OUR COMMITMENT TO ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Zulal is designed according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), an internationally recognised green building certification, LEED metrics include energy and water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, indoor air quality standards, and stewardship over the use and impact of natural resources.
OUR COMMITMENT TO WATER EFFICIENCY
By definition, wellness resorts have a high demand for freshwater resources. However, we have reduced our original consumption calculations by 30% already, with the installing water-smart irrigation technology and water-saving systems throughout.
OUR COMMITMENT TO NATURAL RESOURCE REDUCTION
Our pledge to minimise natural resources includes using of recycled materials at 20%, wood products from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) sources at 50%, and rejecting plastic in favour of biodegradable products throughout our operations.
OUR COMMITMENT TO WASTE MANAGEMENT
Our pledge to minimise waste includes recycling where possible. This means organic waste is used as animal feed and composting, and water waste is treated for plant irrigation.
OUR COMMITMENT TO A SUSTAINABLE LANDSCAPE
We have designed the resort in harmony with its natural surroundings, with extensive outdoor landscaping and dedicated wellness gardens where more than half of all plant species are local, drought-adaptive and saline-tolerant.
OUR COMMITMENT TO FLORA & FAUNA
We are welcoming you to experience the uniqueness of the Biodiversity facts of Qatar. Mangroves, Hammada desert, rocky habitats, and their significance are used in our landscape designs.
Location naming at Zulal has a botanical route highlighting the importance and co-dependence between water and plants. Hence we selected key plant names from the Qatari Flora ecosystem as identities for each area. The selections were based on the health benefits of each plant to promote the concept of wellness through nature. Offerings for the kids highlight both fauna and flora native to Qatar.
OUR COMMITMENT TO MANGROVE EDUCATION CENTRE
We honour the importance of the Qatari mangroves in this dedicated education centre which teaches guests about the biological value of the mangrove ecosystem and hands on planting to conserve them.
OUR COMMITMENT TO GUESTS TO BENEFIT FROM NATURE
We are passionate about giving our guests the chance to immerse themselves in nature as part of their wellness experience with us. We are eager to share our commitment to protecting the natural environment that gives so much to us in return.
