HMH is progressing well on its ECO Vision 2020 with the aim of reducing energy and water consumption up to 20 per cent by 2020 at the various hotels managed by the group. In doing so, the pioneer among local hotel chains from the Middle East, is leading the way in sustainability programmes.
Laurent A. Voivenel, CEO of HMH – Hospitality Management Holdings, said, “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. 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”.
As part of the ECO Vision 2020, HMH has implemented a number of energy and water efficiency measures across all its hotels including The Ajman Palace Hotel, Coral Beach Resort Sharjah and Coral Dubai Deira Hotel. Some of the initiatives implemented include upgrading lighting systems, introducing voltage optimization on main electrical switchgear, carrying out regular audits on thermal insulation systems and optimization of Building Management Systems (BMS) to ensure all equipment is running at the highest efficiencies possible.
