The hotel was the first Sri Lankan city hotel to attain Green Globe certification in 2010 and the only Sri Lankan hotel to be re-certified this year. The hotel succeeded in all thirty nine sub categories broadly classified under Sustainable Management, Social/Economic, Cultural, Heritage and Environment.
Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo adheres to Green Globe guidelines in its daily practices and processes. The collection and reuse of rainwater, implementation of energy saving measures, use of environment friendly laundry bags and ‘green’ themed CSR initiatives are areas the hotel scored on. Awareness creation amongst associates, guests and the general public was an integral part of the hotel’s sustainability drive.
