Stay Green is the H10 Hotels Sustainability Plan. In line with our commitment to society and the environment, its goal is to promote a model for responsible tourism in all our destinations.
The current project continues the strategy launched in 2010 and is based on four main lines of action for the period 2021-2030, following European and international guidelines and strategically defined in all areas of the company:
90% of our establishments have 100% of their electricity contracted from renewable sources
More than 50% of hotels use renewable energy systems
Improving energy efficiency through the use of low-energy equipment and the control and automation of facilities
Selecting refrigerants with lower Global Warming Potential
Reducing electricity, water and fuel consumption per stay Sustainable
18% less water consumption thanks to water efficiency measures
Replacement of machinery and processes with high water consumption by more efficient options
Using alternatives to natural grass to reduce water consumption in gardening and irrigation systems
We have 12 highly efficient own-consumption desalination plants
Reduced flow taps and showers in the chain's establishments
Reduction of single-use plastic in rooms and single-dose amenity containers replaced by eco-friendly dispensers
Used each year 2,5 million fewer plastic bottles and 6 million fewer plastic glasses
Food waste monitored and reduction in organic products generated
Promoting green mobility, through bicycle and electric scooter hire and by installing charging points for electric vehicles in 12 hotels

Stay Green aligns the activity of H10 Hotels with guidelines and objectives defined at European and international level, and has determined its lines of action with reference to the 2030 Agenda Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations.
The initiatives proposed also conform to the European Green Deal (established in the EU's European Climate Law), which promotes the efficient and competitive use of resources with the aim of stopping greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
In the framework of FITUR 2023, the financial institution of CaixaBank has recognised the work in sustainability of H10 Hotels with the 'CaixaBank Hotels&Tourism' award, which honours the company's Stay Green programme, the aim of which is to promote and encourage responsible tourism in all destinations where it is present.
Through this award, the bank recognises the special sensitivity of sustainable projects in the tourism sector, such as those that include improvements in energy efficiency, accessibility, water and waste management, circular economy and those that promote the employment of people at risk of exclusion.
