Dubai Green Hotel Innovation
To support the Emirate’s green economy initiatives
With plans to host 20 million tourists by 2020 and 300 hotels in the pipeline to open before 2020, adding to approximately 700 hotels currently operating in Dubai, the environmental impact of the sector from natural resource usage is set to rise.
The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) has announced that it is launching a new initiative to reduce the hospitality industry’s carbon footprint in Dubai as the sector targets greater environmental sustainability.
Dubai Green Hotel Innovation will be held on the 28-29 November 2016 in Dubai, UAE. It is envisioned to support the Emirate’s green economy initiatives, by providing a platform for hoteliers to talk about strategies to reduce the hospitality industry’s carbon footprint and achieve greater environmental sustainability. Dubai Green Hotel Innovation will discuss the latest green initiatives across the Emirate, and the implications on the hospitality industry, as well as best practices and the latest technology for reducing operating costs and improving sustainable performance through the adoption of eco-friendly and energy efficient solutions. The two-day conference will gather industry experts to discuss the latest systems and solutions to achieve energy efficiency and meet environmental standards for new and existing buildings.
Dubai: An energy efficient city by 2020
