Sustainable Dubai hotel shares eco-friendly tips

The Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel in Dubai revealed plans to share its sustainability practices at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai in May.

A Green Tip brochure will be distributed to contacts in the travel trade and corporate businesses at the show, graphically displaying sustainability tips for hotel employees to enact in their daily working and home lives.

Scott Butcher, GM of the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel, says going green for businesses is no longer a public relations exercise but a commitment to sustainability that should be taken by both corporations and individuals.
