Movenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach Dubai Awarded Green Globe Certification for fourth year

The Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach has been awarded for its sustainable efforts after it was recently certified by Green Globe for the fourth year in a row.

Located on The Walk in the Jumeirah Beach Residence in Dubai, the luxury hotel was recognised for its environmental practices and staff education, as well as its participation in community projects. Philip Jones, the General Manager of the hotel, explained:

“We are delighted to be re-certified by Green Globe once again. I am very proud to say that Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach is dedicated to environmentally sustainable tourism and this has been demonstrated through a variety of initiatives such as efficient energy conservation practices, and awareness campaigns within the team and outside.”

A full audit was recently carried out at Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach by Green Globe’s preferred Middle East Partner FARNEK. The property has implemented environmental practices including the replacement of conventional lighting with LED lights throughout the hotel, which reduces energy consumption, and this year, the hotel will install LED lighting in car parking areas too.

Last year, staff at the hotel were educated by the external contractor DUSLCO about the importance of waste recycling and segregation. Mr Jones also commented:

“Each one of us can really make a difference by acknowledging our responsibility as global citizens and this is reflected in the concerns we all have in making sure we operate at the highest environmental standards possible.”

The Dubai hotel took part in the Kilo of Kindness charity event last year, collecting more than 124 kilogrammes of school supplies and clothing which was then presented to the Senses Centre. The event is a part of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts sustainable program Shine, and during the campaign, hotel guests were asked to donate a kilo of goods to the Senses Centre, a charity that provides care, rehabilitation and accommodation for children with special needs.

The hotel will take part in the Soap for Hope programme, which involves the collection of soap slivers from the hotel that are recycled and processed, and then redistributed to disadvantaged communities in countries such as Cambodia, Indonesia and Kenya.

Green Globe is an internationally-recognised environmental certification which is awarded to businesses within the travel and tourism sector that operate green practices and are seen to be conserving energy, water and other resources.
