Dusit Thani Dubai’s Endeavour for the Environment
28 September, 2012
Dusit Thani Dubai has again been recognized by the regional environmental body, Emirates Environmental Group (EEG), for their continued efforts in their green initiatives and participation in recycling and sustainability activities.
The hotel was noted for being the most active participant in EEG’s Tetra Pak Beverage Carton recycling campaign, depositing an average of 114kg of beverage cartons since September 2011 monthly.
James Wilson, Dusit Thani Dubai’s General Manager, noted: “Recycling and environment protection is a concern of all our colleagues. We take great pride in minimizing our impact on the environment, whether that be within the hotel or at our accommodation. Our Engineering and Stewarding teams lead the way in the hotel’s efforts and are continually reviewing our initiatives and policies to ensure we are achieving the best we can.
“The protection of the environment is everyone’s responsibility; the planet doesn’t just belong to us. While collecting Tetra Pak beverage carton may seem like a small effort in the grand scheme of things, preventing on average an additional 100kg of garbage entering our landfills every month having an impact on protecting the world we live in.”
