UK: QHotels Collection, a portfolio of hotels and resorts across the UK, has published its sustainability policy which will be rolled out nationwide.
The new framework focuses on three areas: people, places and planet.
Commitments include supporting local environmental initiatives and communities, appointing “Green Champions” in all hotels to promote best practices, establishing a sustainable procurement and purchasing policy, and more.
So far, QHotels has installed EV charging points, reduced single-use plastics, replaced lighting with low energy solutions, and has closed sections of hotels when occupancy allows to monitor and limit consumption. The group is also a member of The Green Tourism Scheme.
Phillip Gardner, commercial director at The QHotels Collection, said: “We understand the scale of our operations and the environmental impact that comes with it. We will regularly review our promises, set new targets and make fresh commitments to continually improve our impact on the environment.
“We are committed to driving positive change by engaging employees, guests, suppliers and investors in our collective mission. Together, we are cultivating a culture of environmental awareness and responsible use of our planet’s resources.”
