Al Bustan Centre and Residence adopts Green Globe Initiative
Al Bustan Centre and Residence, the popular hotel-apartment among tourists and businessmen in the heart of Dubai, has recently completed an energy-saving initiative for its room management system.
Called the Green Globe Initiative, the program aims to put into practice energy management system on every guest room as part of the hotel’s contribution to conservation practices for the preservation of the Earth’s natural resources. The program involves the proper use of electrical equipments to decrease carbon emission and lower energy consumption.
Such practices include the control on the usage of air condition and lighting facilities in every guest room whenever the guest is inside or outside the room. The use of this control will help reduce the energy cost to almost 10% of the total utility cost.
Another practice is the installation of a centralized instant hot water system for all the guest rooms. The hot water system, run by LPG gas is expected to save a lot of energy compare to the standard electrical heaters.
Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer, Al Bustan Centre and Residence said: “We started implementing the Green Globe Initiative as part of our contribution to energy saving practices to preserve and protect the Earth. This may be a very small act as compared to other global initiatives, but we know that it can make a significant difference when done continuously and we hope to inspire other properties and businesses as well.”
In addition to the hotel guest rooms, Al Bustan also introduced energy saving practices at the property’s shopping centre. With 78 shops covering the shopping centre, the management has decided to use LED bulbs that will result to about 7% savings on the property’s total energy consumption.
