Green Mark Hotels for Green tourism in Spring Festival

Maintain environmental protection for tours in Spring Festival! To build a quality green tourism environment, the Taoyuan Department of Environmental Protection (TYDEP) has actively guided hotels in the city to pass Green Mark Hotel certification in recent years. For example, “Xin She Hotel Zhongli”, “1971 Xanadu”, “Henawan Guesthouse”, and “Da Xi Lao Cheng Si Ji Xing Guan” have all passed Green Mark Hotel certification recently, including one silver and three bronze levels. The TYDEP urges citizens to select Green Mark hotels more often for Spring Festival tours. The TYDEP added, currently there are only 57 Green Mark hotels in Taiwan, and 7 of them are in Taoyuan. Besides the 4 new Green Mark hotels certified this year, there are also “Aspire Hotel” with gold certification, “Fullon Hotel Taoyuan” with silver certification and “Chateau de Chine Hotel Taoyuan” with bronze certification in Taoyuan, making the city top of Taiwan for Green Market hotels in both quality and quantity terms.

According to the TYDEP, it is necessary to comply with various regulations set by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) to pass the “Green Mark Hotel” certification. Hotels are required to implement environmental protection and energy conservation. Besides using energy-efficient lighting fixtures and water-efficient equipment and prioritizing green product procurement, hotels should provide eco-friendly accommodation packages to incentivize guests to minimize the use of single-use items and prepare own toiletries with a special discount.

The TYDEP added, the TYDEP has constantly promoted “green tourism” in recent years. From transportation through dining to hotel accommodation, the TYDEP actively guided hotels to become part of the green industrial chain for the green industry to engrain in our daily life and provide citizens with more options. Hotels also introduce different incentives from time to time to attract citizens, hoping citizens can choose green consumption and green tourism to support hotels engaging in environmental protection for mutual benefits. Besides reducing resource wastage, we can contribute to environmental protection together.

According to TYDEP Director-General Dr. Li-Teh Lu, hotels are willing to join environmental protection in real action. This is worthy of our support also in real action. Welcome for choosing Green Mark hotels when traveling to Taoyuan. We also hope that more hotels can join green tourism in the future for citizens to feel safe and practice environmental protection through hotel accommodation, in order to contribute to Earth protection.
