PortAventura to open its first carbon-neutral hotel in June

Colorado Creek will be PortAventura’s first carbon-neutral hotel and in time, the park will aim to extend this commitment to other areas of the resort
– Fernando Aldecoa
PortAventura has announced the opening of its first carbon-neutral hotel on 1 June, with the popular Spanish destination affirming its commitment to reducing its environmental footprint.

Called Hotel Colorado Creek, the new addition will be the theme park and resort's sixth hotel. Offering 150 bedrooms, the hotel is inspired by the Far West gold rush and will offer 4-star accommodation, with direct access to PortAventura Park. The opening will bring the resort's total number of rooms up to more than 2,200.

"Colorado Creek will be PortAventura’s first carbon-neutral hotel and in time, the park will aim to extend this commitment to other areas of the resort," said Fernando Aldecoa, general director of PortAventura.

"PortAventura is continuing to consolidate its commitment to the environment with a responsible and sustainable management model, a cornerstone of the company’s ESG (environmental, social and governance) policy."

The development is the latest in a number of eco-friendly initiatives taken by the operator, including a pledge to be plastic free by 2020 and to source all of its electricity from renewable energy sources that produce zero carbon emissions. PortAventura has also teamed with carbon management company Clean CO2 to find ways to further reduce its carbon output.
