Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Hajar Tower Makkah 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 & Residences Hajar Tower Makkah 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.
Using eco-friendly cleaning products
The laundry and housekeeping departments at Mövenpick Hotel & Residence Hajar Tower Makkah use 100% eco-friendly detergents and cleaning products throughout the hotel. The property also reduced its energy consumption by 23% by installing a motion light system and changing to LED lighting. In addition, water consumption has been reduced through the installation of low-flow heads in all guestroom sinks. The hotel has also introduced organic dishes in its lunch and dinner buffets, while being HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) certified for safety in food production.
