Jeddah InterContinental...going green

Jeddah InterContinental embraces green technology

JEDDAH, December 31, 2014

Jeddah InterContinental Hotel, a luxury hotel in Saudi Arabia, has introduced green technology into its daily operations by redesigning its database and installing new eco-energetic green technology devices offered by Samsung Electronics.

Green technology helps preserve energy, protect the environment, reduce costs and increase productivity.

Abdulrahman AlZahrani, director of sales and marketing at Jeddah InterContinental Hotel, said: “We no longer need to use papers or pens in our daily work. By using Samsung’s Note tablets, taking notes and recording video conferences has never been easier and responsible towards the environment. We’ve also opted for rubber-coated wires to link our conference rooms to cut on tape. In addition to that, our meeting rooms have been equipped with motion sensors to automatically dim down lights when detecting absence in the room.”

To highlight the importance of embedding green technologies in a working environment, Jae Cheon Park, general manager of Samsung in Saudi, said: “The concept of green technology emerged as an eco-friendly technical solution which can limit carbon emissions and global warming. To implement this concept, Samsung Electronics provided technical products as considerate solutions of their ecological footprint, by reducing costs and limiting energy sources to the best utilisation methods.”

Samsung products are free of materials harmful to the environment and consume less energy thanks to its backlight LED technology screens, the company said. – TradeArabia News Service
