UAE Hotels set green trends ahead of COP28: Many sustainable perks await guests

It's fantastic to see the hotels in the UAE taking such proactive steps towards sustainability in preparation for the UN climate summit, COP28. These innovative initiatives will not only contribute positively to the environment but also inspire guests to adopt greener practices.

Here's a rundown of the cool and sustainable perks that guests can enjoy during the run-up to the summit:

  • 'Book a Stay, Plant a Tree' Initiative by Rove Hotels: Rove Hotels is leading the charge by committing to planting at least 28,000 trees by the end of 2023. For each room booked during the COP28 conference, Rove Hotels will plant a tree. This initiative aligns with their determination to make a positive impact on the environment and support the UAE's sustainability efforts.
  • Plastic Reduction Efforts by Deutsche Hospitality: Deutsche Hospitality's Al Hamra Village & Resort successfully participated in the #PlasticFreeJuly challenge, saving an impressive 128kg of plastic within a month. Additionally, their IntercityHotels have taken steps to reduce plastic waste by replacing old staff uniforms with sustainable polo T-shirts made from recycled bottles. This move resulted in saving 116.6kg of plastic.
  • Somerset Sustainability Passport Programme by The Ascott Limited: The Ascott Limited is engaging guests through their Somerset Sustainability Passport Programme. This initiative encourages guests to make sustainable choices during their stay, and in return, they are rewarded with discounts and perks. Guests can even redeem prizes such as the 'Cubby and Friends' collectibles as a token of appreciation for their commitment to green travel.

These initiatives showcase a strong commitment from UAE hotels to promote sustainability and contribute to the green economy. By incorporating such eco-friendly practices and encouraging guests to participate, these hotels are making a significant contribution to the global efforts to combat climate change. It's encouraging to see the hospitality industry taking proactive steps to align with the Year of Sustainability and the upcoming UN climate summit.
