Mövenpick Beach Resort Al Khobar
Mövenpick Beach Resort Al Khobar is committed to being the best in sustainable development and operations. It recognises the importance of reducing its carbon footprint by ensuring that current practices are measured and evaluated, and effective environmental policies are strictly implemented.
The resort integrates its Environmental Management Systems (EMS) for energy, water and waste. On a daily basis, the resort monitors and records its energy and water utilities consumption. Monthly reports are generated to compare and identify opportunities to reduce usage further. Installation of energy and water efficient equipment such as LED lights, dual flushing system for toilets and water saver or aerator for faucets are utilised. Proper segregation of wastes and recycling are also applied.
The resort also sourced 85% of its produce locally, especially when they are in season, to support environmentally positive farming, reduce pollution and combat biodiversity loss. This does not only ensure fresher food, but also provides an important investment in the local economy, protecting the Kingdom’s food heritage.
Furthermore, staff and management regularly undergo training to increase their knowledge in sustainability issues and develop their skills in managing the resort’s sustainability.
