Saadiyat Rotana Achieves WTTC-SGS Certification

 

 

The WTTC-SGS annual audit is a significant program aimed at certifying hotels as part of the Sustainability Basics Program by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). This verification initiative was initially launched by the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) to promote sustainable practices within the hospitality industry.

Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas successfully passed the audit and received the WTTC verification. This achievement signifies our commitment to upholding the basic sustainability principles outlined by the WTTC.

In order to attain this certification, Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas had to meet all 12 criteria set forth by the WTTC. These criteria encompass various aspects of sustainability, covering efficiency, planet, and people.

Under the efficiency category, the resort demonstrated their dedication to reducing environmental impact. We implemented measures to measure and reduce energy consumption, as well as monitor and minimize water usage. Additionally, the resort actively identified and implemented waste reduction strategies. Our commitment to sustainability extended further by measuring and reducing carbon emissions.

The planet category highlights the resort's efforts to contribute to a greener environment. Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas implemented a linen reuse program, promoting the responsible use of linens to reduce waste. Furthermore, we took a significant step by eliminating single-use plastic straws and stirrers from our operations. In an effort to further combat plastic waste, the resort replaced single-use plastic water bottles and mini toiletry bottles with more sustainable alternatives. We also ensured the use of green cleaning products, minimizing the impact of harsh chemicals on the environment. Lastly, the resort recognized the importance of catering to various dietary needs and preferences by incorporating vegetarian options into our menu offerings.

The people category emphasizes the resort's commitment to community and social responsibility. Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas actively contributes to the local community, ensuring that their presence brings benefits to the area. Additionally, We strive to reduce inequalities by promoting inclusivity and fairness in their operations.

By successfully meeting all 12 criteria, Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas has demonstrated dedication to sustainability and responsible tourism. Our commitment to environmental conservation, social responsibility, and community engagement is commendable.

The WTTC-SGS audit and certification program plays a crucial role in promoting sustainable practices within the hospitality industry. Hotels that achieve this certification not only enhance their reputation but also contribute to the global efforts towards a more sustainable future.

As travelers become increasingly conscious of sustainability, the WTTC-SGS certification provides reassurance to guests that Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas meets the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility. This achievement sets an example for other hotels and encourages the adoption of sustainable practices across the industry.

In conclusion, the WTTC-SGS audit program represents a significant step towards a more sustainable hospitality industry. Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas' successful certification serves as an inspiration for other hotels to embrace sustainability and contribute to a greener and more responsible future for travel and tourism.
