Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris has announced a strategic partnership with sustainable solutions company Diversey.

In line with Taj’s commitment to preserving the environment, its modern laundry system helps conserve water and electricity while also improving productivity. 

This programme was pilot tested at five Taj hotels and resulted in significant savings in man hours, electricity and water. About five million litres of water, 26,000 kilowatts of electricity, 1,47,000 kilograms of steam and 1,800 man hours have been saved. 

The positive results of the testing have encouraged the group to induce the programme to five more hotels by June 2018, and to 30 hotels by March 2019.

“We are committed to being a responsible citizen on this planet. We integrate sustainable development into our business practices and this initiative will help us conserve our natural resources,” says Ashish Seth, vice president materials, Indian Hotels Company Limited.
