New Carbon Offset Program at Tokyo Hotel in the Clouds
TOKYO, October 19, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, an award-winning luxury hotel, is launching a carbon emissions offset program. This initiative allows travelers to actively contribute to global environmental goals during their stay.
The pioneering program leverages the certified J-Credit Scheme administered by the Japanese government. Starting today, international guests can choose to participate in this environmentally conscious program during their booking process.
For a fee of 220 yen per person per night, guests can offset up to 15 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions per night. To opt in, guests can simply add on the "Offset Stay Certificate" when booking. Those booked under the "Healing Garden Stay" plan don’t need to do anything, as the program is included.

By launching the carbon offset program, we invite our international guests to join us in creating a greener future while experiencing our renowned hospitality."
Beyond the carbon offset program, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo aligns its mission with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined by the United Nations.
Those that stay at the hotel contribute to other SDGs, including:
- Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts — The hotel is dedicated to reducing CO2 emissions and preserving the environment by reducing waste, recycling, and decreasing resource consumption.
