UAE hotels produce double CO2 emissions

Five-star hotels in the UAE are producing twice as much CO2 compared to similar hotels in Europe, according to an award-winning study on hotel carbon emissions. The study, undertaken by Dubai-based facilities management company Farnek Avireal, found that on average, a 5-star hotel in Dubai produces 6,500 tonnes of CO2 annually, while a similar hotel in Europe produces only 3,000 tonnes a year. Furthermore, Dubai hotels on average consume between 275 to 325kw/h of power per guest, compared to 100kw/h per guest in a similar hotel in Germany, a difference of 225%.
