GREEN PRACTICES AT HOTEL ICON
Our value for local culture and love for the city has only made Hotel ICON more committed to contributing to the future of our environment and sustainable travel. As a green hotel, we work with our employees and guests to ensure the concepts of green travel are put into practice.
ASIA'S LARGEST INDOOR VERTICAL GARDEN
Greeting our guests in the lobby, we are home to over 8,603 plants with 71 species that grow in the vertical garden.
100% COTTON LAUNDRY BAG
In April 2019, Hotel ICON will be bidding goodbye to plastic laundry bags. Hotel guests will instead be offered eco-friendly laundry bags, made 100% from cotton.
FIRST HOTEL IN ASIA TO LAUNCH THE IMPOSSIBLE BURGER
We are the first hotel in Asia to launch the Impossible Burger, a sustainable plant-based burger that is a game-changer for the food industry in conserving and protecting our planet. The best thing is it uses 74% less water, generates about 87% fewer greenhouse gases, and requires around 95% less land than conventional ground beef from cows.
100% Electric Transportation
We have further reduced our carbon footprint by moving to 100% electric transportation with Hong Kong’s first electric hotel shuttle bus, 3 Tesla model S and a BMW i3. Our groundbreaking electric vehicles sit perfectly with our philosophy of running a property that is sustainable wherever possible.
Filtered Drinking Water Tap and Recycled Glassware in Guestrooms
Water tastes better when less plastic is involved. Sustainability-minded Hotel ICON is reducing the use of plastic water bottles by installing an Ultra Filtration & Purification Drinking Water System, and having recycled carafes and glassware readily available to guests in guestrooms.
In-shower Dispensers to Replace Individual Bottles of Shampoo, Conditioner, and Soap
The hotel has also installed in-shower dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, body and hand wash, to replace individual bathroom amenities in its guestrooms. The dispensers feature products from APPELLES, a premium Australian skincare brand.
