Amwaj Rotana JBR attains ISO certification
DUBAI, February 12, 2017
Amwaj Rotana, located along the iconic Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) stretch of Dubai, has once again attained the ISO 14001 certification, passing more than 65 external audits to complete this integral part of its corporate social responsibility plan.
Currently, the hotel is also in its transitional phase and is working on also achieving the OHSAS 18001 certification in the second quarter this year.
The hotel embarked on the certification in order to reduce the impact of its operation on the environment. Primarily, the key benefits it was hoping to gain by embarking on the initiative was to reassure guests and partners that they are dealing with a company which is environmentally sensitive and also to actively manage environmental hazards for its team of employees and the community around.
Commenting on the achievement, Mark Deere, general manager of Amwaj Rotana, said: “The ISO 14001 certification offers a very clear set of guidelines within which the hotel should operate and we are proud to have managed to maintain these standards year on year.” He went on to further comment that the hotel needs to meet various requirements of different stakeholders, namely regulatory authorities, guests and owners and the ISO certification is so comprehensive that it is recognised by all groups of stakeholders.
By developing best practices in almost every aspect of running its business, the hotel was able to build compliance towards the programme and subsequently attain the certification. - TradeArabia News Service
