International Sustainability Day is a global observance that celebrates efforts to create a more sustainable and eco-friendly world. In this spirit, Sharjah National Hotels takes pride in its commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability initiatives. As a leading hotel chain in Sharjah, our properties have embarked on a journey towards eco-friendliness that aligns with our values and responsibilities towards the planet. In this blog post, we will explore the various initiatives undertaken by Sharjah National Hotels to contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.
1. Save Water
Water is a precious resource, and Sharjah National Hotels recognizes its responsibility to conserve it. We have implemented several water-saving measures across our properties, such as low-flow faucets and showerheads, dual-flush toilets, and regular maintenance to fix any leaks promptly. Additionally, we encourage our guests to join us in this endeavor by opting to reuse towels and linens during their stay.
2. Turn Off Lights When Not in Use
At Sharjah National Hotels, we understand the importance of energy conservation. To reduce our carbon footprint, we have introduced energy-efficient lighting systems throughout our hotels. Moreover, our staff is trained to turn off lights and other electronic devices when they are not in use, helping to reduce unnecessary energy consumption.
3. Burn Calories, Not Electricity
Physical fitness is essential for both our guests and the environment. To promote a healthy lifestyle while reducing electricity usage, we have established well-equipped fitness centers at our properties. Guests are encouraged to use these facilities to stay fit and active, thus reducing their reliance on electronic entertainment options.
4. Help Us Conserve Water: Hang Towels If You Wish to Reuse Them
To further promote water conservation, we encourage guests to hang their towels if they wish to reuse them. This simple yet effective initiative reduces the frequency of laundry and, consequently, water usage. By making this small choice, our guests actively participate in our sustainability efforts.
5. Local, Organic, and Farm-to-Table Ingredients
At Sharjah National Hotels, we prioritize sourcing local, organic, and farm-to-table ingredients for our culinary offerings. This not only supports local farmers and reduces the carbon footprint associated with long-distance food transportation but also ensures that our guests enjoy fresh and healthy meals during their stay.
6. Customized Green Events and Sustainable Conference Options
For corporate events and conferences, we offer customized green event planning services. From eco-friendly meeting spaces to sustainable catering options, Sharjah National Hotels is dedicated to helping our guests host environmentally responsible gatherings. We believe that even large-scale events can have a minimal impact on the planet.
7. No Smoking
In line with our commitment to a healthy environment, all our properties are designated as non-smoking areas. This decision not only promotes cleaner air and better health but also reduces the risk of fire hazards, contributing to the overall safety and well-being of our guests and staff.
On International Sustainability Day, Sharjah National Hotels reaffirms its dedication to environmental responsibility and sustainable practices. Through initiatives that conserve water, save energy, promote healthy lifestyles, and support local communities, we strive to be a shining example of eco-friendliness in the hospitality industry. We invite our guests and partners to join us on this journey towards a greener and more sustainable future for all. Together, we can make a significant difference in preserving our planet for generations to come.
