Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa has 'Green Globe' rep
Effort made to increase eco-friendliness and CSR initiatives by resort
Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa has appointed a senior member of the management team as its 'CSR & Green Globe Champion'.
Nada Ali was chosen based on her involvement in resort initiatives and was nominated by general manager, Fredrik Reinisch.
She said: "Taking on the role of CSR & Green Globe Champion for a 5-star resort hasn't come without its challenges, but I believe we can and will do better. My main aim is to create awareness of our programmes, engage with and encourage our guests and ultimately change people's perceptions."
The resort will build a committee, under Ali's leadership, which will involve different departments and address all aspects of the resort from sustainability restrictions in the kitchens to reducing water and electricity consumption around the resort .
Reinisch added: "Nada Ali was the right choice for this role, simply due to her passion for looking after the environment. Following our Green Tourism Award earlier this year, we needed to take further steps to implement best practice and green initiatives."
Earlier this year, Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa was awarded a 'Dubai Green Tourism Award' by DTCM recognising the efforts the resort has made to look after the environment. The resort also sponsored a turtle as part of the EWS-WWF's Marine Turtle Conservation Project and took part in a fish release initiative in collaboration with the Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) - Trakhees.
