Centro Mada Amman’s vision, which is based on Rotana Group’s corporate sustainability platform Rotana Earth, aims to make the group a leader in its sector by applying sustainable business practices that contribute to the reduction of damage to the environment and advancing environmental and economic benefits for the local community.

To that end, Centro Mada Amman, with 194 rooms and 10 suites, has adopted several environmental policies that comply with best international practices, including a solar energy system and energy-saving light systems which power the entire hotel.

The hotel also upholds a paper and plastic recycling policy throughout its facilities and is an avid supporter of Green Wheelz, a non-profit initiative that collects solid waste items for recycling as a means of supporting the local economy, protecting the environment, and reducing the burden on landfills.

Proceeds from sales are donated to the provision of care for persons with disabilities, children affected by cerebral palsy, and early childhood education.

The hotel also offers clients e-check-in facilities, which eliminates the use of paper, and is working on becoming plastic-free in the near future.

Imad Akil, Centro Mada Amman’s general manager, said: “Our entire team works to make the hotel a model of sustainability by applying the best and most stringent environmental policies in the world and promoting green practices”.

“This is in line with our belief in the importance of our role in addressing climate change and protecting the environment by reducing energy consumption, protecting water sources, and promoting effective administration through the management of the available natural resources,” he said.

Akil pointed out that in light of the challenges facing the environment, eco-hotels have become the choice of responsible tourism.

The hotel is the ideal choice in Amman, minutes away from embassies and ministries in Abdoun and close to Amman’s main shopping malls, tourist attractions and corporate hubs, including the King Hussein Business Park.
