The Greener Voyage programme is launching at Yas Plaza Hotels and Nurai Island
Aldar Properties is encouraging guests to make more sustainable choices with the introduction of the Greener Voyage Programme, which invites guests to commit to a range of measurable, sustainable behaviours and in-turn rewards their efforts to reduce their environmental impact.
The programme, which offers a 12% discount on room rates, will be launched across Aldar Properties brands at the Yas Plaza Hotels cluster on Yas Island – Crowne Plaza Yas Island, Staybridge Suites Yas Island, Radisson Hotel Yas Island, Park Inn Yas Island, Rotana Hotel Yas Island and Centro Hotel Yas Island – as well as Nurai Island.
Gguests can opt for reduced changes to bed sheets and towels, and are encouraged to further their sustainable choices by turning off room lights and electrical appliances, using designated recycling bins and minimising overall food waste.

Ahead of arrival, guests are required to sign up for the Greener Voyage Programme through CarbonSifr, the UAE-founded climate-tech company that aims to embed environmental practices within the hospitality sector. To be eligible for the discount, bookings must be made directly with participating hotels for a minimum two-night stay.
At the end of their stay, the programme will calculate the carbon emissions that each guest has saved against the measurable behaviours.
Aldar Hospitality CEO Klaus Assmann said: “We're proud to introduce a programme aimed at inspiring conscious efforts as all of us recognise the importance of sustainability. We believe that by encouraging guests to reduce their environmental impact, we can collectively make a meaningful difference. Every action, big or small, contributes to the wellbeing of our planet."
CarbonSifr co-founder and CEO Onur Elgun said: "Our collaboration with Aldar Hospitality supports our Climate Action Roadmap, a forward-thinking approach to integrate eco-innovative practices within the hospitality sector with an aim to inspire broader ecological awareness and action across the industry and beyond. This partnership builds on our commitment to embed impactful climate action throughout the region."
Tourism is estimated to contribute to 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
