Crowne Plaza Greater Noida commissions a Zero Mile Artisanal Water Plant that is IoT enabled and is programmed on Artificial-Intelligence technology. The FSSAI approved sustainable plant launched in partnership with Swajal WaterCube, aims to replace single use plastic water bottles with sustainable glass water bottles for the guests. Each glass water bottle works on the Zero-Mile Water concept, where single use plastic bottles are replaced by glass bottles on site. This drastically reduces carbon footprint by removing the need to transport these bottles back and forth from a central plant. With Zero-Mile Water, the water is carbon-free and plastic-free, thereby delivering only high quality, ultra-premium alkaline mineralised water.
It is estimated that this move will save about 86,695 Kg single-use plastic bottles and 2, 60,087 kg carbon emission over the next five years. This is the same amount of energy required to run a 60 watt light bulb for 4,868 years. It is an initiative by IHG Hotels & Resorts and supported by the hotel as a pilot project in the region, contributing towards IHGs Journey to Tomorrow commitments. “The team at Crowne Plaza Greater Noida had pledged to substantially reduce our carbon footprint, as well as reducing single use items across our hotel. We also hope to inspire other hotels to continue their own efforts towards sustainability”, said Ashwani Nayar, General Manager, Crowne Plaza Greater Noida.
