DUBAI – A hotel in Ajman has been making it safer for us to breathe in the UAE, offsetting 48.02 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission through sustainable tourism.
For its eco-friendly initiative, the Ramada Hotel & Suites in Ajman was recently awarded its third consecutive Green Globe certification for sustainable tourism.
The hotel was also granted a Climate Neutral Business Travel certification for 2016 and 2017 by Swiss organisation myclimate and Farnek Middle East.
The Ramada Hotel & Suites in Ajman has been recognised locally and regionally and has earned various awards and certifications for its different environmental and resource-saving initiatives.
It is credited as the first hotel in the UAE to introduce an in-house composting machine that turns 500kg of organic trash into compost that it uses in the urban farm right in the property premises.
“On top of completing the prestigious Green Globe certification for three consecutive years, Ramada Ajman is proud to have another notable accomplishment as a climate-neutral hotel for partaking in high-quality carbon offset projects,” said Iftikhar Hamdani, general manager.
“Our green committee will persevere on its environmental duties and incessantly spread awareness on the impact of sustainability, beyond the hospitality and tourism sectors,” Hamdani said. GAD/Expat Media
