The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) has launched the second cycle of Dubai Green Tourism Awards.
Launched in 2009, the first round of the Dubai Green Tourism Award attracted 79 hotels and 450 general managers of different hotel establishments participated in four workshops and seminars.
As part of its initiatives to turn the highly successful tourism industry green and sustainable, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), Dubai’s tourism marketing and licensing body, today launches the second cycle of Dubai Green Tourism Award that is expected to increase the number of participants.
The environmental programme which aims to reduce hotel carbon emissions by 20% has already enrolled a number of prominent five-star properties in Dubai, while the award participation has been extended to include two-star hotels and standard hotel apartments this year — to expand the green initiative.
