Safir International Hotel Management supports the environment with the launch of ‘Go Green Meeting’ Program
First in Kuwait to launch this innovative meeting package
· Package encourages maximum ravage recreation and ecological awareness
· KD 1 from every ‘Go Green’ meeting will be contributed to Green Globe
Kuwait, 1 November, 2010: Eager to support the growing numbers of businesses wishing to incorporate “green” principles into their corporate meetings, Kuwaiti owned Safir International Hotel Management (SIHM) has launched a progressive new initiative known as ‘Go Green Meeting’ package that encourages maximum waste diversion and environmental awareness for meeting delegates.
Leading Middle East Hotel Management Company Safir International has been committed to nature and now for the first time in Kuwait implements a ‘Go Green’ meeting initiative aimed to reduce carbon footprint. The essence of this package is to minimize waste generated from meetings by recycling, reducing energy consumption and usage of only organic produce.
Mr. Helmut Meckelburg, CEO, Safir International Hotel Management, said, “Responsibility towards the environment is an integral part of our business; we are committed to sustainability and eco-friendly practices and this program is a natural extension of that commitment”.
He further added “Sustainability is what reflects and proves the significance of our environmentally friendly targets. We believe in giving back to the community, and for every ‘Go Green Meeting’ booked, KD 1 will be donated to the Green Globe efforts of a reputed NGO. The new meeting packages introduce eco-friendly practices into every aspect of meetings and align the hotel with the social responsibility practices.”
As part of the eco-friendly theme of the meetings, the ‘Go Green Meeting’ package consists of day light meeting rooms, organic welcome coffee breaks, organic Bento box lunch with different menu selections, recycled writing material and mini anti-stress shoulder massage by Spa therapists during the coffee breaks.
The ambience of the meeting room will be tranquil and serene with soothing background music and fragrant floral scents. During the meeting therapists from the health club will give a 10-minute exercise class to relieve fatigue and revive concentration. The package can also be tailored to the specific needs of clients. ‘Go Green Meeting’ package starts at KD 20 + 10% service charge per person.
