New Initiative to Make Dubai Hotels Go Green

Hotels in Dubai are set to go greener thanks to a new initiative launched by Dubai Tourism as part of the country’s sustainable vision.

The initiative would require hotels to meet 19 requirements pertaining mainly to the use of energy, food and water management, as well aa training programmes to form a sustainably-minded workforce.

In a bid to ensure the project is progressing as required, each hotel group must install sustainable committees to supervise activities.

“The regulated guidelines will help promote energy conservation and efficiency, as well as encourage environmentally sustainable practices across the local tourism inventory,” Yousuf Lootah, executive director at tourism development & investments, Dubai Tourism said.
