Carbono Zero certification
Throughout its seven years of activity, NEYA Lisboa Hotel has adopted an efficient management system and has developed several actions that have allowed a reduction of its impact on the environment and the community. In addition to separating the waste produced, including those from the rooms and heating the water through solar energy, it has developed initiatives such as Eco Meetings, NEYA Plastic Free or Quarto Solidário.
To strengthen its work to make its business more sustainable, NEYA has joined Ponto Verde Serviços in order to offset the carbon emissions emitted by the hotel. This environmental consultant estimates the emissions of three of the six greenhouse gases (GHGs) covered by the Kyoto Protocol: carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), methane (CH 4 ) and nitrous oxide (N 2 O), represented by CO 2 equivalent (CO 2 e).
CO 2 emissions and resulting from energy consumption, mobility, stays, transportation of raw materials and waste production totaled 280.7 tCO 2 and (tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) over the whole of 2017. Upon receiving the Zero Carbon Certification, the emissions were converted into carbon credits that will be offset in a national forest plantation action, which will take place at the end of November in the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park in Marvão, thus minimizing its impact on the environment.
Thus, NEYA Lisboa Hotel becomes a "Carbono Zero" Hotel, meaning that its activity does not present any carbon emission to the atmosphere, contributing to the mitigation of global warming and climate change on the planet.
