Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi has marked several CSR successes over the past year. The property has saved 78 toner cartridges, 9,343kg of paper, 31,202kg of cardboard, 6,697kg of plastics and 82kg of cans through its recycling programme. The property has also installed 13,331 LED lights and saved 3,544,228 KWH worth of energy resulting in a reduction of 2,389.59 tonnes of CO² emissions.

Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi installed a food waste system in its Essence kitchen in 2017 to monitor and reduce food waste. In doing so, the property succeeded in keeping waste levels at 48% lower than baseline which resulted in saving 43,279 meals, or 17 tonnes of saved waste and a reduction of 74 tonnes of CO² emissions.

Staff is always encouraged to participate in various activities including the Terry Fox Run, blood donation drives and the infamous “Battle of the Bottles” where colleagues make a boat using recycled plastic and compete with other Rotana properties in Abu Dhabi. The initiative is aimed at encouraging waste segregation and reusing recyclables.
