Trusted by over 70 countries, EarthCheck is an internationally recognized environmental management and certification program designed for the Travel and Tourism industry. It helps determine a company’s standard of environmental, social, and economic performance and requires compliance to internationally recognized standards.
In order for Dusit Thani Dubai to gain EarthCheck Certified status, the five-star luxury hotel was required to submit a year’s worth of operational data to EarthCheck for Benchmarking purposes. This was then compared to the operational data submitted by similar organizations, before being rated against Baseline and Best Practice levels.
Dusit Thani Dubai was also required to submit to independent, third party auditing, to verify the accuracy of their sustainability claims. Their policies require the use of energy-efficient lighting, the minimization of water consumption, recycling of solid waste products and use of recycled products whenever possible. This has resulted in a decrease in Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) for the hotel’s operations.
"It is Dusit Thani Dubai’s thrust to continually ensure that all its initiatives gear towards providing a holistic experience to all its guests, putting high level of importance to create awareness, protect and save Mother Earth. We believe that our collaborated efforts no matter how big or small can make a difference, the kind that can change the world."shares Prateek Kumar, general manager of Dusit Thani Dubai.
