Qatar : Mövenpick Hotel West Bay awarded Green Globe certification


Located in the heart of the Qatari capital, the Mövenpick Hotel West Bay Doha has recently been awarded the Green Globe certification for its fourth consecutive year. Green Globe is a worldwide sustainability rating system for the travel and tourism industry that is based on international standards and criteria for sustainable operation and management.

According to Ms. Ghada Sadek, the General Manager at Mövenpick Hotel West Bay Doha, the hotel takes great pride for having to receive the award and is committed to maintain sustainability management policy in becoming thought-leaders for the tourism community.

Focused on green initiatives and social projects that aim to raise awareness, the hotel’s dedicated ‘Green Team’ has led several annual green activities such as Earth Hour, Beach Clean-ups, and tree planting projects. The hotel even promotes Earth Hour in the city worldwide celebration by collaborating with the Qatar Tourism Authority. Last year, the hotel was featured in a video project during which the lights were turned off.

A unique feature Mövenpick Hotel West Bay Doha has adopted is to offer a Green Meetings Package to those who are interested in making their meetings and events more eco-friendly. The amenities included in the package comprise of a healthy and sustainable lunch, a fully electronic paper-free event, and the use of hard top-tables in the meeting room where no linen will be used – all in order to reduce chemical, water and energy usage.

“The green meetings are part of Movenpick’s initiative to promote  and spread green living and business awareness. It also encourages the hotel’s employee and guests to understand more about the green initiatives and take part in green action”, explained Ms. Sadek.

As an international upscale hotel management company, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has become the most Green Globe-certified hotel in the world in terms of its commitment in supporting the sustainable environment.
