Dubai, March 05, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Grand Millennium Dubai participated in the Can Collection Day programme organised by the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) on February 26, 2015, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) towards making a positive impact on the environment by reducing energy usage and by helping to conserve earth’s natural resources.

Mariana Paunescu, Director of Housekeeping at the Grand Millennium Dubai hotel said, “We are delighted to have supported this campaign, which promotes the importance of healthy living. I believe it will grow to become one of the must–attend campaigns for everyone who believes in their civic responsibilities.”

She thanked the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) for inviting the hotel to participate in a movement which raises awareness towards recycling. Mariana said that the group plays an important role in impacting and inspiring residents to learn, overcome obstacles and understand that positive values can be lived each day.

“The drive raises awareness about reducing landfill waste, cutting down emissions and minimising carbon footprint of the emirate. Such drives are important to form a common vision of a just, peaceful and sustainable future for all,” she said.

The hotel has been actively participating in the drive for the past two years and the staff members have been making untiring efforts in championing environmental causes through participation in various awareness drives, action campaigns and events, truly following the principles behind the initiatives.

Besides participating in the two annual events, the Can Collection Day on February 26 and the Can Collection Drive on October 10, the hotel continues collecting Aluminum cans and regularly gives it to the Emirates Environmental Group for recycling. To make the process more effective the hotel has set up an internal segregation programme, provides regular training to staff and remind them the importance of waste segregation process. The hotel also uses color code bins and clear bags for the segregation and collection of materials across the hotel.
