Sustainability is vital to any successful business, and the hospitality industry is no exception, especially given the recent consumer awareness of eco-friendly tourism. The desire for sustainable development was strongly felt this year during “The Hotel Show”, which recently ended at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Sustainable energy solutions not only reduce operating costs, but also help deliver an unparalleled customer experience.
In the same context, Johnson Controls, the world leader in smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, urges the hospitality industry to adopt cost-effective environmental solutions, reduce environmental damage, reduce costs and gain credibility with client.
JCI now operates successfully in more than 40 sustainable industries and has been recognized as one of the top 100 sustainable companies in the world. To date, the company has succeeded in reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 70% since 2002. During the same period, it has also succeeded in eliminating more than 31 million metric tons of carbon.
JCI has always been an advocate for sustainability. Its integrated solutions help hotels monitor, analyze, control and increase operational efficiency, which not only improves guest experience, but also improves building performance, reduces workload and supports hotel growth.
One such integrated solution is OpenBlue Enterprise Manager, a dynamic new space from Johnson Controls that is a comprehensive suite of connected solutions that delivers impactful sustainability, healthy new occupant experiences, safety and security. It also offers a suite of AI-powered custom service solutions such as remote diagnostics, predictive maintenance, compliance monitoring, advanced risk assessments, and more.
Another such solution is the guest room management system (GRMS) designed to ensure an exemplary and rewarding guest experience. This is a scalable, easy-to-use, and cost-effective solution that is used to control lighting, entertainment, temperature, privacy, and security for guests to experience a safe and comfortable stay.
That’s not all, Johnson Controls’ Metasys hotel management and reservations system interface maintains comfort levels for occupants, keeps everyone safe and protects assets, while its variable speed drives at York Chillers are specifically designed for use with HVAC fan and pump applications. It offers closed-loop control capabilities with Metasys and Facility Explorer digital field controllers.
In the UAE, sustainability has always been instrumental in its diversified growth. With the UAE’s strategy to become Net Zero by 2050, it is essential that the hospitality industry adapts and integrates solutions that can help them reduce their carbon footprint. The UAE government has always provided the industry with the right support and cooperation, and if small and large market players come together to drive sustainability, the impact will be phenomenal.
