We include environmental awareness into our new employee inductions, for example how to reduce energy, water and waste. This is continually emphasized throughout our employees EHC journey and championed by our hotel based Green Champions. We actively encourage lift sharing and combined journeys wherever possible.
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 TVs, and lights when their bedrooms are not in use. In our effort to reduce paper we aim to request our guests receive a paperless check in and check out process, by receiving all documentation via email prior to arrival, with all invoices sent via email upon departure.
We are working closely with our nominated waste supplier and are currently recycling glass, paper, cardboard, plastic and food waste. We currently recycle 100% of our waste with 30% directly recycled, 50% is recycled into renewable energy created from waste and 20% is processed by anaerobic digestion. 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 strive to decrease the number of deliveries per week per supplier. We purchase recyclable products and equipment in our hotels wherever possible (stationery etc).
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 reduce our environmental footprint and we source products from local suppliers wherever possible.
