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

further improvement in the coming years as well as set an example and motivate
our partners to follow suit.”

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