TIME Hotels recently announced the Middle East’s first carbon offset accommodation at two of its hotels in Dubai. The initiative is part of the company’s drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for a more sustainable future.
The two hotels initially chosen were TIME Oak Hotel & Suites and TIME Grand Plaza Hotel which together are aiming to save over 320 tonnes of carbon emissions by year end.
Each guest that checks-in at one of the participating TIME hotels is offered a chance to contribute towards climate protection. For just AED 15 per stay, the carbon emissions they generate, by consuming energy and water during their stay, can be offset. Their contribution is then transferred to the myclimate Foundation that helps companies around the world to offset their carbon emissions.
Carbon offset guest staying at TI’ME Hotels will support solar lighting initiatives in rural Ethiopia.
“We remain focused on developing sustainability into all areas of our business and this initiative highlights our commitment to that objective,” said Mohamed Awadalla, CEO, TIME Hotels.
