Eden Hotel Collection has a genuine commitment to reducing our bearing on the environment. We recognise our responsibilities by actively implementing and evaluating sound environmental practices wherever possible. We aim to create awareness and to ensure a greener environment for our teams, our guests and our local communities, for now and for the future.
Our long term objectives are to improve solutions to environmentally safe waste management, to reduce waste produced at each hotel, to reduce landfill by recycling, to reduce our carbon foot print, effectively manage our energy and water usage and endeavour to use local and sustainable suppliers wherever possible.
We currently have the following practices in place;
Employee Practices & Training
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.
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 strive to decrease the number of deliveries per week per supplier. We purchase recyclable products and equipment in our hotels wherever possible (stationery etc)
Energy & Water Management
We are introducing low energy light bulbs in all hotels wherever possible. TV’s, lights, radiators and air conditioning units are turned off in bedrooms and public areas that are not in use and all computers and office equipment are turned off at night when not in use. We have a linen re-use program in place to reduce our water and energy consumption.
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.
