SHARJAH, June 11, 2024

DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences, in partnership with Beeah, celebrated World Oceans Day with an underwater and shoreline clean-up campaign that raised awareness about the importance of preserving our oceans and shorelines.

Team members of the hotel, who participated in the campaign, collected waste and debris from both underwater and shoreline areas, contributing to a cleaner and healthier marine ecosystem of one of the beaches of Sharjah.

Ligia Brasoveanu, General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences, said: "We are happy to celebrate World Ocean Day with such a meaningful initiative. Our team members, in collaboration with Beeah and the Filipino Scuba Diving Club, have shown incredible dedication to preserving our natural surroundings.”

“It is our responsibility to protect our oceans, and today’s efforts are a testament to our ongoing commitment protecting the environment.”

Beeah operates in several industries that are critical to shaping an environmentally positive future and developing sustainable, smart cities.

Its waste collection and city cleaning operations are the largest and most digitally-enabled in the UAE. Beeah is also fast-growing in the region, including in Saudi Arabia and Egypt, forming strategic partnerships to support sustainability targets across borders.

“We applaud the initiative of Double Tree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences and the hands-on work done by the Filipino Scuba Diving Club,” said Rafael Lopez, CEO – Waste Collection and Processing, Beeah Tandeef.

“Beeah Tandeef  is proud to support collaborative climate-positive efforts such as this one. Waste collection and transport is only a small part of the equation, but together, we have amplified preservation efforts for marine ecosystems and the environment at large.”

DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences said it is committed to ongoing sustainability efforts through implementing Hilton’s Travel with Purpose environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy, which focuses on promoting responsible travel and tourism.

The hotel said it continues to implement eco-friendly practices, from reducing single-use plastics to conserving energy and water. – TradeArabia News Service
