Hotel101 Global Pte. Ltd. (“Hotel101 Global”), in partnership with esteemed engineering firms Kamita Sekkei and Technocrew, alongside the contractor of Hotel101-Niseko project Iwata Chizaki Inc., recently signed its commitment to the creation of the environmentally forward Hotel101-Niseko. This endeavor cements the partners’ joint vision for a property that not only meets eco-efficient operational standards, but  also  sets  a  benchmark  for  sustainability  in  the region.

Hotel101-Niseko is set to become the first hotel in the whole of Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan to secure a Comprehensive Assessment  System  for  Built Environment  Efficiency (CASBEE) rating,  Japan’s  authoritative  framework  for  evaluating  the  environmental performance of buildings.

Kamita Sekkei  and  Technocrew  bring  expertise  with  strong  portfolios  that  include  work  for Hokkaido University, the City of Sapporo, and the City of Obihiro, among others. Under the skilled construction of Iwata Chizaki Inc., known for the iconic Chitose International Airport, Hotel101–Niseko is poised to become a beacon of sustainable development. This partnership aligns closely with   the   values   laid   out   in   the   recently   signed   pact, which   outlines   a   commitment   to environmentally responsible practices and the integration of smart systems to enhance efficiency. The structure of Hotel101–Niseko is designed to promote sustainability through green-inspired architecture and the use of technology that supports efficient and eco-friendly operations.

“We believe that sustainability is a core aspect of the Hotel101 brand, which will enable it to thrive in a rapidly changing world,” said Hotel101 Global CEO Hannah Yulo- Luccini. “By integrating a sustainable mindset in the way that we build our hotels  as  well  as  sustainable  practices  in  our  day-to-day  hotel  operations,  we  protect  the environment, appeal to the new generation of eco-conscious guests, and reduce operational costs which helps ensure the long-term viability of Hotel101.

“In extraordinary environments such as  the  height  of  winter  in  Hokkaido,  it  is  not  an  easy endeavor to achieve a green rating,” added Ms. Yulo-Luccini.

Achieving  a  CASBEE  rating  underlines  Hotel101–Niseko’s  role  as  a  leading  example  of  green hospitality  solutions,  showcasing  its  success  in  integrating  environmental  considerations  into every facet of its architecture and operations. Located on a 1.17-ha site in Niseko-Hirafu, Hokkaido Prefecture, Hotel101-Niseko is positioned amid the region’s natural scenery, chosen for its commitment to environmental preservation. Hotel101 Global aims to provide an eco-friendly hospitality experience that aligns with the environmental values of guests and meets the rigorous sustainability standards set by the local community.

“With  the  upcoming  Bullet  Train  straight  from  Tokyo  to  Niseko,  we  see  the  482-room Hotel101–Niseko project to soon become the top of mind hotel destination for both the local domestic Japanese and overseas tourists visiting Niseko,” said DoubleDragon Chairman Edgar Injap Sia II. “We see Hotel101 Global to be known globally as one of the most eco-friendly hotels.”
