Wild Wadi Waterpark, owned and operated by Jumeirah Group, has earned the internationally recognised Green Globe Certification (GGC) following a recent sustainability audit.

The water park achieved a compliance score of 84% against the Green Globe Standard for its environmental efforts and sustainability management.

One of the primary techniques implemented to monitor and reduce water consumption was the use of an energy/water audit and the park became one of the first to implement the Defender filter by Neptune-Benson. The filter removes up to 99.9% of all impurities and saves 25% of chemical consumption which leads to reduced energy and water consumption.

In addition, the waterpark has replaced 85% of its lamps with more economical and environmentally friendly LED bulbs which have already resulted in significant cost and energy savings.

Green Globe Middle East Preferred Partner, Farnek Middle East LLC, independently verified the sustainability achievement. Sandrine Le Biavant, Director of Farnek Consultancy, said, In just one year, Wild Wadi has saved 9% on water consumption and reduced its carbon footprint by 7%, 10% on cooling and 5% on kitchen gas consumption, which is a remarkable performance.
