IHP neutralizes office emissions with ALLCOT
IHP (International Hospitality Projects), commits to sustainable business by offsetting emissions from activities associated with energy consumption in their facilities in collaboration with ALLCOT. These emissions have been offset by means of a voluntary contribution toward one of the environmental projects of ALLCOT Group.
The environmental project selected for the offsetting was the Cikel Brazilian Amazon REDD Project registered under the Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS). The CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project aims to avoid emissions from planned deforestation on a property in Paragominas Municipality, Para state, Brazil. The main activity of the CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project is the cancelation of the planned deforestation activities and decision to instead conserve the forest area and continue limited forest management activities in the area.
So, the objective is to conserve the forest area and continue limited forest management activities in the area under Forest Stewardship Council® Certification (FSC®) with Low Impact Logging (SFMLIL) practices.
With the carbon offset certificate, IHP has showed its responsibility and commitment to the environment and society by combating climate change.
International Hospitality Projects has decided to offset their carbon footprint as a sign of their strong commitment to sustainability. An action that demonstrates the commitment to their projects, some as important as the definition of the Sustainability Plan for Confortel Hotels chain, or energy efficiency plans for Travelodge Hotels Spain, among others.
