We include environmental aspects into employee training, such as how to reduce energy, water and waste. We encourage lift sharing and combined journeys wherever possible. Public areas that are not in use will have lights, radiators and all computers and office equipment turned off at night.
We invite our guests to assist us in our mission by asking them to participate in our linen reuse program in order to reduce our energy and water consumption and to turn off TV’s, lights and radiators when our bedrooms are not in use.
We are working closely with our nominated waste supplier and are currently recycling glass, paper, cardboard, plastic and food waste. We currently recycle 48% of all our waste across the group and are aiming for 60% as a long-term target. We encourage e-mails in favour of post and are gradually introducing systems based on e-format.
Wherever possible we source and promote product ranges that minimise the environmental impact during production and distribution. We purchase cleaning chemicals with a low environmental impact. We communicate our priorities to our suppliers with regards to products, packaging and deliveries. We also strive to decrease the number of deliveries per week per supplier and purchase recyclable products and equipment in our hotels wherever possible.
We support and actively contribute to the local community by working closely with local schools, charities and suppliers. We employ locally where we can to cut down our environmental footprint and we source products from local suppliers wherever possible.
