ONE SMALL DECISION: LESS PACKAGING, LESS WASTE

"The best way to create a greener, more eco-friendly world is by engaging and collaborating with local communities.” Pieter Ham, General Manager EAST Beijing

At EAST, sustainability is a core value that inspires us to make smart choices that lighten our touch on the planet and have a marked improvement on the guest experience.

NO MORE SINGLE-USE CUPS

Our first biodegradable eco-cup was created from bamboo powder, rice husk, crop straw, and other natural fibers, marking a significant step in our sustainable operations. To further incentivise reusable cups, we offer discounts to guests ordering beverages to-go in our eco-cup.

FILTERED DRINKING WATER, ON TAP

Since 2020, all guest rooms feature BRITA filters to provide drinking water straight from the tap, drastically reducing our annual footprint by up to 1500 kg from single-use bottles.

AN ECONOMIC ECOSYSTEM

We not only source our beans from an eco-conscious coffee roaster, we send our used grounds to a local farm where they’re turned into fertiliser for organic vegetables.

NEW LIFE TO OUR LINENS

We reduce waste and help give our fabrics new life through an intensive reycling process that sterilises and breaks them down before recuperating fibers to create new guestroom linens.

INCREASING WATER EFFICIENCY

We recognise hotel kitchens as a key property resource management component. So we’ve installed water economisers and flow controllers on all the taps in our restaurant kitchens to ensure water is used efficiently.

DOING OUR PART

Bob Ren
Executive Assistant Manager, EAST Beijing

Sustainability starts with the mindset that small changes now have a great impact tomorrow. With the team, we've been working to maintain a high level of guest comfort while minimising energy consumption. For example, flow reducers on faucets have saved over 130 cubic meters of water a year, while our updated kitchen exhaust purification system has since saved 1,278 kWh. It's long-term commitments like these that lighten our impact and make steps toward a better future for coming generations.
