Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi and Mövenpick Hotel Saigon were judged on 337 different criteria, including customer satisfaction, water and energy consumption, waste management, commitment to society, and internal training.

General Manager of Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi Phillip Jones said the hotel has strived to minimise energy use by applying a number of measures such as installing a power-saving lighting system, reducing water consumption and paying attention to waste and chemical treatment.

The hotel has also set detailed targets and observed its operation based on these targets to make sure Green Globe is implemented effectively, he added.
