Best Green Hotel
Throwing light on the hotel’s sustainable activities, Freddy Farid, Area General Manager, Gloria Hotels & Resorts, says, Gloria Hotels has for a second time continuously saved AED 2.16 million on its electricity and water bills. “The property witnessed major improvements in a number of other key indicators including carbon footprint per occupied room, and food and waste reduction through the modification of their recycling programmes. These results were achieved through passion, dedication and teamwork, applying the Green Globe principles in improving economic, social and environmental stability contributing to Green Initiatives which in turn helped us win the ‘Best Green Hotel’ at the first Arabian Travel Awards,” Farid adds.
The award was given to Gloria Hotel and received by Bashar Turk, Director of Sales & Marketing and Aklilu Admekom (CIPD, CHT) Director of Talent & Career Development - Cluster
