DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences Celebrates World Ocean Day with Underwater and Shoreline Cleanup Campaign

 In celebration of World Ocean Day, DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences, in partnership with BEEAH, successfully conducted an underwater and shoreline clean-up campaign. The event was participated by the team members of the hotel who are dedicated to making a positive impact on our environment.


The campaign was a significant step towards raising awareness about the importance of preserving our oceans and shorelines. Participants collected waste and debris from both underwater and shoreline areas, contributing to a cleaner and healthier marine ecosystem of one of the beaches of Sharjah.


Ligia Brasoveanu, General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences, expressed her pride in the team's commitment to environmental sustainability. "We are happy to celebrate World Ocean Day with such a meaningful initiative. Our team members, in collaboration with BEEAH and the Filipino Scuba Diving Club, have shown incredible dedication to preserving our natural surroundings.” 


“It is our responsibility to protect our oceans, and today’s efforts are a testament to our ongoing commitment protecting the environment." Ligia added.


BEEAH operates in several industries that are critical to shaping an environmentally positive future and developing sustainable, smart cities. Its waste collection and city cleaning operations are the largest and most digitally-enabled in the UAE. BEEAH is also fast-growing in the region, including in KSA and Egypt, forming strategic partnerships to support sustainability targets across borders. 


“We applaud the initiative of Double Tree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences and the hands-on work done by the Filipino Scuba Diving Club. BEEAH TANDEEF is proud to support collaborative climate-positive efforts such as this one. Waste collection and transport is only a small part of the equation, but together, we have amplified preservation efforts for marine ecosystems and the environment at large,” said Rafael Lopez, CEO – Waste Collection and Processing, BEEAH TANDEEF.


DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences is committed to ongoing sustainability efforts through implementing Hilton’s Travel with Purpose environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy, which focuses on promoting responsible travel and tourism. The hotel continues to implement eco-friendly practices, from reducing single-use plastics to conserving energy and water.
