Green Globe announces the re-certification of ADA Cosmetics International, a leader in the hotel cosmetics industry.
ADA was Germany’s first provider of eco-certified natural cosmetics in the industry. The company has been integrating sustainable practices into all levels of the business since 2005 and continues to develop a number of innovative concepts promoting environmental awareness among suppliers, clients and staff.
ADA Marketing Director Sylvia Jensch said, “In 2013, ADA was certified as the first hotel cosmetic manufacturer worldwide in accordance with the Green Globe Certification standard, which is the highest certification standard in the tourism and hospitality industry. We have just completed our re-certification and achieved an impressive 91% of Green Globe’s sustainability criteria. We are proud and at the same time very motivated to keep on implementing measures to ensure environmental and social well-being, making the use of our products eco-safe and pleasurable.”
The attention to sustainable practices that ADA displays in the quality of its products is now reflected in new eco-friendly initiatives. One of the latest projects is an educational program for ADA employees that promotes ongoing saving of energy and reduction in water usage. In addition, waste management programs teach the benefits of recycling items lessening the company’s carbon footprint.
Another first, ADA staff now drive new electric cars – the BMWi3 – making a contribution to the reduction of pollution. The e-car can cover large distances of 160 km, or more if required, with no noise or carbon emissions. ADA is convinced that the little sportster will be very popular with employees. And that is a great benefit because it will promote e-mobility and energy efficiency, in addition to being a significant step in further implementing the company’s ecological goals. Since 2011, ADA has succeeded in reducing its operational carbon emissions by 33 percent.
