With great pride, Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island announces its latest accomplishment: earning the highly recognized Green Globe Certification (GGC) on a global scale.
This opulent retreat has continuously matched its eco-friendly practices with an extensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program since joining the prestigious Accor Group. It’s noteworthy because it’s the first property in Ras Al Khaimah to get this esteemed award.
“We are thrilled to have won this esteemed award,” General Manager Fabien Chesnais comments. In Ras Al Khaimah, sustainability is highly valued, and environmental preservation and awareness-building are essential.
We provide advice on polite behavior in addition to details about the heritage sites, natural surroundings, and local culture. Customers can reserve activities like mountain hikes, ziplining, village visits, landmark tours, and island cycling through our excursion desk.
The Green Globe Certification, which has 349 strict standards and is accepted by more than 800 institutions in 50 countries, is the industry benchmark for sustainability in the travel and tourism sector. The Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island’s dedication to sustainability not only helps the environment but also results in significant cost savings.
The resort’s environmentally conscious efforts include creative methods for effective waste management and energy reduction. The resort keeps track of how much energy is used each day, and in order to cut down on waste, it uses motion sensors and digital thermostats in the rooms to set nominal temperature objectives for inhabited areas.
Occupancy sensors are installed in employee areas, and energy-efficient LED lighting is used. Beginning operations in November 2023, the Eco Pure water purification system will serve as the on-site bottling facility that recycles glass bottles to lessen carbon emissions and keeps about 50,000 plastic bottles out of the waste stream each year.
The resort uses electric buggies for employee transportation, and also offers non-plastic amenities and mobile room access to cut down on single-use plastic. Grey water is also beneficially used to fertilize the resort’s landscaping.
Public spaces often feature works of local art, whether they are murals, wall décor, outdoor sculptures, or food exhibits that highlight regional specialties. Every week, The Market offers unique Emirati cuisine, and on public holidays, there are live cultural events that highlight the region’s customs.
For beach and landscape monitoring, including a trap-neuter-release program for cats and turtle rehabilitation, the resort works with the local animal protection society. The long-term goal is to collaborate with Emirates Nature WWF to raise employee and customer understanding of conservation and the impact of wildlife.
Furthermore, in line with Green Globe’s objectives, Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island places a high priority on culturally rich guest experiences and community involvement. They have achieved this significant milestone thanks to their positive and forward-thinking initiatives, and they will keep pushing for a future that is more ecologically conscious and sustainable.
