Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach is a Green Globe certified hotel
For a number of years now, we have been implementing solid sustainability practices in our company. We are very proud of the fact that this has also resulted in Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts becoming the most Green Globe certified hotel company in the world.
As a Green Globe certified hotel, Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach is internationally recognised as a property that constantly introduces initiatives with the aim to reduce and optimise its consumption of resources. This includes, but is not limited to, employing energy efficient lighting, reducing water consumption and effectively managing waste and use of chemicals.
Our commitment to environmental awareness is part of Shine, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ Global Sustainability Programme. Shine aims to give back and contribute towards the prosperity of each destination where we operate. The sustainability practices we pursue revolve around three key pillars – Environment, Employer and Social Sustainability – with Education forming the common thread amongst the three.
Reducing utility consumption
Focusing on three key areas to lower its environmental impact, Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach keeps its eye on energy, water and waste. The hotel monitors its energy consumption on a daily basis and identifies potential areas for saving. It has introduced LED lighting, controls temperatures in various areas of the hotel and raises awareness among employees about saving measures.
In 2011 and 2012, the hotel reduced around 200,000 KWH in electricity and 190,000 RTH in district cooling despite higher occupancy levels. In the same period, the hotel also saved enough water to fill three Olympic-sized swimming pools by optimising the hot water circulation efficiency. Waste recycling is also a priority for the hotel.
