SAY ‘NO’ TO PLASTIC
Plastic waste causes major ecological and environmental issues because of its non-biodegradable nature which causes pollution. It is our responsibility to preserve our environment and show our responsibility towards it.
The Lalit believes in sustainable and responsible tourism. As part of its We Care campaign the group has decided to move away from plastic bottles in banquets, outlets and rooms, which has been replaced by glass bottle which are more environment friendly. The Group has invested in its own RO plant at The Lalit New Delhi which allows it to have bottled water in glass bottles at all guest touch points.
SAVE PAPER – Protecting Environment
We encourage electronic medium for communication and recycle our used paper.
LESS ENERGY CONSUMPTION – Conserve Energy
All our hotels are equipped with LED lights and some with sensor light options to save electricity. Our initiative of sourcing electricity generated from windmill (renewable energy) as well as use of smart air conditioning units which consume less energy is highly successful. We have installed solar panels at our hotels for heating water and some hotels use the solar panels for lighting.
Our infrastructure is equipped with sewage treatment plants enabling waste management to protect the environment. We also have effluent treatment plants to manage the waste from kitchen and laundry. The treated water is used for cooling towers, horticulture and in some hotels for WC flushing system. Our hotels also manage the kitchen wet waste with Organic Waste Converter.
NO FOOD IS WASTED – Optimum Utilization
We engage with the weaker sections and for more than three decades have been distributing fresh food to the needy through organizations like Mother Teresa’s Missionary home, Akshay Patra. Our recent collaboration with Robin Hood Army has helped us widen our reach to more underprivileged sections of our society.
WE SERVE WHAT WE GROW – The Healthy Way
Keeping the health of our guests in mind we endeavour to use organically grown vegetables and herbs under our “We serve what we grow” initiative.
CHEMICAL FREE – Glowing You
The personal care products of Kronokare are free of Sulphur, Silicone, Mineral Oil and Paraben that can cause skin damage because “We Care”.
BUILDING A GREEN INDIA – Save Environment
The Lalit team has planted 1.5 lakh trees in Bengaluru, approx 10 thousand trees in and around Khajuraho, approx 50 thousand trees in Delhi/Ncr besides planting thousands of trees across its other locations as “We Care”.
RADIATION FRIENDLY – Radiation Friendly Environment
Electronic appliances rule the present age and emitting radiations is a major part of their mechanism. All these radiations tend to increase the stress level and cause slow but severe health issues. In an effort to reduce the harmful effects of various radiations, all our hotels are equipped with the latest Radiation Management Solutions. This makes us the first hotel chain in the country to provide a controlled radiation environment for our guests and employees because “We care”.
DEVELOPING DESTINATIONS – Developing Destinations
“We do not develop hotels we develop destinations”. Our initiatives involve the local population, their handicrafts, culture, food, thereby giving them training and employment to boost the economic environment. Our approach of “We Care” has made The Lalit a successful catalyst for cultural rejuvenation and energy in many of the less explored regions in India.
LOVE FOR ALL – Pure Love
Our most valuable asset – our people, remain our top priority. As an “equal opportunity organization” we have on rolls speech and hearing impaired, transgenders, country’s first differently abled DJ, and more recently our first blind employee. This is further amplified externally with special events curated for LGBTQIA, our Tie up with Inclov for differently abled get together and association with Make love Not Scars – an NGO working for acid attack survivors, to name a few.
