Taking the EEG Re-use, Reduce and Recycle campaign as a blueprint, he has additonally extended the concept to cover paper, cartons, cooking oil, cans and bottles used within the Holiday Inn Dubai - Al Barsha, and daily monitors use of utilities' consumption to analyse areas of potential reduction.

"His dedicated efforts have helped in creating an environmentally friendly culture and reduced costs, without compromising on quality - and the recent participation of the hotel in the EEG Can Collection Campaign underlines this ongoing commitment," he said.
