Committed to sustainability, HMH – Hospitality Management Holdings is continuing to progress its ECO Vision 2020, with the aim of reducing energy and water consumption at the hotels it manages by 20 per cent year-on-year.
The company’s CEO, Laurent Voivenel explained: “We have been conducting regular audits across our properties to measure, manage and reduce our carbon footprint. We have developed practical, cost-effective strategies to reduce our carbon footprint by upgrading infrastructure and changing behaviours. Actions such as these are critical to mitigating the devastating impact of climate change on people and nature.”
Voivenel added: “We are very pleased with the results so far thanks to our dedicated and passionate teams. Achieving this goal is testament to our commitment to protect the environment in order to make it a better place to live for local communities and future generations.”
Forming part of its ECO Vision 2020, HMH has implemented various energy and water efficiency measures across its properties including The Ajman Palace Hotel, Coral Beach Resort Sharjah and Coral Dubai Deira Hotel. Initiatives include the upgrading of lighting systems, introducing voltage optimisation on the main electrical switchgear, carrying out regular audits on thermal insulation systems and optimisation of Building Management Systems (BMS) to ensure all equipment is running at the highest efficiencies.
