The illustrious R Hotels has been creating waves in the market for its outstanding approach towards environment and all credits goes to one man Iftikar Hamdani, Cluster General Manager at Ramada Ajman.
His initiatives in recycling biodegradable wastes have created a stir in the hospitality industry and have won him many accolades. Hotels produce tons of waste on a daily basis and this hotelier’s move towards zero landfill received appreciation from Dubai Municipality.
In an exclusive video interview with Travelweb, Hamdani talks about the ‘green initiative’ project and using the recycled waste on the property’s urban farm. In July 2012, Ramada Hotels and Suites Ajman installed the first biodegradable waste machine that diverts a ton of waste daily from the landfill. With an aim to reach zero level, the hotel today recycles 90 per cent of its waste.
Today over 25 properties are recycling their waste following the footsteps of Ramada Ajman hotels which took lead in the ecological waste management. Hamdani advises his fellow colleagues to start small but to effectively bring a change in managing waste. Hamdani credits his Chairman, Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuami for all the success that has been achieved so far.
He also strongly believes in keeping his staff happy by constantly engaging them in team building activities. And he proudly states that the staff turnover is barely two per cent and credits the high retention of employees to the various activities conducted in the hotel.
The R Hotels also does numerous charity activities such as providing food to the labour class lending a hand to earthquake survivors and feed malnourished children in Africa. Ramada Hotels, through its multiple initiatives, has raised large amounts of funds for charity. Please watch the video for more details on Iftikar Hamdani’s dynamism.
