Sheraton Dubai Mall of the Emirates celebrates success of green practices

As the effects of global warming become more apparent and widely known, one hotel in Dubai is celebrating a successful year of environmental sustainability.

The Sheraton Dubai, Mall of the Emirates has rolled out a series of green practices across its property that has led to significant reductions in waste and energy.

In the two years since it first began implementing these efforts, the luxury hotel has recorded a five per cent reduction in electricity consumption, 17 per cent reduction in water usage, and 50 per cent reduction in excess waste at the property.

Following in the green footsteps of Dubai city, the hotel has launched the "Choose Your Fish Wisely" practice, which involves using locally-sourced, organic and sustainable seafood and ingredients that are used at its restaurants, in-room dining, and banqueting events.

"Green practices are of utmost importance and we have a corporate responsibility to protect the environment."

Explained Paul Dunphy, the General Manager of Sheraton Dubai Mall of the Emirates Hotel. Mr Dunphy continued:

"Our energy saving measures have been a great success and we aim continue these efforts."

Sheraton Dubai also offers a Make A Green Choice (MAGC) programme, which rewards guests with points or vouchers if they choose to go without full housekeeping services. These points and vouchers can then be redeemed at participating outlets.

The hotel will host a sustainability exhibition and conference this month, partnering with high-profile Dubai-based companies. The Sheraton property is directly connected to the Mall of the Emirates on Sheikh Zayed Road in the heart of Dubai.

Guests will have access to two rooftop swimming pools, a children's pool, a lavish spa, a fitness centre, and a variety of dining outlets including the Sanctuary Pool Lounge, Sanabel restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine, and Vantage with international culinary dishes.

Guest rooms and suites feature modern technology including interactive LCD TVs, universal docking station, high speed Internet and Wi-Fi, minibars, coffee and tea makers, and Sheraton Sweet Sleeper® Beds.
