Abu Dhabi, May 28, 2018:   Every drop counted for staff at Hilton Abu Dhabi who saved 50 cubic metres (more than 250 gallons) of water as part of a month-long initiative in support of World Water Day.

From housekeepers to chefs and receptionists to managers, every Team Member played their part to help reduce water waste at the hotel between March 19 and April 20, 2018 as part of the hotel’s ‘Pledge Our Support to H20’ initiative.

Held annually on March 22, World Water Day aims to highlight the importance of conserving water and promote the sustainable use of resources. The theme for this year’s event was ‘Nature for Water’ with the goal of encouraging people to look to nature for solutions to important issues such as floods, droughts, and pollution.

At Hilton Abu Dhabi, Team Members made sure that only as much water as was necessary was used to cook, clean or maintain green spaces in their work areas while they carried out their duties. Each member of staff received training to make sure that while water was being saved, the smooth operation of the property remained unaffected. Guests were also encouraged to participate in the hotel’s water-saving activities.

Hans Schiller, Cluster General Manager, Hilton Abu Dhabi and Hilton Al Ain, said: “As outlined in Travel with Purpose, Hilton’s corporate responsibility strategy, we are committed to water stewardship across our operation and are continuously working to reduce our environmental impact. Our Team Members took their role in this important environmental project very seriously and they were very passionate about doing their bit to save water at the hotel.” 

Water meters monitored usage throughout the hotel during the month-long ‘Pledge Our Support to H20’ initiative. Staff also maintained and updated a chart to clearly highlight savings made across the property and received training on simple water-saving techniques each week to ensure they remained mindful of their responsibilities.

“The water-saving initiative was a great success as our staff were able to demonstrate that with just a few simple changes to their daily routines and by keeping a close eye out for any unnecessary usage, we can cut down water waste and make a big difference to the environment,” said Mr Schiller.

“The entire team at Hilton Abu Dhabi are more conscious of water usage following the campaign and have continued their efforts to ensure that there is no water wastage. In addition to the water meter that helps regulate usage across the hotel, we have left posters in the team’s accommodation with tips on how to save water to encourage people to make water-saving habits part of their lifestyle.”
