Apart from the several international environmental awards El Gouna has received, notably the Global Green City award and the Green Globe certificates, El Gouna is the flagship resort of the Green Star Hotel program (GSH), a national initiative developed by the GIZ, the Ministry of tourism, and Orascom Hotels Management (OHM). Being part of GSH has grueling standards, which includes recycling 85% of El Gouna’s waste and using solar water instead of diesel generated heaters, among many others. What’s more, all of the staff are trained to be able to maintain that standard and policy-don’t believe us? Go ahead and ask one of them!
All of the above, alongside the many other activities and initiatives in El Gouna, ensures that this seaside town is able to preserve some of Egypt’s most precious resources and present itself as an example to other resort areas in Egypt and the Middle East.
