Sustainability and the environment is at the heart of what we do
It might not be easy being green, but we're doing it anyway!
At Welcome Break Hotels we know how important the environment is and constantly strive to do better. We may not shout about it like other businesses do, instead we do the work!
We appreciate how fragile the environment is and consider the impact of what we do with every decision we make. Read on to find out more about some of the amazing things we do, what makes us a sustainable hotel, and what we have planned for the future.
Together we will make a future that lasts, one that we are proud of.
We've got the sticker to prove it!
We are proud to have our efforts recognised and as of the start of 2022, we are the only group of non-Wyndham managed hotels to have been awarded a Wyndham Green 1 Certification.
The Wyndham Green programme focuses on four areas: climate change, energy efficiency and renewable energy, water conservation, and waste diversion. It is a global effort to help our customers make informed decisions and know that by staying with us, they are making a better choice for the environment.
Those sound like great sustainability buzz words to us, but what does it mean? And what are we actually doing?
More than a colour
What are we actually doing?
So, what's next?
Next, we are aiming for level two, of course!
We are constantly rolling out trials across our hotels to see how our next phase of sustainability efforts will impact our guests and the day to day running of our hotels. We know we won't always get it right the first time round, but we know our guests appreciate our efforts and understand the importance of change. Here's just a taster of what we have to come:
- For suitable properties, we will soon start to install solar panels
- As our hotels are being renovated, we are installing water efficient fittings into the rooms as standard
- Better utilisation of our currently underused green spaces
- We will also be getting our very own dedicated Green team, who will lead the fight and keep us true to the cause
