The Mövenpick Hotel Casablanca is a 5 star hotel in Morocco, centrally located within the business district of Casablanca and within a short distance from the Old Medina.
Green Globe recently recertified Mövenpick Hotel Casablanca with the property receiving an outstanding compliance score of 92%.
The hotel has successfully combined their business operations with environmental friendly standards to save energy, minimize waste and protect biodiversity. Furthermore, social initiatives focus on offering economic benefits to local communities, contributing to local heritage and enhancing the career development of local people.
Sustainable practices at the property include energy and water savings as a result of the installation of LED lighting, sensors and low flow water faucets in back of house areas. In addition, native plants that require minimal watering are chosen for landscaped areas.
Both the housekeeping and stewarding departments use eco-friendly cleaning products to minimize environmental impacts. While guests are invited to participate in the linen reuse program that significantly reduces energy and water usage, and overall cleaning costs.
Over the 2017/18 period, Mövenpick Hotel Casablanca participated in social activities that benefit children such as the donation of food and retired linen to its partner SOS village. SOS Villages D’enfants is an NGO that provides humanitarian and developmental assistance to children worldwide.
The hotel also conducts internships for young people as part of its aim to provide hospitality training for local residents. To further support community development, the majority of food purchased for restaurant kitchens are locally grown products.
Mövenpick Hotel Casablanca team members regularly organise events to support those in need. Last year, management and staff members conducted a blood donation campaign in aid of the Moroccan Red Cross.
