Green Globe recently recertified Mövenpick Hotel Apartments Al Mamzar Dubai after a comprehensive audit was undertaken by the property. Energy, water and waste are monitored on a regular basis and targets set accordingly. In line with its sustainability management plan, the hotel makes consistent efforts to reduce energy and water consumption and waste. The goal this year is to reduce energy usage and waste by 3%.
To stimulate regional economic activity, seasonal ingredients are used in the hotel’s contemporary all day dining restaurant, Spices that offers exotic Asian creations and traditional Swiss cuisine to world classics. Local products including dates and Arabic coffee are also served.
The end of last year was busy with the hotel supporting various charitable causes. Mövenpick Hotel and Resorts annual A Kilo of Kindness campaign was held in September where guests and members of the local community were asked to donate food, clothing and educational supplies to support the Beit Al Khair Society. The organisation aims to help those in need including the poor and elderly, widows, divorced women, sick, low-income families, families of prison inmates, the disabled, people with special needs, orphans and students. A total of 352 kilos of food, school supplies, and clothing donations were given to the Society as part of the UN International Day of Charity.
Staff members also participated in the Beat Diabetes Walk, an initiative designed to raise community awareness regarding diabetes that is hosted by the Landmark Group. Other environmental programs included Clean Up UAE 2018 where hotel members joined with other volunteers of the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) to clean up surrounding natural areas. In addition, lights were turned off at the property for an hour as part of annual Earth Day celebrations.
