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 Lakes Towers, 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.
Building Management System (BMS)
Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Tower has been in the forefront in taking steps towards the green initiative through the use of the Building Management System (BMS) to control and monitor all the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems to save energy consumption. The installations of the new ecology exhaust system for urban bar & kitchen to promote a safety environment and to wipe out smoke and smell is located in the basement area.
The hotel monitors its utilities on a daily basis as well as monthly energy comparisons in order to reduce the energy consumption and implementation by utilizing renewable energy sources. An energy committee has been formed and has introduced a sustainability and energy monitoring throughout the hotel. This ensures that ongoing environmental performance, identification of environmental risks; recording and monitoring of impacts and implementing environmental and social sustainability measures are all in order.
Effective waste management by sorting, distributing and recycling via eco-friendly collection agencies is also a priority for the hotel. About 24.74% of energy consumption has been saved since January 2014 through the optimizer reports and 52 tons of CO2 emission has been saved from last year.
