Amongst First Hotels to be Awarded Green Mobility Label

AX The Palace and AX The Victoria Hotel have been awarded the label by the Malta Tourism Authority!

 

AX Hotels are proud to announce that two of their properties – the 5-star AX The Palace and the 4-star AX The Victoria Hotel – are amongst the first hotels to be awarded the Green Mobility Label in Malta! This label marks an important milestone in AX Hotels’ ongoing journey towards increasing sustainability in the tourism industry and reducing the carbon footprint of hotels in Malta.

 

“We are delighted to be amongst the first hotels to bear the Green Mobility Label, as we believe that sustainable tourism should be a priority for all people involved in the tourism industry,” said Mr Kevin Callus, General Manager of AX Hotels Sliema properties.

 

The news was received in September 2019, just as the two hotels have finalised their plans to promote green mobility. These measures, many of which have already been actualised, include implementing a set of incentives to encourage all people connected to the hotels to use alternative modes of transport – targeting guests, employees, tourists in the area, business suppliers and associates.

 

“We are already seeing an improvement in our guests’ and employees’ experiences as a result of our green mobility policy, and we are sure that, thanks to this label, we will continue to play our part for the environment,” said Mr Callus.

Green Mobility

The Green Mobility Policy aims to reduce the use of individual cars for employees travelling between home and the workplace, by providing group transportation and secure bicycle parking facilities. Showers and lockers are available onsite, so staff may prepare for their shift after walking or cycling to work. A sleeping room for employees is also provided to use between late night and early morning shifts, instead of commuting home. All idle vehicles in the waiting area of the hotel are made sure that their engines are switched off.

 

Information about alternative transport methods is communicated to guests, and their adoption is facilitated by the hotels. Shuttle transport is provided to the airport and to weekly cultural activities, the use of buses, shared bikes and GOTO electric car sharing services is encouraged, in order to make guests stays eco-friendlier. AX Hotels are currently in the process of furthering their endeavours to increase their sustainability.
