“This 26-room boutique hotel in downtown Jing’an District was once a post office and now claims to be China’s first carbon neutral hotel. The renovation, which was completed using 100 percent locally-sourced and recycled materials, has won numerous awards for its sustainability and design.”
“Within a former post office, China’s first carbon-neutral hotel not only incorporates recyclable materials and low-energy products where possible, it also calculates its complete carbon footprint – including staff commutes and delivery journeys – and offsets it by donating money to environmentally friendly projects.”
“Innovatively designed and environmentally friendly, this is Shanghai’s first carbon-neutral hotel. Built out of a former factory warehouse with environmentally sensitive technology and recycled materials, it’s a truly unique place to stay.”
