Green Globe recertification awarded to Marriott hotel in Jumeirah

    23 Sep 2021

    Delta Hotels by Marriott, Jumeirah Beach Dubai has announced that the hotel has been

    recertified by Green Globe for the second consecutive year, GD Online reports.

    Located in the heart of Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR), the hotel is leading

    the way in exercising sustainable initiatives through routine checks including

    measuring the consumption of water, electricity, gas, and natural resources as

    well as waste volume at the property.

    “Effective energy and water saving measures have been implemented across the property

    during the 2019-2020 period, in line with Delta Hotels by Marriott Jumeirah

    Beach’s key environmental goals to optimize utilization of resources, through

    the data that was gathered and analyzed through this check,” the hotel

    said in a statement.

    During the quiet times of the pandemic, the hotel upgraded its systems with energy

    saving measures wherein all the staircase lights were replaced with motion

    sensors to dim lights when no movement is detected. This has resulted in energy

    savings of 435.12 Kw per day, a total of 13,053.60 Kw per month, it added.

    Talking about the recertification, Chief Engineer Binu Anandan said: “We are delighted

    to be recertified by Green Globe as it is the epitome of our efforts to build a

    more sustainable environment, in line with the UAE’s Sustainable Development

    Goals.

    “As a team, we endeavour to continue implementing new actions that will lead to

    further improvement in the coming years as well as set an example and motivate

    our partners to follow suit.”

    To meet water reduction targets, water saving aerators were also fitted in the guest

    rooms on wash basins, kitchen sinks, shower heads and bidet systems. Through

    this measure, the hotel now has a total water savings of 50 per cent with a

    flow rate of 36.5 litre/minute as compared to previous flow rate of 72

    litre/minute.

    The hotel also installed hands-free faucets in guest public restrooms last year.
