Raffles The Palm Dubai takes a bold step towards a sustainable future in line with the “Year of sustainability”



In line with UAE’s announcement for 2023 to be the year of sustainability, Raffles The Palm Dubai, the iconic beachfront palace, has been gearing up its sustainability efforts aimed at promoting responsible tourism practices. As part of the commitment, Raffles The Palm Dubai has implemented a range of initiatives designed to conserve energy, reduce waste, and protect the local ecosystem while offering guests a world-class experience.

In efforts to achieve this goal, the hotel has taken steps for water conservation, including efficient landscaping and recycling, while also focusing on eliminating single-use plastic from guest room amenities, room access cards and launching an in-house water bottling project.

Another key aspect of this project is to maintain sustainable food and beverage practices across the F&B outlets. Restaurant teams strive to source local, sustainable, and seasonal ingredients to support the ecosystem and homegrown businesses while reducing the carbon footprint. The hotel has also established a conscious partnership with Neutral Fuel LLC to recycle used cooking oil into biofuel.

To further incorporate sustainable practices within housekeeping and infrastructure upkeep, Raffles The Palm Dubai has invested in buying eco-certified cleaning products. The hotel also uses energy-saving control systems and lighting in guest rooms, front-of-house, and back-of-house areas.

Raffles The Palm Dubai has also committed to educating employees on social responsibility as well as giving back to the community. As a first step, all employees must undertake the annual WATCH (We Act Together for Children) Program Training, as well as volunteer to support local charities such as the Red Crescent, Latifa Hospital, Dubai Thalassemia Center, and One Billion Meals.

Raffles The Palm Dubai is proud to be the first ultra-luxury hotel in UAE to receive the ISO 14001:2015 certification for its Environmental Management System (EMS), recognizing its commitment to environmental sustainability. The ISO 14001 standard is the most widely used EMS in the world and sets out criteria for environmental management that organizations must meet to obtain certification. Synonymous with luxury and best of class hospitality, Raffles the Palm Dubai is setting new industry standards within the sustainability and conservation space.
