Pandox is aiming to reduce its water consumption by installing water-saving equipment and changing employee and guest behaviour around water consumption without compromising the guest comfort.
A shortage of water is an accelerating problem in some parts of the world. There are also areas in Europe that are now classified as water-stressed, i.e. where the amount of fresh water is no longer sufficient to meet the needs of society. Pandox uses water in water-stressed areas, including London and Brussels. Efforts to improve water consumption efficiency are therefore very important.
Water consumption in the hotel properties is affected by how much showering, dishwashing, cleaning, laundering, flushing and watering takes place. Pandox is aiming to reduce its water
consumption by installing water-saving equipment and changing employee and guest behaviour around water consumption. Today the majority of the hotels in Operator Activities are involving their guests in this effort by informing them of the hotel’s ambition to reduce water consumption.
In 2021 Pandox continued implementing a metering system for water consumption at hotels in Operator Activities. Any leaks or deviations from the normal daily water consumption are registered in realtime, making it possible to quickly identify and remedy problems such as leaks by responding to an alert.
Pandox is working towards a long-term goal
to increase the use of renewable energy
sources as part of the Company’s objective of offering green properties. A part of that can be for the hotel to produce its own energy.
There is a large potential in older buildings to make them more resource efficient. The green investment programme is focusing on measures to reduce energy and water consumption, and on technical installations such as building monitoring systems with integrated submeters.
