Green Globe awards Movenpick Hotel Bur Dubai prestigious Gold status for environmental efforts

Green Globe has awarded the Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai the coveted Gold status for its consistent environmental efforts. The hotel has received green globe certification for the past consecutive year and it scored 83 per cent for its compliance.

The Dubai hotel’s engineering department is led by Awan Nazir and the team have developed the “Green Wrap” technology, an adiabatic cooling system that fits the chillers and help protect them against high temperatures and sandstorms. By regulating the temperature, small drops of water keep the surrounding atmosphere cool. By the end of 2015, the technology led to the reduction of 738,267 KWH, 465,846 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), and savings of more than Dh332,220 on the hotel’s electricity bill.

As well as conserving and reducing energy usage, the hotel’s eco-friendly practices include the expansion of the green areas and the planting of new plants and grass, in a bid to reduce CO2 emissions. Staff members are educated about sustainable practices, and the hotel takes part in fundraising events to raise money for worthy causes in the community.

Fabien Chesnais, the General Manager of Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai, stated:

“We are honoured to receive the Gold status from Green Globe. Being re-certified with a Green Globe award shows that our team is dedicated towards converting our hotel into an eco-friendlier hotel. We are committed to environmental, social and employee sustainability. Our hotel strives to follow sustainable environmental initiatives that will have a long-lasting impact to the community.”
