easyHotel takes steps to reduce carbon footprint

Budget hotel brand easyHotel has invested €1.5 million in a bid to reduce its carbon footprint.

It plans to improve energy efficiency in nine hotels across France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain. 

Plans will include the installation of heat pumps, motion sensor LED lights and improved control systems. These initiatives, which will be implemented by the end of 2024, are expected to drive 18% of CO2 savings.

The hotel’s latest investment follows last year’s £4.5 million strategy to reduce the carbon footprint across its 12 UK locations, which is due to be completed by 2025.

easyHotel also hopes to raise awareness of unnecessary energy usage among guests and staff.

Karim Malak, CEO of easyHotel, said: “In our mission to become the first choice for low-carbon affordable hotels in Europe, it is important to introduce further measures to improve upon our carbon emissions, both for us and our guests. 

“Last year’s investment into our UK portfolio was a pivotal moment to address our emissions and we’re proud to be extending this initiative with this additional investment into more of our European portfolio. This strategic investment ensures that regardless of location, guests can be confident that their stay aligns with their affordable and sustainable values across our owned and leased network.”
