Posted: 16-May-18 08:33

Upon receiving a Green Globe award for the third consecutive year, the Gloria Hotel Dubai welcomes this latest recognition to their green efforts with a declaration of intent to continue their environmentally sustainable practices. After achieving a 78 percent "greenness" score the stylish Dubai hotel stands out for being one of the emirate's most eco-friendly properties.

Gloria Hotel Dubai leading the way in sustainable tourism

After being awarded a Green Globe certification for the third year in a row, Gloria Hotel Dubai is keen to exploit its status as one of Dubai's greenest hotels.

With a collection of spacious suites, a soothing spa, state-of-the-art meeting facilities and fitness area, Gloria Hotel Dubai, provides an idyllic holiday space in which to relax and unwind whilst in the know you’re causing a minimum impact on the environment. Add to this a selection of excellent dining venues and a lounge with sublime sea and city views and you have a recipe for eco holiday perfection.

With a score of 78 per cent after an exhaustive audit conducted by FARNEK, Green Globe’s preferred partner in the Middle East, the Gloria Hotel was recertified as a green property, a title it proudly upholds.

Speaking about Green Globe's latest recognition, Gloria Hotels and Resorts’ Area General Manager, Freddy Farid, said:

“Ever since we started our sustainability journey at Gloria Hotels, we realised that sustainability is no longer simply about reducing harm to the environment but taking on worthwhile initiatives that will benefit the environment. These actions then became part of our daily culture – you cannot move forward if you take more from the community than you put back into it. My team has realised this and accomplished our Green Globe aims.”

Gloria Hotel Dubai’s ongoing commitment to sustainable practices is a core part of its business strategy with a number of eco-friendly initiatives to engage staff at all levels but also guests and stakeholders. There is also a policy in place to use part of their profits to support a variety of community programmes.

Having reduced its CO2 emissions by 4.27 per cent this year, the hotel has offset an additional 72.15 tons in the past year, which means an increase of 12.35 tons from 2016. This all translates as the hotel getting greener with each passing year.

In addition to the above statistics, a new EMS project has been successfully implemented to save a significant amount of energy in 2018, pushing the hotel’s environmental practices to the highest levels. Other steps towards the improvement of the Gloria Hotel’s green credentials are the recently installed LED lighting, the introduction of water and light sensors and the launch of energy saving awareness programmes that have positively impacted in the hotel’s overall resorts. Put together all these efforts have helped the hotel save some 2,504 Megawatt hours of energy so far and around 10,306 cubic metres of water.

Furthermore, continuous recycling efforts have resulted in a reduction of around 172 tons of waste not being disposed of in a landfill and the placement of recycling bins in the hotel’s public areas and meeting rooms has further contributed to improving the eco-conscious behaviour of staff and guests. And if all that wasn’t impressive enough, the hotel’s food waste volume has also significantly dropped to an all-time low thanks to a newly-introduced waste reduction programme and monitoring in the onsite restaurants. From 2016 to 2017 food waste decreased by 6.95 per cent.

Eco-responsible holidaymakers mindful of their carbon footprint over should have no qualms about investing in a Dubai holiday if they’re staying at the Gloria Hotel, doubtlessly one of the greenest hotels not just in Dubai, but in the whole world!
