DOT-3 urges hotels to join green awards

ANGELES CITY — The Department of Tourism in Central Luzon (DOT 3) encourages hotels across the region to join the “ASEAN Green Hotel Award.”
The ASEAN Green Hotel Award is a form of appreciation and recognition given to hotel industry players whose operations are based on environmentally-friendly principles and adopts energy conservation measure.
The search is open to all DOT-accredited accommodation stakeholders.
The award, given every two years by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, will be given out during the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2014 in Malaysia.
The award system aims to improve awareness of those who run the hotel business against global warming; to improve the competitiveness of the hotel industry in gaining more guests; and to improve quality of service in ASEAN countries to support the move of the ASEAN to become a single tourism destination.
To qualify for the award, the major criteria and requirements stipulated for the awards are environmental policy and activities for hotel operation; use of green products; collaboration with the community and local organizations and human resource development.
Other requirements as agreed upon by the ASEAN National Tourism Organizations (NTOs) include solid waste management; energy efficiency; water efficiency; air quality management (indoor & outdoor); noise pollution control; wastewater treatment and management and toxic and chemical substance disposal management.
For DOT-accredited hotels in Central Luzon, their letter of intent to participate in the award system should be submitted on or before May 24 at the DOT 3 thru email at or at
Interested stakeholders will undergo ocular inspection by a Green Audit Team for validation and compliance with the ASEAN Green Hotel Standards. ● Charlene A. Cayabyab
