Hilton Dubai hotel wins Best Sustainable Hotel of the Middle East

The most sustainable of Dubai holidays can be found at the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, as this hotel recently walked away with the title of 'Best Sustainable Hotel of the Middle East' at the third Middle East Hospitality Expansion Congress's (MEHEC) Excellence in Hospitality Awards, which took place in Abu Dhabi on November 22nd 2009.

This prize was awarded to Hilton Dubai Jumeirah in recognition of its significant achievements in energy conservation, as well as sustainability reporting through Hilton Worldwide's Hilton Environmental Analysis and Tracking System (HEAT), which enables the hotel to connect their sustainability performance to their operations' strategy.

Managing Director, Fabien Faure, declared:

"The independent panel of judges took several factors into account while finalising winners of the eleven awards featured at the 2009 Middle East Hospitality Congress,"

Holidaymakers that care for the environment can now enjoy guilt-free Dubai holidays at this hotel as it was named the Best Sustainable Hotel of the Middle East "for the several initiatives it has undertaken to conserve energy, including its Conserve to Preserve Program, which features the introduction of energy efficient lighting and the engineering department's record reduction of Hotel utilities consumption by 13% and 14.4% for electricity and water."

"Hilton Dubai Jumeirah's sustainability ethos is not only embedded in our operation practice, but is also imbibed in each and every one of our team members, hereby taking environmental consciousness from hotel to home." - said Christian Muhr, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort & Residence's General Manager,, when commenting on the recognition.

But there is still more prove that this is one of the greenest of Dubai hotels as earlier this year, the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah was also honoured by Dubai Water & Electricity Authority as part of ‘Your Decision' campaign, which was a call to action programme encouraging all sectors of Dubai, including the tourism sector, to embrace conservation policies at every level of operation for more sustainable Dubai holidays and the future of a greener emirate.

In 2008, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah's strive to reduce its carbon foot-print resulted in a 6.2% reduction in electricity usage, while a 2% decrease was recorded in water consumption in 2008, a year which was the busiest on record, since the property's opening.
Other green initiatives currently active in the hotel which further prove that the most eco-friendly of Dubai holidays are to be had here, include the World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour, Hilton Worldwide's water conservation programme and energy efficient lighting. On a last note, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah was also the first hotel in the UAE to adopt JohnsonDiversey's green cleaning innovation, the Jonmaster Ultra-Microfibre Cleaning System.

Hilton Dubai Jumeirah fully supports Hilton Worldwide's comprehensive sustainability goals, implementing business practices that are aligned with those goals.
