Mövenpick Resort El Quseir, Egypt Embraces GreenGood Composting: A Win for Tourism, Environment, and Accor


Nestled on Egypt’s sunny Red Sea coast, Mövenpick Resort El Quseir has taken a groundbreaking step towards sustainability by partnering with GreenGood Eco-Tech to implement their advanced composting systems. This case study explores the significance of this initiative for both Egypt’s tourism industry and Accor Hotels, the parent company of Mövenpick.

Challenges and Opportunities for Egypt:

Waste management: Tourism is a vital sector in Egypt’s economy, but it also generates significant waste, primarily food scraps and landscaping debris. Traditional landfill methods contribute to land scarcity, environmental pollution, and a drain on resources.

Image perception: Sustainability concerns are increasingly influencing travelers’ choices. Egypt’s tourism industry has an opportunity to differentiate itself by embracing eco-friendly practices and attracting environmentally conscious visitors.

Circular economy: Implementing resource recovery solutions like composting can promote a circular economy within the tourism sector, turning waste into valuable resources and fostering greater environmental responsibility.

Accor’s Commitment to Sustainability:

Planet 21 program: Accor, a global hospitality leader, has implemented the ambitious Planet 21 program, focusing on reducing environmental impact across its hotel operations. Composting aligns perfectly with this commitment, allowing them to minimize waste and resource consumption.

Enhanced brand reputation: By showcasing proactive sustainability measures like Mövenpick’s composting initiative, Accor can strengthen its brand image and attract environmentally conscious travelers, investors, and talent.

Leading by example: Implementing these solutions at iconic resorts like Mövenpick sets a positive precedent for the entire hospitality sector in Egypt and encourages other hotels to prioritize sustainable practices.

GreenGood’s Impact:

The installation of GreenGood’s composting systems at Mövenpick Resort El Quseir delivers tangible benefits:

Waste diversion: Over 80% of organic waste is diverted from landfills, significantly reducing environmental impact and aligning with Accor’s sustainability goals.

Resource recovery: Thousands of tons of high-quality compost are generated annually, which can be utilized for landscaping projects or donated to local farms, promoting resource circularity and minimizing dependence on external resources.

Cost savings: Reduced landfill fees and transportation costs lead to long-term financial benefits for Mövenpick, demonstrating the economic viability of sustainable solutions.

A Model for the Future:

This collaboration between Mövenpick, GreenGood, and Accor showcases the power of innovation and partnership in advancing sustainability within the tourism sector. It offers a compelling model for other Egyptian hotels and resorts to emulate, paving the way for a greener future for the industry and the country as a whole.

Beyond Mövenpick:

GreenGood invites other hotels, not just within Accor, to join them on this journey. Their composting solutions offer a scalable and effective way to reduce waste, save costs, and contribute to a more sustainable future for Egypt’s tourism sector.
