Environmental sustainability is an issue to which we are deeply committed and is a hallmark of our hotels. They all respect the environment, using low-impact generators to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption, as well as low consumption LED lighting and high efficiency heating systems.
In particular, Starhotels E.c.ho. in Milan, which opened its doors in 2011, has been entirely designed with environmentally-friendly technology to reduce energy consumption through the use of eco-sustainable furniture.
The totality of the architectural and design elements that make Starhotels E.c.ho. a true jewel of eco-friendly construction has earned the hotel not only the 2012 European Hotel Design Award for sustainable design, but also the Green Globe certification, a prestigious recognition given only after strict auditing process, a result that has recently been confirmed with the Green Globe Gold Status thanks to a compliance score of 95%.
In 2019, Starhotels also launched the Plastic-free project, a commitment to lowering its environmental impact and banishing single-use plastic productsin favour of 100% recycled and biodegradable products.
