Accor has teamed up with Source Global to bring the world’s first sustainable bottled drinking water brand to prominent hotels in Singapore.
Single-use plastic bottled water at key hotels in Singapore will be replaced with drinking water packaged in reusable glass bottles and made by Source Hydropanels – a solar-powered technology that harvests the pure, renewable water vapour in the air and transforms it into drinking water.
Each Hydropanel can offset more than 50,000 plastic bottles in its lifetime. Source will deliver its water in reusable glass bottles, which will be collected, cleaned, and refilled near the Source Water Farm.
This project is part of Accor’s global commitment to increase circularity in its operation and eliminate single-use plastics in the guest experience, consistent with the UN Global Tourism Plastics Initiative and the Resource Sustainability Bill passed by the Singaporean Government in 2019.
