Green Globe certification for Armani Hotel Dubai

The Armani Hotel Dubai has been awarded its first Green Globe certification.

General manager, Mark Kirby said: “The certification for Armani Hotel Dubai is a strong testament to our commitment to be a socially and environmentally responsible, focused on international best practices in energy and water use efficiency and sustainable development.”

Armani Hotel Dubai recently became part of the UAE Food Bank, an initiative announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

To drive the initiative, the hotel has put in place a clearly structured program whereby food is delivered to the UAE Food Bank on a daily basis. In addition, the hotel has new guidelines in place to avoid wastage of food resources and urges all staff members, partners and guests to join in the cause.

A Food Waste Recycling machine was also recently installed to achieve a zero food waste goal. It eliminates food disposal costs, reduces the hotel’s carbon footprint and converts food waste into soil nutrients for use on farms and landscaped areas. Another waste management initiative is the implementation of an efficient waste segregation system where waste is sorted and disposed of at designated recycling stations. Burnt-out light bulbs, used batteries and old printer cartridges are collected and sent to a recycling agency for safe destruction and recycling where possible.
