Wake up and smell the ‘green’ cof­fee

In line with the UAE Gov­ern­ment’s on­go­ing com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity, Ne­spresso con­tin­ues work­ing on cof­fee cap­sule re­cy­cling with lo­cal part­ner Bee’ah. They cel­e­brated In­ter­na­tional Re­cy­cling Day with hos­pi­tal­ity part­ners. The part­ners share their thou

This In­ter­na­tional Re­cy­cling Day, we are proud to af­firm the mes­sage of re­source re­cov­ery through our part­ner­ship with Ne­spresso. As an in­dus­try leader in en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, Bee’ah en­cour­ages the adop­tion of a cir­cu­lar econ­omy and ac­tively seeks op­por­tu­ni­ties that un­lock the po­ten­tial of used ma­te­ri­als. By col­lab­o­rat­ing with Ne­spresso, we have man­aged to achieve a zero waste re­cov­ery process for the cap­sules. This part­ner­ship is an ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of sus­tain­able busi­ness prac­tices, through its pos­i­tive im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment and the in­dus­try.

Re­cy­cling is one of the best ways to have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the planet and to make sure that our fu­ture gen­er­a­tions live in a healthy en­vi­ron­ment. In ad­di­tion to be­ing good for us as hu­man be­ings, it is im­por­tant for our nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. Re­cy­cling helps re­duce waste, pol­lu­tion and global warm­ing. It also re­duces the con­sump­tion of raw ma­te­ri­als, which in turn helps to pre­serve nat­u­ral re­sources while grow­ing and de­vel­op­ing our busi­ness ini­tia­tives.

Ne­spresso has been mak­ing great strides in con­tribut­ing to sus­tain­abil­ity through its ‘Pos­i­tive Cup’ strat­egy, which seeks to cre­ate pos­i­tive im­pact for farm­ers, con­sumers and the so­ci­ety at large, while car­ing for the en­vi­ron­ment. Lo­cally, a large fo­cus of Ne­spresso’s strat­egy is on re­cy­cling and as­sist­ing its part­ners in the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor achieve their green tar­gets by mak­ing the process fric­tion­less; an in­creas­ingly cru­cial ne­ces­sity for many ho­tels. The has­sle-free ser­vice starts with free and reg­u­lar col­lec­tion from the part­ner’s premises, be­fore all the com­po­nents of the cof­fee cap­sule are pro­cessed.

As we are in the ho­tel busi­ness, re­cy­cling be­comes all the more im­por­tant and a greater re­spon­si­bil­ity for us. A lot of waste is pro­duced by us and it is our job to re­duce it and help the planet. Re­cy­cling waste is very im­por­tant as harm­ful chem­i­cals and green­house gases are re­leased from rub­bish in land­fill sites. Re­cy­cling helps to re­duce the pol­lu­tion caused by waste. Re­cy­cling also re­duces the need for raw ma­te­ri­als so that the rain­forests can be pre­served.

I would like to thank Ne­spresso for sup­port­ing us to be­come more sus­tain­able in line with Ac­corHo­tels’ im­ple­men­ta­tion of Planet 21. Ne­spresso’s idea of re­cy­cling the cap­sules is a great ini­tia­tive to­wards sus­tain­able devel­op­ment. The train­ings and tools we’ve re­ceived from Ne­spresso to make this hap­pen have also al­lowed the Pull­man Ho­tel in Jumeirah Lakes Tow­ers to im­ple­ment the re­cy­cling ini­tia­tive across our food and bev­er­age out­lets. We are grate­ful for al­low­ing us to be a part of this beau­ti­ful ini­tia­tive.

Re­cy­cling is good for the en­vi­ron­ment and re­quires far less en­ergy and uses fewer nat­u­ral re­sources. Re­cy­cling also of­fers sig­nif­i­cant en­ergy sav­ings over man­u­fac­tur­ing with vir­gin ma­te­ri­als. Man­u­fac­tur­ing with re­cy­cled alu­minum cans that are used heav­ily in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, uses less en­ergy, pre­vents global warm­ing, and re­duces wa­ter pol­lu­tion. We are glad to be a part of this ini­tia­tive to help pre­serve our nat­u­ral re­sources for the fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.
