“Sustainability has always been a top priority for us,” said Ghada Sadek, General Manager at Movenpick Tower&Suites Doha, in Qatar.

“We are very proud to earn the prestigious certification for the third consecutive year, and we will continue to work closely with Green Globe, improving our efforts, and creating a better environment for today and for future generations to come.”

For years, Movenpick Tower&Suites Doha has been engaged in numerous environmental activities, embracing the corporate responsibility business strategy. With their innovative approach to `Go Green`, this contemporary property sets an example in the Middle East.

Movenpick Tower&Suites Doha fosters responsible practices, such as curbing energy and water consumption to a minimum, to preserve the environment. The property pursues various projects on alternative green energy sources and water conservation. Waste segregation is being practiced, and reduction goals are specified. The purchasing policy favors local products and suppliers, and supports small businesses in the area. Guests are encouraged to minimize their environmental footprint and join community activities promoting awareness. The hotel offers a number of options for sustainable meetings and events.

As part of their ongoing efforts, Movenpick Tower&Suites Doha works closely with local projects and initiatives, such as the Qatar Sustainability Network, and active platform to inform, inspire, empower, educate, and build capacity and public involvement to improve the quality of life in Qatar. Most recently, the hotel hosted an event for the Qatar Green Buildings Council, announcing the launch of the Healthy Building Interest Group (HBiG) – another step towards enhanced awareness of what constitutes a healthy indoor environment. HBiG forms valuable partnerships and alliances in order to promote a widespread understanding of the relationship between indoor air quality and the wellbeing and safety of residents.

“Qatar is currently undergoing enormous growth, which gives us the chance to create healthy indoor environments by using the experiences and best practices utilized worldwide. Indoor air quality is an essential part of a green building process. With warm weather year-round, people in Qatar tend to spend over 90 per cent of their time inside. Through the commitment of developers and the implementation of indoor environmental quality standards, Qatar can become one of the healthiest countries in the world,” added Ghada Sadek.

The audit for Movenpick Tower&Suites Doha was conducted by Farnek Middle East, lead sustainability consultancy in the MENA region, and a Preferred Green Globe Partner.
