Ekaruna - - Press Highlights -

The U.S. Green Build­ing Coun­cil has awarded Alila Ja­bal Akhdar the LEED Sil­ver Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in the Build­ing De­sign and Con­struc­tion rat­ing sys­tem for New Con­struc­tion. De­vel­oped by the Oman Tourism De­vel­op­ment Com­pany SAOC (Om­ran), Alila Ja­bal Akhdar is the first de­vel­op­ment to be pre­sented with the pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional LEED cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Oman and por­trays a mile­stone in terms of achieve­ment for the de­vel­op­ment of in­fra­struc­ture in the Sul­tanate. In or­der to re­ceive such an es­teemed hon­our, a build­ing pro­ject must meet var­i­ous re­quire­ments such as sus­tain­able sites, wa­ter ef­fi­ciency, energy and at­mos­phere, as well as ma­te­rial re­sources. The Pres­i­dent of Alila Ho­tels & Re­sorts, Mark Edle­son, said, “a sound en­vi­ron­ment is es­sen­tial to so­cial well­be­ing and busi­ness sus­tain­abil­ity. We are proud to be part­ner­ing with Om­ran in this mean­ing­ful quest. At Alila, our vi­sion is to in­te­grate nat­u­ral con­ser­va­tion, com­mu­nity and com­merce, hence our green ef­forts ex­tend to and be­yond the op­er­a­tional as­pects so that we can make a pos­i­tive im­pact on the com­mu­nity – eco­nom­i­cally, so­cially and cul­tur­ally.”
