Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina Receives Green Key Certification

by Madaline Dunn

Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina, an IHG Hotel, has announced that it has received the Green Key Certification. This award makes it the first IHG hotel in the UAE to secure the certification, a standard for excellence in sustainable practices, awarded to businesses that adhere to strict criteria set by the Foundation for Environmental Education.

Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina highlighted that it has implemented several key measures which contributed to it securing the green key certification, focused on conserving resources and minimising environmental impact:

For example, the hotel conserves 80 per cent of its water by recollecting and recycling water from guest room wash basins and showers through an advanced water treatment plant. The water is then used to cool the building’s cooling towers.

It also uses 100 per cent LED lighting throughout the entire hotel, with aerated showerheads and tap heads, which result in 22 per cent energy savings.

EV chargers are also available for electric cars, with electric bikes provided for local transportation.

Raffi Torikian, General Manager of Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina, commented: “We are proud to contribute to the UAE’s Year of Sustainability initiative and demonstrate that luxury and sustainability can coexist harmoniously.”

Meanwhile, Chief Engineer Jethi Thomas added: “In an era where environmental consciousness is paramount, this certification underscores our pledge to go beyond traditional hospitality norms. It signifies a paradigm shift in the way we operate, demonstrating that every decision we make is a deliberate step towards a more sustainable future.

“We believe that our guests, like-minded individuals who value not only opulence but also the well-being of our planet, will find solace in knowing that their stay at Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina contributes to a global movement for a greener tomorrow.”
