Taj Palace Hotel, Dubai has been awarded the prestigious EarthCheck Silver Certificate for the third consecutive year.

The recognition to Taj Palace Hotel's commitment to protect environment has come from EarthCheck, the world's leading environmental benchmarking and certification agency that provides training, capacity building, and consultancy services used by sustainable travel and tourism operators, with more than 1300 clients in over 80 countries.

Ahmed Badawy, acting general manager, Taj Palace Hotel Dubai, said that the achievement was reflective of the hotel's unwavering commitment to environment-friendly policies, in keeping with the world's highest environmental standards.

"We are truly proud of this accomplishment that reflects our dedication to green and sustainable practices designed to limit our carbon footprint,” Badawy said. “Heartiest congratulations to the entire team for another remarkable achievement.”

The Taj Palace Hotel, Dubai, was benchmarked in 2010 by EarthCheck on areas that included energy consumption, cleaning chemicals, water saving and waste recycling with a follow up assessment showing significant improvement in all areas.

With the help of an EarthCheck coordinator, who was responsible to oversee and guide all activities, the hotel reached the benchmark and won the first EarthCheck Silver Certificate after a period of 12 months.

Besides the implementation of carbon footprint and water footprint management plans, the hotel has also focused on achieving social sustainability by choosing to hire locally and by also buying locally produced products and services.
