The hotel embarked on the certification in order to reduce the impact of its operation on the environment. Primarily, the key benefits it was hoping to gain by embarking on the initiative was to reassure guests and partners that they are dealing with a company which is environmentally sensitive and also to actively manage environmental hazards for its team of employees and the community around.
Commenting on the achievement, Raja Mumtaz, Environmental Health and Safety Manager for Amwaj Rotana, says “We have increasingly become aware of the impact of our business on the environment and were looking to adopt a good set of principles to apply and follow throughout the course of business. After numerous months of rigorously conducting testing and improving our work flow, we are proud to now achieve this level of certification.”
By developing best practices in almost every aspect of running its business, the hotel was able to build compliance towards the programme and subsequently attain the certification.
