AJMAN, May 21, 2018

Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman has secured its third consecutive Green Globe certification.

As part of its continued commitment to sustainable tourism, the hotel was also granted a Climate Neutral Business Travel certification for 2016 and 2017.

The recognition was issued by myclimate, a Swiss climate protection organisation, in partnership with Farnek Middle East. Ramada Ajman was awarded for its sustainable contribution to voluntary climate protection by offsetting 48.02 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission. Myclimate’s carbon offset projects aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on site by replacing energy sources with negative impact on the climate with clean and renewable alternatives.

Iftikhar Hamdani, general manager, commented: “On top of completing the prestigious Green Globe certification for three consecutive years, Ramada Ajman is proud to have another notable accomplishment as a climate-neutral hotel for partaking in high-quality carbon offset projects. Our green committee will persevere on its environmental duties and incessantly spread awareness on the impact of sustainability, beyond the hospitality and tourism sectors.”

Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman is the first hotel in the Northern Emirates to receive the Green Globe certification. The hotel’s initiatives include the zero landfill project, urban farm, reverse osmosis water plant, and biodiesel conversion from used cooking oil, to name a few.
