The 390-room Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai has been awarded Green Globe Certification (GGC) following an in-depth sustainability audit conducted by Farnek Consulting, GGCs exclusive partner in the Middle East.

Sandrine Le Biavant, Division Manager, Farnek Consulting, said, From the simplest step of encouraging team members to switch off computers and office lights when not in use, to the launch of a dedicated waste separation and recycling programme, the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai team has shown real commitment to achieve certification, with a clear two-year strategy and a well thought-out environmental plan ... Building on its newly certificated status, the hotel will roll out a number of new carbon footprint-reducing initiatives in 2013 and has also created an internal forum to generate further ideas and proposals.

Concerns regarding the substantial impact of tourism on the global environment are driving the hotels green commitment and Scott Butcher, General Manager, Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai, stressed that as a major consumer of energy and water, the hospitality industry needs to take sustainability seriously.

Sustainable practice is an essential part of our long term business strategy, which I firmly believe can be carried out without compromising on guest comfort or services. For environmentally conscious companies and travelers, the green agenda is a key consideration these days when choosing hotels. People do want to protect the planet by making responsible environmental choices. Now at the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai they can surely enjoy their stay with a clear conscience, said Mr. Butcher.

GGC certified hotels can have access to Farneks web-based Hotel Optimizer technology, which enables them to track their performance of energy and water consumption as well as non-recyclable waste production, calculate their CO2 emissions and analyze the savings on operational costs.
