Sofitel The Palm Dubai has become the first hotel property on Palm Jumeirah to be awarded the international ISO 14001:2004 certification.

The award was given for its outstanding implementation of the Environmental Management System, following a detailed EMS audit conducted by “German Cert”, a global certification and training institute, accredited by DAkkS in Germany.

Sofitel The Palm Dubai is also the first hotel within the Sofitel Luxury Hotel Brand in the MENA region to be awarded the ISO 14001:2004 certification.

The resort has already achieved the distinction of being the first “Green Globe Certified Hotel” within the Accor Group and on the Palm Jumeirah.

“The resort has received many accolades during the year for its commitment towards sustainability, resulting from great team work and coordination between all departments across the entire hotel operations, where the ISO 14001 certification is not the last," said Rohit Salunke, director of engineering.
