Radisson Blu Dubai to assist autism centre
Dubai, August 23, 2011
An engineering team from Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City will be visiting the Dubai Autism Centre for the sixth consecutive year this month to service all air-conditioning units and offer any other technical assistance.
Rezidor, Radisson Blu’s parent hotel group, launched its company-wide responsible business programme in 2001, which is dedicated to three main areas of responsibility including taking responsibility for the health and safety of employees and customers, respecting social and ethical issues in the company, as well as in the community and reducing negative impact on the environment.
Dubai Autism Center is the largest, most innovative and comprehensive nonprofit organization in the UAE serving children with autism spectrum disorders.
“We strongly believe that Responsible Business is getting more and more important and therefore our team regularly comes up with new environmental friendly activities,” said François Galoisy, the hotel’s general manager.
“Our latest initiative, the implementation of a specially created door hanger encouraging guests to get involved in the hotel’s responsible business activity, is certainly another footstep to reduce the negative impact on the environment,” he added.
Taking another step towards Responsible Business at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City, the team is introducing a new initiative whereby in-house guests may reward themselves with credit for Food & Beverage or extra Club Carlson points, Rezidor’s Loyalty Programme, in return of declining the daily housekeeping service.
This includes the change of linen and bath towels. The ‘You can make a difference!’ door hangers will be available in the hotel throughout the month of September. – TradeArabia News Service
