Furama Recognised for Environmental Commitment with Fourth Consecutive ASEAN Green Hotel Award at ATF 2014

Ongoing industry and regional recognition encourages green hotels Furama City Centre and Furama RiverFront in their continuous environmental efforts

Singapore, January 2014 – Furama Hotels International (FHI), one of the largest global hotel chains in Singapore, was recognised for its commitment to the environment with Furama City Centre and Furama RiverFront, amongst ten hotels from Singapore and    86 hotels in the region, receiving their fourth consecutive ASEAN Green Hotel Award at the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) 2014 in Kuching, Malaysia on 20 January.

The prestigious win adds to a list of green accolades that includes the BCA Green Mark Platinum Award by the Building and Construction Authority and Singapore Green Hotel Award by the Singapore Hotel Association, applauding the outstanding and trail-blazing environmental efforts by the hotel. Furama City Centre and Furama RiverFront continue to be the only existing hotels feted with this highest distinction from BCA.

The bi-annual ASEAN Green Hotel Award, first presented in 2008, recognises environmentally-conscious hotels that have shown excellence in green practices and performed exceptionally-well under the ASEAN Green Hotel Standard – one of six ASEAN Tourism Standards that the ten ASEAN member states consider essential for promoting the region as a quality single destination. The stringent judging criteria include solid waste management, energy and water efficiency, air quality management and toxic chemical substance disposal.

“We are honoured and encouraged as we receive the ASEAN Green Tourism Award for the fourth consecutive year since its inception, representing the nation in promoting ASEAN as a quality single destination, amongst the increasing number of hotels in Singapore. We are proud to be given this recognition by the industry and the region as Furama continues in her environmental-conscious efforts in water and energy efficiency using innovative systems, environmental quality and improving the green features within the hotels to ensure a comfortable environment for the guests,” said  Mr Welly Jamin, Vice President, Operations, Furama Hotels International (FHI).
