The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, has implemented multiple initiatives across the property. Some of these initiatives speak to a unified drive that is guided by our Environmental Responsibility Strategy—as key projects—are positioned to increase our portfolio offering. We are presently making strides with the following key projects which lead our sustainability portfolio.
The Glass Bottle Project implements our own in-house re-bottling system, with the aim to reduce plastic wastage and save 850, 000 plastic bottles from being thrown away, annually.
Save Our Amenities is a new refillable bathroom amenity program to also reduce our carbon footprint, and to promote recyclables.
No to Styrofoam is a seasoned campaign where our hotel does not allow the material for use or onsite of the property. By eliminating Styrofoam, we further support the eco-positive movement, tremendously.
The Vertical Farm is a recent initiative that has been launched as of April 2023. It is an addition to our Food & Beverage operations that provides us with the freshest, most nutritious produce possible while reducing our carbon footprint by eliminating the need to transport produce from other locations. Moreover, our Vertical Farm does not use any pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides, making it a safe and healthy option for our guests.
The ‘Gloves Come On!’ initiative has a bold goal to save 1.4 million pairs of gloves annually—equal to 4 tons of plastic waste—with a glove that is washable over a period of months before being recycled back into the production process of where it originated.
