Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City Goes A Step Ahead In Responsible Business Drive
(13 May 2010)
Hotel switches to 100 per cent recycled paper


 

The annual environmental impact of the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City’s decision to switch to eco-friendly paper
• Hotel switches to 100% post-consumer recycled paper and reduces environmental damage
• The decision results in saving of 27,000 gallons of water and 64 mature trees
• 15,000 kilowatts of electricity saved
• 3.75 tons of waste diverted from landfills

“The Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City has implemented an eco-friendly printing paper across all divisions as part of an ongoing initiative to reduce the impact on the environment”, said Pasquale Baiguera, the hotel’s General Manager.

“We will use Ecodoc, an eco-sustainable product from the portfolio of Ecobility, a UAE-based CleanTech company. Our decision will result in an annual saving for resources of electricity and water as well, as we save 64 trees and reduce waste of landfills,” said Baiguera.

“Our Responsible Business initiative works around environment and community we operate in and this decision is one of several we have taken-up in the past,” said Baiguera.

Karim Aly, Director of Strategy & Innovation at Ecobility, said: "With the use of Ecodoc, the hotel has found a sustainable solution that will significantly shrink its ecological footprint without having to compromise on performance or quality. Equally as important, since Ecodoc is priced in line with virgin paper, the financial burden of embracing an eco-sustainable alternative is completely eliminated.

“An environment friendly printing paper will have a direct advantage of saving wood, energy, water and reduction in carbon emissions,” said Baiguera.

The decision to switch to Ecodoc will add to the overall environment conservation efforts under the umbrella of Responsible Business.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City already uses energy efficient LED lighting that has reduced the hotel’s energy consumption by more than 80 per cent.

Also, recently, the hotel team has created eco-designer lamps from recycled waste for its Tamanya Terrace and launched a drive to collect recycled batteries during the global Earth Hour campaign.
