The Dubai Green Tourism Awards are designed to encourage and reward pioneering hotels and hotel apartments that have made significant efforts to support environmental awareness both in their own businesses and within the tourism industry.
By publicly recognising these businesses for their environmental strategies and performance, the awards help increase awareness, encourage environmental practices and introduce new sustainability initiatives. To help its members learn about how to be green, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing has aligned with partners that understand the vision of a greener Dubai. Click here to learn more.
Some best practices include:

- Working with suppliers to reduce unnecessary packaging
- Using paper on both sides to reduce paper waste
