Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi gets Leed certification

ABU DHABI, April 17, 2017

Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas have been awarded the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (Leed) certificate.

Leed-certified buildings are resource efficient; they use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The hotels team has been deeply engaged in sustainable activities for a cleaner and greener future. Some of the key initiatives include sympathetic irrigation reducing landscape water consumption by 50 per cent through the creation of dry Wadi beds and planting native and suited vegetation matching the climate environment.

They applied a Fundamental Refrigerant Management system, to ensure the use of non-ozone depleting refrigerants. Creating a Sand Dune Protection Programme has added further protection from flooding and erosion of the beach and directly aids the sustainable protection objectives of the Hawksbill Turtles habitat on Saadiyat Beach. A unique natural environment, this is one of the last remaining coastal dune systems in Abu Dhabi.

Federico Mantoani, general manager, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, said: “This award recognises key achievements in our corporate social responsibility programme and encourages us to raise the awareness and activity programme further with our employees, guests, visitors and partners to work together to nurture the natural unique coastline that we all enjoy and benefit from on Saadiyat Island." - TradeArabia News Service
