MANILA, Philippines — DoubleDragon Corp. has raised the bar on its commitment to sustainability through one of Hotel101’s first overseas projects.

The property developer owned by Edgar “Injap” Sia II and Tony Tan Caktiong said Hotel101-Niseko is set to become the first hotel in the whole of Niseko, Hokkaido Japan to secure CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency) rating.

CASBEE is Japan’s authoritative framework for evaluating the environmental performance of buildings.

 This comes after Hotel101 Global Pte. Ltd, in partnership with engineering firms Kamita Sekkei and Technocrew, alongside the contractor of Hotel101-Niseko project Iwata Chizaki Inc., signed a commitment to the creation of the environmentally forward Hotel101-Niseko.

 DoubleDragon said the commitment 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.

“We believe that sustainability is a core aspect of the Hotel101 brand which will enable it to thrive in a rapidly changing world,” Hotel101 Global CEO Hannah Yulo-Luccini said.

“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,” Yulo-Luccini said.

 According to DoubleDragon, 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. 

The company said Hotel101-Niseko’s structure is designed to promote sustainability through green-inspired architecture and the use of technology that supports efficient and eco-friendly operations. 

“We see Hotel101 Global to be known globally as one of the most eco-friendly hotels globally,” Sia said. Sia said the 482-room Hotel101-Niseko project, which is set to be one of the largest hotels in Niseko, is expected to soon become the top-of-mind hotel destination for both the local domestic Japanese and overseas tourists.
