Grafton Hotel Dublin Gets BREEAM Certification

The Grafton Hotel on Dublin’s Stephen Street joins an exclusive club of top-rated energy efficient hotels in the city. The BREEAM certification follows an assessment process of environmental, social and economic sustainability performance.  

Grafton Hotel Dublin Gets BREEAM Certification

BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for infrastructure and buildings. For a hotel to be recognised for its efforts means that BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments. In addition, it enhances the well-being of employees and helps protect natural resources. 

The Grafton Hotel, one of the city’s newest, is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and is always looking for ways to increase sustainability efforts. The management team headed by General Manager Brid Cloonan meet regularly to ensure the continuous improvement of green initiatives throughout the hotel.

What The Grafton is currently doing? 

         Replaced all fluorescent bulbs with LEDs and installed Passive Infrared sensors.

         Appliances like washing machines are low flow models to make further water savings. 

         Guest bathrooms are fitted with sensors and low flush technology. 

         Recycling – all glass, cardboard, plastic bottles, aluminium, paper and food waste are recycled. 

         Glass crushers are used for all bottle waste, reducing glass volume waste up to 80%. 

·        Guest rooms are fitted with refillable vegan-friendly shampoos/conditioners and soap. 

        Cyclist facilities are provided outside the building and cycle parking is located close to the hotel.
