Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai has received the Green Globe Certificate for the third year in running after having met the strict requirements set by Green Globe Standard 1.7. The hotel achieved an exceptional score of 80% in 2016 improving from 75% in 2015 and 72% in 2014.
It was made possible by strategic operational changes that helped to reduce energy and water consumption significantly during the period. The initiatives resulted in considerable energy savings exceeding the targeted amount by 5.1% in the 12 months, from January to December, last year. Energy consumption was reduced by 865,476 kWh resulting in a saving of AED 363,499 (USD 98.7k) while CO2 emissions were reduced by 424.50 tons which is equivalent to the planting 15,302 tree seedlings grown for 10 years or by 498 acres of forest in one year!
Scott Butcher, General Manager, Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai, said, “Since embracing the Green Globe programme, we have seen massive savings in terms of electricity and water consumption. We are delighted to receive the certification for the third consecutive year and would like to thank all our team for their commitment and dedication to the conservation of environment.”
