Phoenix 2002 Circular Economy Association is responsible for the Implementation of Demonstration project for establishing a waste reduction model within hotels and lodging places. The project is funded by the EU through the ERDF and by the State Budget of Bulgaria through Operational Programme “Environment 2014- 2020”. The overall funding is 188 598,40 EUR, of which 160 308,64 EUR from the ERDF and 28 289,76 EUR national co-financing. The Project Implementation time frame is 23 months – from 17.09.2020 to 17.08.2022.

The successful implementation of the Project will result in establishing a national eco-certification model for responsible waste management in hotels and lodging places. The model will enable hotels to have an environmental image stimulus to expand the range of their eco-practices and reduce waste.

 

Part of the implementation process, is the initial assessment and certification of two hotels (a sea resort in Kavarna, Bulgaria and a mountain resort in Bansko/Razlog, Bulgaria) and the overall development of a comprehensive set of waste reduction measures. The eco-certification model provides four levels of progression- bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

Certification has already taken place in both locations-

Royal Bay Resort in Kavarna, Bulgaria

Cornelia Deluxe Residence in Bansko, Bulgaria

 

Royal Bay Resort in Kavarna has already been awarded a Bronze level of certification.

The success of the initial assessment promises a fast pace of progression in the certification hierarchy and indicates the potential for greater contribution to the environment and sustainable business practices as well.
