Green Globe Partnership

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts and Green Globe announce ambitious partnership.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is to become one of the largest hotel groups to commit to Green Globe Certification for all properties worldwide. With the new partnership we underpin our ambition to set an example for the industry. The strategy is part of a company-wide programme to establish a common and global approach to environmental, employer and social sustainability.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is aiming to set a new benchmark for sustainability by committing to a certification partnership with the internationally acclaimed Green Globe. The aim is inspiring: to certify 20 per cent of operating Mövenpick hotels, resorts and cruises by the end of 2011 as well as all properties of the company over the following 24 months. In cooperation with Green Globe, clear and measurable objectives for environmental sustainability are set.

Environmental awareness is nothing new to Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. With Swiss heritage and values at its heart, the company celebrates practices that demonstrate environmental responsibility. So far, several properties of the hotel group have been awarded for their commitment to sustainability with local and global prizes.
