Eusbett Hotel in Sunyani has won the ‘Sustainability Award’ at the 2021 National Tourism Awards for its hard work and continuous efforts to meet the demands in the tourism and hospitality industry while drawing into focus the needs of the future generations for tourism and hospitality.
Eusbett Hotel, in a bid to strike a balance between economic growth, environmental care and social well-being, has put in several measures which are sustainability oriented.
In a citation presented to the hotel, the instalment and use of solar panels power the 200 guestrooms and several other facilities, and the hotel’s greenhouse organic farm – which is the main source of vegetable and produce supply for the hotel’s food and beverage department, show how much the hotel values the effects of production on the environment and people.
The hotel’s in-house filtered water production factory is an added advantage not to guests alone, but also to the indigenes as well.
These and many other initiatives by the hotel management and institution to protect the environment through the recycling and waste management approaches while providing jobs to enhance the livelihood of the locals have really shown the facility’s high regard for sustainability, the citation by the National Tourism Awards highlighted.
The General Manager, Robert Mensah, in a brief comment after receiving the award, dedicated it to the customers and staff as well as other stakeholders for their commitment to the Eusbett brand.
