The certificate of appreciation was awarded to recognise the significant contribution the hotel made in 2008 to the reduction of electricity and water consumption; an area which the property earmarks as a highly important issue.
General Manager of Coral Deira Dubai, Pieter Stapel, said: “We’re extremely pleased to have our dedication in this area recognised as it is something we have worked hard for.
“Water and energy conservation is a big issue and one that we recognise we can do something about if we adopt new practices and change certain ways in which we work,” he explained.
“We offer the same great level of service to our guests that they have come to expect, but we are pushing to do things in a green and environmentally friendly way – with awards like this it shows we are moving in the right direction but there is always more that can be done.”
The award was presented to 10 Dubai hotels at a special award ceremony at the InterContinental Festival City.
