Sustainability

Working towards Greener Tourism

Our Building

All lights in the Hotel have been replaced with LED.

All back-of-house areas are sensor operated.

We use a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit to increase energy efficiency.

Recycling is taken seriously: cardboard, plastic, glass, and food bins have been implemented in every department to ensure that materials are being properly recycled.

We have installed rainwater tanks on the property, the collected rainwater is used for planting and landscaping .

Our People

Working with Green Tourism, we have a committee of 12 people driving our sustainability program.

Through training and online communication platforms we are educating all of our team.

In the coming months we have a sustainability open day, with experts in this field addressing all the teams.

Operations

We are currently removing all plastic water bottles (approximately 3,000 per week) and will implement a more sustainable water offering throughout our hotel. 

Transportation

As part of our ongoing sustainability program, we will actively encourage and incentivise our team to walk to work, use public transport or car share in an effort to lower carbon emissions.

Our Suppliers

We make it a priority to use local suppliers, where possible. We ensure all our suppliers have a sustainability policy in place.

We ensure that suppliers reduce packaging on all items where possible, and we recycle delivery containers.

 

Maintenance and Cleaning

We have processes and checklists in every department to ensure all appliances that are not in use are plugged out or switched off where applicable. 

All our water features have been fitted with timers to control and reduce the levels of water being used.

 

Our Community

We love to encourage local engagement at Osprey Hotel. We have recently welcomed 7 Transition Year students from local schools on work placement. 

Charity Events

We believe we can make a difference and continue to support many worthy causes.
