Jetwing Speaks Sustainability in South Korea

In November of 2019, The Korean government and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) organized a conference on sustainable tourism in Yeosu, South Korea. Invited to speak at the conference, Jetwing Hotels’ Director of Engineering, Jude Kasturi Arachchi presented on “smart solutions for hospitality” and how innovative approaches and new technologies assist Jetwing Hotels in tackling the issue of pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.

The session included discussions on Jetwing’s innovative renewable energy applications (solar electricity, steam driven air conditioning, green kitchens) and waste management strategies. From the onsite organic waste management at Jetwing Blue and Jetwing Beach to the Vapour Absorption Chillers, run sustainably via biomass boilers to provide the hotels’ air conditioning requirement and even the process of phasing-out plastics from the operations of many of their hotel properties.
