Sustainable Practices at Hilton Malta
18 September @ 09:00 – 31 October @ 23:00
Over the past couple of years, Hilton Malta has made great efforts in continuing to reduce our impact on the environment. Namely, in the reduction of single use plastics. An information video-campaign will now be launched to explain the ways in which we have managed to reduce waste.
Single use plastics are some of the most harmful waste items because they tend to end up in our seas, and tend to break down into smaller pieces of plastics, harming our environment and wildlife for years to come. Hilton Malta has invested in 2 major projects over the last couple of years to eliminate single use plastics in the hotel.
The first big task was installing filtered water taps in each of our guest rooms. This helped us eliminate the plastic water bottles given to all our guests when checking-in. Guests now have direct and free access to drinkable water in their hotel rooms.
Secondly, we have managed to eliminate the small plastic soap bottles. We have installed dispensers in guest room that can take up enough soap/shampoo/lotion etc for 30 days of use and can then be re-filled. This has not only eliminated the use and waste of all the small amenity bottles, but it has also eliminated the waste of a lot of soap which used to be left in the small bottles which of course couldn’t then be given to the next guests checking into the room.
In July 2023, these efforts were recognised in the Malta Waste Management, Recycling & Green ESG Sustainability Conference Awards whereby Hilton Malta won 3 awards: Eco Excellence Award, Waste Management Award, and Best Waste Management Award by a Private Organisation.
Our video campaign will explain the above in more detail and aims to raise awareness on how everyone can make a difference in the amount of waste they generate.
