Auris Metro Central is forging ahead with a new green agenda as it looks to align itself with the Dubai Government’s vision for a sustainable city.

TFG Asset Management and executive team at the hotel apartment in Barsha Heights (TECOM) are reviewing the property’s operations and devising green strategies designed to save energy and water costs and reduce its carbon footprint.

They have partnered with Green Key, a leading standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operations in the tourism industry, and will adhere to this prestigious eco-label’s programme.

Green Key properties commit to adopting green practices that adhere to strict criteria stipulated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). These practices cover every aspect of the hotel’s operations, from staff and management involvement in devising water, waste and energy reduction policies to guest engagement in rolling out these initiatives.

More than 25 hotels and resort are currently Green Key certified, 15 of which are in Dubai. Of those, nine properties are from the Starwood Hotels & Resorts portfolio, five are Carlson Rezidor properties and one is a Fairmont hotel.

Auris Metro Central will be the first local brand to be certified by the well-respected Green Key.

“Improving our bottom line is not the only motivation for us to go green,” stressed head of TFG Asset Management, Mariano Faz. “It is imperative the Gulf region’s hoteliers start to seriously contemplate how to reduce or eradicate the negative impact their properties have on the environment and the local community and strive to create a better, more ecological living space.”
