DUBAI, January 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City, part of The Rezidor Hotel Group, has further enhanced its commitment to Responsible Business, announcing its recent Green Key certification, a globally recognized eco-label.
"We are proud to be one of six hotels in the country to currently have the Green Key certification," says Francois Galoisy, General Manager at the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City.
The Green Key is a global eco-label for the leisure industry. In order to gain the Green Key certification, hotels have to fulfil a list of environmental requirements, covering a wide range of criteria; from environmental demands, to demands on policy, availability of action plans, education and communication. Obtaining the Green Key for one of their hotels in Dubai shows the sense of responsibility The Rezidor Hotel Group has for its surroundings and society.
"We strongly believe that Responsible Business is getting more and more important and therefore our team regularly comes up with new eco-friendly activities. Our latest initiative was the implementation of eco-friendly paper in the entire hotel to reduce the impact on the environment," says Galoisy.
Rezidor's company-wide Responsible Business programme which was launched in 2001 and comprises responsibility for guest and employee health and safety, respect for social and ethical issues within the company and reduced environmental impact. Rezidor was also the first hotel group to offer guests carbon offset possibilities. For its engagement the group has received several awards including the Worldwide Hospitality Award in 2004.
