Hyatt Regency Dubai Going "Green"
Hyatt regency dubai becomes a part of "the green movement".
By installing sensor-operated faucets in the fitness centre and the hotel’s guestrooms, and using only recycled water for all landscaping purposes, Hyatt Regency Dubai supports the local energy-saving programme. However, becoming “green” is not only about saving energy and water; it is also about co-existing with the environment. In recent years, most industries have decided to go green and have introduced several concepts to sustain the environment.
Last December, Hyatt Regency Dubai was awarded ISO 14001:2004 certification, a management tool that enables an organisation to identify and control the environmental iajed impact of its activities, products or services and improve its environmental performance on an ongoing basis. In 2008, the hotel decreased its water consumption considerably by 24,580,222 litres and its electricity consumption by 1,935,000 kWh, showing that it is aware of the environmental influence that waste can cause.
According to Dubai’s Environment and Water Minister, by 2050, drinking water and electricity will be in short supply and fuel resources will be depleted. In addition, weather changes and natural catastrophes are more likely to occur, affecting natural assets.
Having been ISO-certified and with the continuous cooperation of employees, owners and business partners, Hyatt Regency Dubai can now call itself an eco-friendly hotel. This is in line with Hyatt Earth, a corporate policy that Hyatt established to demonstrate that the organisation is aware of environmental developments and contributes to sustainability. The corporate policy states “Hyatt is committed to protecting the environment to ensure the comfort and well-being of its guests and employees, and to respect the communities in which they operate.”
