Upscale Armani Hotel in Dubai receives Green Globe Certification for first time

The upscale Armani Hotel Dubai has been awarded the coveted Green Globe certification for the first time. The hotel, which was voted the most luxurious in the world, is located in the soaring Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

The luxury property received the certification after an extensive audit by FARNEK, Green Globe’s preferred partner in the Middle East, revealed that it complied with a strict set of sustainability criteria. This included efficient energy consumption, air quality and waste management and reduction.

Several green initiatives have been set in place at the hotel, including the fitting of water saving devices and water aerators to reduce water consumption. The hotel’s incandescent lights have all been replaced with energy-saving LED lights, and motion detectors have also been installed in back office areas to save energy.

A Food Waste Recycling machine has been introduced to the hotel, to ensure a zero-food waste goal. The machine eliminates food disposal costs, whilst reducing the property’s hotel’s carbon footprint. It also converts food waste into soil nutrients that can be used on nearby farms and landscaped areas.

A waste segregation system has also been installed, which sorts waste and disposes of it at designated recycling stations. This includes the safe destruction and disposal of burnt light bulbs, used batteries, and old printer cartridges, which are collected by a recycling agency.

Guests staying at the Armani Hotel Dubai can also access a Green page on in-room iPads, that encourages them to engage and get involved with a number of sustainability initiatives. Here, guests can also read about the hotel’s commitment to preserving resources and creating more sustainable options that benefit staff, guests, the local community and the world.

With demand for food banks on the rise across the world, the hotel is part of a project called UAE Food Bank, and was led by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. The scheme works alongside the Year of Giving’ initiative, and encourages business and resident to give food to those in need.

Armani Hotel Dubai has introduced a programme where unused, safe and non-displayed food is delivered fresh to the UAE Food Bank on a daily basis. Staff at the hotel and guests are encouraged to avoid the wastage of food resources, and invited them to make a difference to those who are underprivileged in nearby communities.

The lavish hotel is also a certified member of Emirates Environmental Group, and it donates gift vouchers that are then given to the dedicated volunteers of EEG to encourage community participation. At the hotel, staff members, partners and guests are encouraged to donate toys, clothes, blood and soap to those in need. The property takes part in annual events such as Walk for a Cause, clean-up programmes and the annual Earth Hour.
