Dublin’s Grafton Hotel Receives BREEAM Certification
As well as green tourism certification, the hotel was certified for BREEAM in 2022, following an assessment process of its environmental, social and economic sustainability performance, using standards developed by BRE.
BREEAM is a sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in high-performing assets across the built-environment life cycle, from new construction to in-use assets and refurbishment. For a hotel to be recognised for its efforts means that BREEAM-rated developments are very sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, help protect natural resources, and make for very attractive property investments.
