UK: Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has been named world’s most sustainable hotel group by Green Globe

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has been named the world's most sustainable hotel group for the second year by certification body Green Globe.

Mövenpick was also named as a "global sustainability leader" in the 'Green Globe Report 2017,' with more than 50 per cent of its certified properties achieving  Green Globe's 'Gold' status. Gold status properties are those that have achieved Green Globe certification for five years or more.

Green Globe CEO Guido Bauer said: "This year is an important milestone on the Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts sustainability journey. More than half of all Green Globe certified hotels in the group have achieved Gold status. This is a true indication of the consistent dedication that management and staff have put in and continue to give while doing the best for the planet and their people. It shows that sustainability is now woven into the operational fabric of the hotels."

Best practice examples highlighted in the Green Globe report include Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport in Germany for cutting energy consumption by 36 per cent and rolling out an effective CO2 reduction programme and Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate in Dubai achieving an annual waste reduction of 60 metric tonnes.

Olivier Chavy, President & CEO, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts said: "I am immensely proud of what we have achieved in 2017, with our Green Globe 'Gold' status cementing our position as a hotel group raising the benchmark for sustainable hospitality practices.  That said, as a company that never rests on its laurels, we will push the boundaries next year, ensuring our new and existing properties not only uphold, but exceed the standards we have set. Adhering to Green Globe's stringent criteria not only ensures we can legitimately meet our ambitions to protect and contribute to the destinations where our hotels and resorts are located, but also assures guests they are staying with a truly 'green' hotel group."
