Mövenpick Hotel Ankara contributes toward a sustainable future
Mövenpick Hotel Ankara is a modern 5-star hotel located in the Söğütözü Business District of Ankara, the Turkish capital city. Close to ministries, government buildings and major corporate headquarters, it is an excellent choice for business travelers. Within walking distance to fashionable shopping malls with cinemas, bowling and a kids’ club, it is also ideal for leisure travelers and situated next to the metro station. Mövenpick Hotel Ankara offers optimal comfort and ergonomic working space in 176 spacious rooms with city views, including 18 Deluxe Rooms and 10 Suites.
In 2018 Green Globe recertified Mövenpick Hotel Ankara for the 5th time. Most importantly, with this achievement Mövenpick Hotel Ankara was awarded Green Globe Gold Status. General Manager Atakan Turhan said, “I am extremely proud to be part of the team that have passed the Green Globe Certification for the 5th time and achieved Gold Status.”
Many sustainable initiatives have been implemented at the hotel. At the beginning of 2017, the property replaced existing lighting with 80% LED lighting in guest rooms, back of house areas, offices, meeting rooms, the lobby bar, restaurant and outdoor areas. In doing so a great deal of energy is saved on a daily basis. In addition, the centralized automation system controls air conditioning units in all guest rooms. This AC system automatically turns itself off to conserve energy when room windows are left open.
Staff actively support eco-friendly activities such as waste segregation. For example, as well as separating recyclable and non-recyclable waste in guest areas, they also separate all waste in back of house areas.
Water usage is routinely monitored to reduce consumption. Tap water economizers have been installed in guest areas that save tons of water every year.
Mövenpick Hotel Ankara continues to perform its sustainable practices and aims to increase them thereby contributing toward a sustainable future.
