Pullman Dubai JLT secures Green Globe certification

by Madaline Dunn

The Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lakes Towers Hotel has announced that it has secured its first Green Globe certification. This is a worldwide certification and improvement programme that has been developed especially for the travel and tourism industry.

During an independent audit and assessment by UAE-based sustainability consultancy Farnek – Green Globe’s preferred partner in the Middle East – the property complied with or exceeded more than 380 rigorous sustainability indicators.

The hotel met criteria such as implementing energy-efficient technologies, reducing water consumption, practising waste management and recycling, supporting local communities, high levels of guest satisfaction, promoting sustainable tourism and overall sustainable operations and management.

Farnek’s dedicated consultancy and auditing teams supported the hotel’s management team, explaining the criteria set by Green Globe and developing a sustainability plan for the hotel that aligned with Green Globe requirements and the ACCOR group’s sustainability goals.

Sushanth Nambiar, Cluster General Manager commented: “We are proud to have been awarded the prestigious Green Globe certification, reflecting our commitment and continued efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, by implementing a range of measurable sustainability initiatives.

“We have set and will continually review our energy, water and waste performance against a host of exceptionally high operational standards. Our Green Globe certification is an independent endorsement of our efforts, which contributes positively towards the UAE’s transition towards a greener economy and its net zero ambitions.”

Muna Al Nahdi, Head of Sustainability & Consultancy, Farnek, said: “The Pullman JLT Dubai, is clearly socially responsible, determined to follow international best practice, especially when addressing energy and water efficiency, as well as reducing food waste. The hotel’s progressive management team has demonstrated its commitment, not only to the environment, but also to its guests, staff and the local community, placing sustainability at its core.”
