Ramada Ajman awarded Green Globe Certification three years in a row

Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman was the first hotel in Ajman to receive Green Globe Certification. Earlier this month, Green Globe recertified Ramada Ajman for the third consecutive year.

Ramada Ajman was also granted Climate Neutral Business Travel Certification for 2016 and 2017 as part of its continuous commitment to sustainable tourism. The certification was issued by myclimate, a Swiss climate protection organization, in partnership with Farnek, Green Globe’s preferred Middle East partner. Ramada Ajman was awarded for its sustainable contribution to voluntary climate protection by offsetting 48.02 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. Myclimate’s carbon offset projects aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions onsite by replacing energy sources that have a negative impact on the climate with clean and renewable alternatives.

Iftikhar Hamdani, General Manager at the hotel commented, “On top of completing the prestigious Green Globe certification for three consecutive years, Ramada Ajman is proud to have gained another notable accomplishment as a climate-neutral hotel partaking in high-quality carbon offset projects. Our Green Committee will persevere with its environmental duties and continue to raise awareness about the impact of sustainability, beyond the hospitality and tourism sectors.”

Ramada Ajman’s green initiatives include the Zero Landfill Project, the establishment of an organic urban farm, implementation of a reverse osmosis water plant and the conversion of used cooking oil into biodiesel. In addition, the property’s Green Committee recently participated in a mangrove planting project in Ajman.

Mr. Iftikhar Hamdani is frequently invited to speak about topics regarding sustainability. He spoke at Taking Responsibility for Environmental Impacts at the recent Arabian Travel Market, joined a panel discussion at Expo 2020: Opportunities, Mobility and Sustainability organised by Top Hotels World Tour, and was a member of a panel organised by and at the Saudi Travel and Tourism Investment Market 2018.
