We have #OzoneHeroe beacuse thanks to the control over the facilities by all our staff of the Hotel Barcelona Princess and a rational use by our guests, the electricity consumption per person in 2016 was reduced by 14% with respect by 2015.

This means that it has ceased to emit 164 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. This carbon dioxide saving is equivalent to the photosynthesis of a forest of 8,238 trees during a year.
