Sustainable Hotels in Croatia: Hotel Astoria in Zagreb

Daniela Rogulj

The Best Western Premier Hotel Astoria in Zagreb is “Sustainable Hotel” certified by UPUHH.

The Association of Employers in Croatian Hospitality introduced the “Sustainable Hotel” certificate back in 2013 after thoroughly reviewing the existing green certificates hotels obtained such as “Prijatelj prirode”, “Travelife”, and “BlaueAngel”. The Sustainable Hotel certificate is given in 3 categories which include basic, advanced and superior, and the criteria are based on 9 groups including sustainability management, supply, sales, marketing and PR, the environment, energy efficiency, human resources and technical support. 

The Hotel Astoria in Zagreb uses the implementation of green business activities which stems from their understanding of the need to preserve the environment and the sustainable development of tourism.

There are 5 ways that Hotel Astoria cares for the environment, and they include: preventing pollution, minimizing waste, recycling, pollution control, and handling waste.

In addition, the hotel participated in the project titled “Green Business Activities” back in 2013 which was organized by the Croatian Ministry of Tourism.

“The project Green Business Activities is known by the management of the hotel as an important step forward for Croatian tourism which could give a chance for the hotel to be recognized on the global market as a green destination which is an international trend today and which gives significant profit to some hotels. In all further activities of the company, along with quality, we will also put emphasis on the implementation of additional ecological measures within operations. The strategic goals were set by the management and the owner of the hotel. The quality of services is a guarantee for future successful business operations of BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Astoria Ltd,” says the Best Western Premier Hotel Astoria website

The Hotel Astoria in Zagreb is a member of the world’s largest hotel cooperation of privately owned and operated hotels, and we thank you for going green!
