Mövenpick Hotels named world’s most sustainable hotel group by Green Globe


Dec 13 2017

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has been named the world’s most sustainable hotel group for the second year running by world-renowned certification body Green Globe.

The hospitality firm has also been hailed a “global sustainability leader” in the ‘Green Globe Report 2017’, with more than 50% of its certified properties worldwide achieving the entity’s prestigious ‘Gold’ status – an accolade bestowed on hotels and resorts that have achieved Green Globe certification for five years or more.

These properties have been independently audited across 385 performance indicators and consistently met or exceeded the standards and criteria this rigorous certification process entails.

Best practice examples highlighted in the Green Globe report include: Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport in Germany for cutting energy consumption by 36% and rolling out an effective CO2 reduction programme; Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate in Dubai achieving an annual waste reduction of 60 metric tonnes; Mövenpick Resort El Quseir in Egypt developing an artificial reef to protect endangered coral reefs, which are vital to sustaining the bio-diversity; Mövenpick Resort Sharm El Sheikh‘s organic farm featuring 2,232 square metres of fruit trees, vegetables and flowers, generating fresh produce for the hotel’s kitchen and offering guests an authentic experience; and Mövenpick Resort Bangtao Beach in Phuket installing an innovative high-tech water supply machine.

All of these initiatives are part of Mövenpick’s successful CSR programme SHINE, which focuses on three pillars - Environment, Employer and Social Sustainability - with Education an important thread common to each.
