take this free choice as additional service to our customers that Adria hotel has been providing to its clients for almost 100 years.“
