Mövenpick Resort Taba 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 Resort Taba 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.
Mövenpick Resort El Quseir is a Green Globe certified hotel
We believe creating awareness and implementing best practices is of paramount importance. By nature, the hospitality industry is a large consumer of resources. In Quseir, we aim to reduce and optimise our consumption through the use of basic measures, such as energy-efficient lighting, water consumption reduction and a better management of waste and chemical use. As Green Globe certified hotel, Mövenpick Resort El Quseir, also emphasizes on keeping its surroundings and nature in its virgin state where possible. The pristine, untouched house reef directly located in front of the hotel is one of the most beautiful and diversified spots in the Red Sea. The resort’s onsite dive centre is ecologically and sustainably managed and limits the number of divers to 100 per day. Furthermore, a maximum of 25 divers is permitted in the water within the bay at any given time. And, in accordance with corporate and environmental responsibilities, resort staff organise underwater clean-up days on a regular basis.
Mövenpick Resort El Quseir was also the first hotel in Egypt to launch the fully biological plant TIA Compact Mini providing German know-how and technology. This plant has been developed particularly for a decentralised solution of wastewater treatment with highest functionality and modern energy-saving machinery. In combination with the mft membrane disinfection unit, the treated water can be used for irrigation but also to supply the laundry (potable water).
With this project the hotel continues to emphasise on sustainable business practices and underlines its strong commitment to responsible tourism.
