Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a raises awareness in Kuwait

Green Globe member, Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a Kuwait has demonstrated a firm commitment to sustainability for years. This upscale hotel has been engaged in numerous environmental activities, in line with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ corporate philosophy. All efforts were recently awarded re-certification.

“We are very proud to earn the renewal of our Green Globe certification,” said Mr. Maged Gubr, General Manager at the Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a Kuwait. “This achievement will encourage us to continuously improve our environmental performance, and raise awareness on sustainability issues in Kuwait. We have implemented a long-term environmental system to reduce the water and energy consumption. Basic measures, such as the installation of water-saving devices, and energy efficient lighting, are part of our best practices. We also encourage our guests to minimize their footprint, join our responsibility programs and local activities promoting awareness.”

Mövenpick’s commitment goes beyond environmental and employer sustainability, it encompasses a positive contribution to the community that is mutually beneficial and sustainable. The Mövenpick Al Bida’a initiated nationwide recycling competitions in cooperation with the Public Administration for Private Education, Environment Public Authority, and schools throughout Kuwait. These competitions aim at sensitizing the younger generation to sustainability issues, and inspire children to care for the environment in their daily life at home and at school.

Social responsibility is a very important topic at the Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a, and the property works closely with a number of local institutions, such as the Down Syndrome Association Kuwait (DSA), to improve the life for people with Down syndrome. The hotel sponsored the recent annual event of the DSA.

“It is our goal to create a better environment for today – and for future generations to come,” concludes General Manager, Mr. Maged Gubr.
