Budapest, 22 January 2024 – Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest has achieved Certified Silver Status through EarthCheck, the world’s leading business advisory group specialising in sustainability and destination management for the travel and tourism industry. This is such an important milestone.
“The EarthCheck Certified Silver confirms our mission and achievements in environmentally responsible practices,” said Stephan Interthal, general manager of the hotel. “We keep maintaining our commitment to sustainable development and make every effort to apply best practices in environmental and social sustainability.”
To avoid catastrophic climate change, the world needs to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Today, we are already at 1.1°C and feeling the effects, meaning that the window for achieving our target and avoiding the most catastrophic impacts of climate change is rapidly closing. The very environmental values and cultural assets that attract visitors to destinations need to be protected and responsibly managed. The tourism industry and its operators are key to creating this change.
According to Stewart Moore, CEO and founder of EarthCheck, Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest has taken a significant leadership position in sustainability. He said, “I would like to congratulate the whole team at Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest on their achievement. The hotel is a valued member of a global group of tourism operators who dare to make a difference.”
By working with EarthCheck, Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest has joined other industry leaders that are taking meaningful steps towards resolving some of the very real issues that the planet faces.
