Two Seasons Hotel contributes to Emirates Environmental Group Can Collection Campaign
On February 27, 2020 Two Seasons Hotel participated in the can collection day organized by EEG. 35 kg of cans were requested for depositing, but Two Seasons Hotel delivered 117 kg. The hotel staff were volunteering in sorting garbage and protecting the environment through community involvement.
“It is a huge effort that came from the hotel staff to collect 117g of cans. We are happy to be a part of the Green Globe where it is essential to unify the efforts and reinforce the environmental sustainability practice in order to find solutions that encourage the environmental culture and to maintain a highly qualified sustainable environment that suits with the government lifestyle. The garbage of the entire hotel was sorted out in the garbage room to achieve the required quantity of cans. It is worth mentioning that Two Seasons Hotel has been a member of Emirates Environmental Group since January 2013. The process of can collection was carried to support the Emirates Environmental Group, to engage staff in CSR activity and to protect UAE environment. “, said Mr. Freddy Farid the Managing Director of Two Seasons Hotel Management Company LLC.
Since maintaining the environment is one of the essential values of EEG and due to our constant efforts to raise the awareness to our employees and our guests about sustainable environment so as to lessen the waste accumulated from the hospitality sector in the Middle East.
