A greener world, together we can

Ibis Styles Catania Acireale is firmly convinced that it is possible to deploy its own forces and an appropriate behaviour to contribute, as a community, to the defence of the planet, without sacrificing comfort.

Therefore, we have just implemented some concrete eco-sustainable choices with the aim to limit the environmental impact.

Our choices as green hotel

pannelli-solari

SOLAR AND PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS

We have chosen solar energy: clean, safe and inexhaustible. We have installed photovoltaic panels on the roof of the 2 buildings and, thanks to new technologies, we can constantly monitor the CO2 impact that is saved annually. Overall, since 2012, the year of installation, we have had a CO2 reduction of over 2.671 tons.

prodotti-ecologici

ECOLOGICAL PRODUCTS FOR CLEANING

For the cleaning of our hotel, we rely on ecological and biodegradable products, avoiding chemicals.

area-verde

GREEN AREA

We know the importance of having a small green lung in the city. Therefore, together with the hedges and the vegetation that characterizes our outdoor environments, we have dedicated an area to trees, aromatic plants and local spices. The hotel is surrounded by plants with low water consumption and native. We monitor the presence of invasive species, using a low volume irrigation. Organic waste and garden waste are used in a composting programme.

raccolta-differenziata

WASTE COLLECTION

We support a policy of separate waste collection with special containers in the hotel. We carefully manage the disposal of printer toners as well.

consumi-contenuti

ENERGY

We monitor and record total consumption through a series of measures:

  • using energy-saving lamps;
  • using presence sensors and intensity regulators;
  • a centralized on/off system, programmable thermostat, timer;
  • using magnetic cards;
  • installation of double-glazed windows and energy efficient equipment.
noleggio-bici

BIKE RENTAL

For an outdoor experience, we offer the possibility of renting e-bikes to explore the surrounding area and the wonderful Natural Reserve of Timpa of Acireale.

riduzione-plastica

PLASTIC REDUCTION AND USE OF ECO-RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTS

We have considerably reduced the use of plastic containers, reducing the waste, and we are working to optimize and increase our actions. We have chosen to put in the bathrooms eco-sustainable products such as Ecolabel toilet paper and dispensers for toiletries, eliminating disposable plastic.

riciclo-carta

PAPER RECYCLING

The staff embraces the green philosophy: where possible, we choose to recycle paper and limit the printing of documents, if not necessary.

ricarica-elettrica

CHARGING STATION FOR ELECTRIC CARS

For those who have chosen to use electric cars, the electric charging station is an extremely useful resource that allows guests to travel in complete serenity.

UNDER MAINTENANCE

icona-sensibilizzazione

ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS

Our staff provides information to travellers about the nearby protected natural area of Timpa, also by indicating alternative and sustainable means of transport (hybrid cars, bicycles, public transport) for visits in the surrounding area.
Moreover, with constant communication through social and web channels, we post news, updates, implemented actions and obtained certifications.

NEXT STEPS:

Since belonging to the Accor network, we are committed to remove plastics by December 2022 and we are strongly committed to reduce our emissions by 2050.

The structure intends to:

  • channelling rainwater to reuse for irrigation;
  • install solar carports in the parking area;
  • redistributing food surpluses to local associations;
  • using a carbon free hosting provider;
  • promoting participation in environmental education activities;
  • rewarding customers who adopt sustainable behaviours;
  • creating its own environmental management system in order to acquire an EU certification
