There is no denying the negative impact that travel has on our environment. We’re all responsible for doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint by making sustainable travel choices and informed decisions. At PREMIER SUITES Bristol, sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Our staff and management have made a commitment to our city to lessen our impact on the environment so future travellers and generations can enjoy our beautiful home just as we do. Here are some ways we have improved our sustainability efforts in our serviced apartment accommodation in Bristol and how our guests can help.
Our Serviced Apartments in Bristol
AT PREMIER SUITES accommodation in Bristol, and in all of the PREMIER SUITES properties, sustainability is very important to us. We are committed to improving our green score by following all expert guidance and removing outdated procedures. We are continually improving our policies to reduce energy consumption and reduce waste, lessening our carbon footprint in measurable ways every week. Our team are fully trained and prioritises sustainability in all aspects of their work from building upgrades to everyday tasks. The company promotes the efficient use of energy by its staff through the use of energy surveys, improved housekeeping, control of processes and the efficient use of service engineer resources. We want to improve the sustainability rating of our property without affecting the quality of our service or our guest experience.
Being a Responsible Guest
Aside from our team, some of the biggest contributors to our sustainability improvements are our guests. There are many small changes our guests can make every day to help us reach our sustainability goals.
- Being mindful of water usage makes a big difference to the waste the hotel produces each day. Small changes like turning off the tap when brushing your teeth or hand-washing dishes helps.
- Energy consumption is quite large in hotels and other accommodation types. Guests can help by switching off and unplugging appliances when they are not in use or powering off air conditioning and heating units when they leave.
- Limiting the amount of rubbish that enters the property means there is less to throw away at the end of the day. Saying no to single-use plastics like bags and bottles is a good place to start.
- Supporting local and independent businesses in Bristol makes a difference to the UK economy overall. Buying from local producers and suppliers reduces air miles on imported items and supports our local economy.
- Making sustainable transport choices has an impact on the carbon footprint of your trip. Bristol is easy to get around so you won’t need to travel by car, if you can help it.
Getting Around Bristol
Making responsible transport options is another easy way to travel more sustainably. Luckily when you choose centrally located accommodation in Bristol, it’s easy to explore the city on foot. Our serviced apartment accommodation in Bristol is centrally located, close to many attractions. You can spend a couple of days rambling around the city, enjoying the best sights without an engine in sight. You can hire a public bike to get around if you like to exercise and our public transport system is reliable and extensive. Cabot Circus is a busy part of town that is well-connected by public transport making onward travel easy. Getting to and from the airport is easy with a dedicated bus line, the Airport Flyer.
Slow Down and Stay a While
If you’re on the road for a while, exploring different parts of the UK or here for business, staying longer is better for the environment. It can be easy to get caught up trying to cram as much as possible into a trip. Using Bristol as a base to explore is better for the environment, reducing the need for constant travel and using less energy and resources in housekeeping. You can get where you need to go quickly and easily by public transport and get to know the city a little better in the meantime. PREMIER SUITES offer long-stay discounts exclusive to guests who book directly with our team or on our website.
