With the opening of a hotel in one of Poland’s largest industrial regions, we want to play a decisive and active role in the green transformation of Katowice. Environmentally-friendly technology can be found in every corner of the Mercure Katowice Centrum – from the planted wall on the building’s façade to sustainable solutions in the interior, including the use of environmentally-friendly materials, renewable energy sources, rainwater and an advanced monitoring system for the water and energy management.
Andrzej Kleeberg, Mercure Katowice Centrum’s general manager
