Hotel Century Southern Tower (Odakyu Hotels Southern Tower Co.,Ltd.) fulfills its social responsibilities as a company and we have set two important challenges for the sustainable growth of society.
1.Hospitality Management in Safety and Security Training and Learning of First Aid, CPR and AED
Knowledge of First Aid, CPR and AED are very important to us. We have been taking the lifesaving skills training course regularly. Currently,half of the hotel’s staff are certified in basic First Aid.
In the event of a natural or manmade disaster such as fires, earthquakes, typhoon,etc., all our staff have been trained to start firefighting procedures and to quickly and safely evacuate and rescue all guests present on premises inside the building. We have also been actively involved with the firefighting training review board for fire defense every year by the Shibuya Fire Station.In November 2019, our activities were highly praised and we were awarded the certificate of commendation from the Shibuya Fire Chief.
Food and Hygiene Safety
We have been certified by the TOKYO FOOD HYGIENE MEISTER System certification. For more information about the TOKYO FOOD HYGIENE MEISTER System, please go to the website below: http://www.fukushihoken.metro.tokyo.jp/shokuhin/eng/ninshou/index.html
2. Environmental Action / Global Warming Prevention Energy Saving
We have introduced a Keycard system to control the lighting,heating and air conditioners when guest rooms are not in use. Smart control of the elevators operation from late at night to early in the morning. Building management systems have been put in place to control temperatures throughout the entire hotel, except for guest rooms.
Energy Saving Lightings
We have initiated that light must be turned off in the back space when not in use. We have introduced sensor activated lighting in the stairways. LED lighting is used at the entrance, in the hallways on the guest room floors, in some of the back spaces and in the ceilings of the 19th and 20th floors.
PET Bottle Caps Recycling for Polio Vaccination We collect used PET bottle caps and recycles them through the Eco Cap Movement, a nonprofit organization (NPO). The NPO collects bottle caps to fund vaccines for children in developing countries.To date, have donated 1,973,769 caps which have helped to provide vaccines for about 2,445 children in developing countries.
*800 caps earn 20 yen, which covers the cost of the polio vaccination for one child.
Preventing Environmental Degradation by Detergents Re-use towels and other linens at guest request. Shampoo,conditioner and body soap dispensers are to be installed in all guest roomsxcept for the executive rooms.
