Improving our energy efficiency and reducing our carbon footprint

We are committed to achieving the highest standards in energy efficiency

Our targets are set in the following areas:

  • Minimising energy consumption and costs
  • Minimising water consumptions and costs
  • Reducing our CO2 emissions
  • Giving high priority to energy efficient investments
  • Reducing significantly the environmental impacts arising from energy and water use

Our target over 5 years is to reduce our energy, water and carbon emissions by 2% every year and our fossil fuel consumption by 1% every year through group and local initiatives such as the installation of LED lamps.

Following trials, a number of projects are planned for rollout in selected hotels across the group:

  • Voltage optimisation which has provided a saving of 10% of annual kWh and projected CO2 savings of 75 tonnes per hotel
  • Boiler optimisation with projected annual saving of 35 tonnes of CO2 per hotel
  • Installation of vacuum flow showerheads which reduce the volume of water without affecting the quality of the shower experience. Results show approximate savings of 5% of water consumption and 6.5 tonnes of carbon per hotel per year
  • Pool covers which significantly reduce energy running costs
