Both Raymond Chan, COO of TUV Rheinland Hong Kong, and Raymond Lee, Managing Director of Prabelle Hotel, attended the ceremony.

Le Prabelle Hotel is leading the way in green operations. Its realization of environmentally sustainable development in business operations and implementation of various green initiatives is to be commended." Lee also expressed how honored he felt to be certified: "We are delighted to receive the TUV Rheinland Eco Hotel Certification. It represents acknowledgment, praise and encouragement for the environmental efforts at our hotel. The hotel and tourism-related industry certification services offered by TUV Rheinland not only helped us fulfill our commitment to the environment but also reduced the operation costs. The certification is of great importance to us and increases the competitiveness of our existing and future hotels."

Hotels with related certification are therefore more attractive to travelers. In response to this trend, Le Prabelle Hotel chose to collaborate with TUV Rheinland due to its sound reputation and technical expertise. "TUV Rheinland provided the hotel with extensive assessment and guidance on improvements to existing environmental practice. Apart from improving our business efficiency, it also reduced our consumption of resources and energy. It also recognized that our green management policy is aligned with international standards. The collaboration is one of the main components of our green marketing promotion. It will make a good impression on travelers all around the world." Lee added.
