Marriott International is constantly working to reduce its environmental impact, building and operating sustainable hotels and sourcing responsibly. In line with the company’s 2025 goals for sustainability and social impact, Le Meridien Goa, Calangute has announced a significant leap forward in its sustainability efforts as it opened its in-house water bottling plant this month.

The hotel has taken a decisive step towards reducing plastic waste by eliminating all single-use plastic bottles and introducing reusable, treated and bottled glass water bottles on site.

To address the critical issue of food waste management, Le Meridien Goa, Calangute has created a collaborative partnership with Welfare for Animals in Goa, where on a daily basis every raw fruit and vegetable leftover is donated to support the noble cause of the reserve. In addition, the hotel introduced the innovative “No Day to Sleep” initiative, which promotes a culture of minimal waste and educates internal stakeholders on the importance of responsible use of resources.

The hotel has embraced electric mobility by installing a 60kW DC fast charging station in partnership with ChargeZone, an electric vehicle charging network company. This initiative allows guests and visitors to easily charge their electric cars while enjoying the hotel’s services. The hotel also made use of solar energy as a renewable source of water heating. With an unwavering commitment to sustainability, they aim to expand their solar capacity in the long term.

Aligning with Marriott International’s Serve 360 ​​initiative to “Do Good in Every Way,” which advocates making a positive impact, Le Meridien Goa, Calangute encourages its partners and guests to actively participate in its green initiatives. By reducing the frequency of linen changes and replacing plastic bathroom products with refillable ones, guests are already making conscious choices during their stay.

Environmental conservation remains a primary goal and Le Meridien Goa, Calangute believes its activism has the potential to not only make an impact but also inspire others in this shared responsibility to reduce carbon emissions.
