Grand Millennium Al Wahda saves big with green initiatives

ABU DHABI, May 28, 2018

Grand Millennium Al Wahda Hotel Abu Dhabi announced cost savings of over Dh100,000 ($27,224.2) over the last year as a result of its commitment to green initiatives.  

The hotel has resolved to reduce its carbon footprint through a series of environmental waste management initiatives, which have generated a 43.1 per cent waste reduction and a 17.5 per cent increase in recycling on the previous year.

The initiative was developed in accordance with Tadweer’s Annual Waste Reduction Action Plan (Wrap) and led by general manager Enad Tannous, and managed by Govind Kochak, director of engineering and Bijender Dayanand, environmental health and safety officer.

According to Kochak, the hotel was able to achieve these impressive numbers by implementing waste segregation at source through provision of separate collection bins on each floor, as well as in the kitchens, food and beverage outlets and garbage rooms. In addition, the staff are given regular orientations on best environmental practices and sustainability programs, in line with the organisation’s philosophy and methods.

“We understand the importance of keeping our staff motivated. We encourage group discussions, offer seminars and presentations, and share daily updates during team briefings,” noted Dayanand.

“I am extremely proud of my team’s remarkable achievement, which has been well received within the Millennium & Copthorne group. We are motivated to keep the momentum and reduce these numbers even further, for example, we are currently working on identifying sustainable alternatives to plastic," Tannous concluded. - TradeArabia News Service
