Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai Earns Green Globe Certification

Mar 13, 2013

The Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai has been awarded international Green Globe Certification (GGC). Following a sustainability audit conducted by Farnek Consulting—GGC’s exclusive partner in the Middle East—the certification marks a milestone for the 390-room 5-Star property.

According to Sandrine Le Biavant, division manager at Farnek Consulting, the hotel was committed to the certification process, involving team members at all levels and across all departments. Efforts included the launch of a waste separation and recycling program, as well as the encouragement of employees to switch off computers and lights when not in use. In light of the certification, the hotel will unveil new carbon footprint-reducing initiatives in 2013 and also create an internal forum to generate further ideas and proposals.

“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,” says Le Biavant. “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.”

GGC certified hotels have access to a web-based technology that enables them to track energy and water consumption as well as non-recyclable waste production, as well as calculate their CO2 emissions and analyze the savings on operational costs. More than 800 businesses in 50 countries have so far met the 337 standards of GGC.
