Park Inn Muscat awarded first Green Globe certified hotel in Oman
‘We opted to undergo the Green Globe certification process as part of our ‘Responsible Business’ actions. We chose this internationally-recognized brand for its credibility and the fact that it represents the best in environmental responsibility,” said chief engineer, Sushant Pawar, who is also in charge of responsible business at the hotel.
“This year we plan to place more focus on our environmental and social responsibilities,” he added. A green building is a high-performance building that is more environmentally responsible. Green buildings use less energy, less water, and fewer resources. They also have less of an impact on the environment and are healthier places for their occupants.
The Green Globe logo is widely recognized by travelers and is associated with companies who are striving to constantly improve their environmental performance. This is through recycling, minimizing waste, saving energy, and many other ways. In addition, the companies will also have developed social programs that bring direct benefits to their local community, provide extra-curricular training or skills, or engage in similar welfare-based activities.
