Spreading the gospel of sustainability in Iloilo City
The Stay Green campaign of the Hotel 101 group extends to Iloilo City with agreements with the Philippine Coast Guard Aviation Force and the support from the Iloilo Government, held on 12 September at Injap Tower Hotel.
The campaign is an offshoot of the successful Stay Green initiative in Manila, where the hotel partnered with the Philippine Coast Guard Marine Environmental Protection Command and the Pasay City Government.
Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas, through his representative Iloilo City Environment and Natural Resources Officer-in-Charge Engineer Neil Ravena, relayed his message of thanks for Hotel 101 Group’s commitment to sustainability. “As we gather today for the Stay Green program of Hotel 101 Group, we are reminded also of our commitment in protecting the environment through the many initiatives of the city,” he remarked.
“We could not achieve what we have now, if not for our partners, like Hotel 101 Group. That’s why I am very grateful we collaborate with them because we make better and more adapting communities,” Mayor Treñas said.
Following the recently concluded four-part series of 101 Stay Green Sustainability Training Seminars with Pasay City Barangay Officials, Injap Tower Hotel, together with the Iloilo CENRO and the Philippine Coast Guard Marine Environmental Command, will similarly host Iloilo City Barangay Captains for a half-day information education campaign on environmental issues and waste management as part of the partnership.
Iloilo City has identified areas for cultivation of Tree Park Network across the city, including the Iloilo Beach Forest in Boulevard, Molo, Hinactacan Mangrove Forest in Jaro, the Lanit Tree Park in Jaro for endemic species of trees, among others.
“Hotel 101 Group is committed to making small collective efforts in promoting Sustainable Tourism through the 101 STAY GREEN program and beyond,” Hotel 101 Group general manager Gel Gomez said. “As tourism is one of the contributors to Climate Change, we strongly advocate for reducing our carbon footprint, operating more sustainably, and supporting the communities where we are located,” she added.
The Hotel 101 Group is a subsidiary of DoubleDragon Corporation, which operates Hotel 101, Injap Tower Hotel in Iloilo City, and Jinjiang Inn Philippines. Hotel 101 Group recently unveiled its direction to begin expanding abroad. It aims to make Hotel 101 the first global Filipino hotel chain.
