Repak Awards 2009

REPAK Recycling Award for Clarion Hotel Cork. Clarion Cork Hotel has underlines its commitment to green initiatives by scooping this national award – Repak Best Practice Award 2009 – Hospitality Sector.


Clarion Hotel Cork

Some Initiatives the hotel has put in place include waste segregation bins, decanting of food into re-usable crates and boxes, less packaging used for breakfast, small reusable decanter for small items like sugar, butter, salt and peppers and an on-site dedicated waste handling room. As a result, the hotel has grown its waste recycling rates three fold to 30 per cent up from 12 per cent last year. The Clarion Hotel Cork was awarded Green Hospitality Award Gold standard in January 2009.

Second finalist in for Repak Awards was Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Co Galway, currently holding the GHA Silver standard.

ISO 14001

Meanwhile, Lifetime Lab at the Old Cork Waterworks - a former Green Hospitality member - has become the first tourist attraction in Ireland to receive the globally recognised ISO 14001 accreditation.

The centre which supports science education for primary schools as well as providing information on sustainable living, achieved the standard by introducing environmental management systems across the day-to-day operation of the site.
