Riyadh Marriott Hotel is seeking to reduce annual CO2 emissions as part of its commitment to sustainability.

Marriott International plans to reduce the environmental footprint by 30% across its portfolio by 2025.

The Marriott solar panel project launched by Riyadh Marriott Hotel is designed to supply usable solar power by means of photovoltaics (PV).

The solar PV electric system features 1,788 units, designed to convert sunlight directly into electricity.

The utilization of a solar PV system helps the hotel’s property reduce both energy costs and carbon emissions.

Riyadh Marriott Hotel plans reduce its annual CO2 emissions from 8,029,763 kg to 915,904 kg with the Marriott Solar Panel Project.

The hotel is of view that most effective way to reduce carbon emissions is to lower consumption of fossil fuels, and switch to fuels with lesser carbon content and renewable energy sources.

The hotel said: “With increasingly severe consequences predicted, climate change is creating huge risks for our properties, putting stress on the resources we need to operate as a business, and making those resources more expensive.”

Located near the city’s downtown business hub, Riyadh Marriott Hotel features modern rooms and suites with high ceilings and space to spread out.

The hotel also features Mediterranean restaurant and 39,858ft² of venue space. The Bodyline Health Club & Fitness Centre features a gym, squash and tennis courts, and an indoor pool.
