Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), one of Goa’s largest hospitality companies, and leader in ethical business practices, reiterated its commitment to minimise environmental impact and promote sustainability on the occasion of World Environment Day recently.

IHCL’s sustainable initiatives across its properties in Goa are integrated into all aspects of operations, from waste management to energy efficiency.

Key practices include water conservation, wherein hotels operate sewage treatment plants (STPs) with ultra-filtration systems, ensuring zero discharge of wastewater and 100% reuse for irrigation.

Additionally, rainwater harvesting systems are employed to recharge groundwater. Effective waste management involves bio-composting of food waste and responsible disposal of waste oil and batteries through authorised sources.
