The initiative is also in line with Dubai’s goal to become one of the world’s leading sustainable tourism destinations.
Dubai Sustainable Tourism Awards are held to recognise those companies within the tourism sector that have demonstrated good practices when it comes to reducing the company’s carbon footprint, in efforts to promote sustainability of the tourism industry. The total CO2 emissions released by the event was calculated and financially compensated into a project that uses energy efficiency to minimize fossil fuel impacts.
Two Seasons Hotel & Apartments received the Dubai Sustainably Award from H.E. Helal Almarri, director general, Departments of Tourism and Commerce Marketing for the four-star hotel category.
“Since maintaining the environment is one of the essential values of the property we try to raise the awareness to our employees and our guests about sustainable environment to lessen the carbon emission from the hospitality sector in the Middle East. We are proud to be recognised by Dubai Sustainability Tourism for our hard work to improve the sustainability practices in our hotel, “ said Freddy Farid, managing director, The Two Seasons Hotel Management.
