Environmental Sustainability

Working towards a greener world

PREMIER SUITES Dublin Sandyford Environmental Sustainability

We're going green to keep our planet clean

We strive to reduce pollution to its lowest practicable level and are committed to comply with all relevant legislation and associated guidance.

We monitor and manage environmental performance in our operations through environmental risk assessments. Operating procedures and controls are developed through this process to reduce any risks to the environment to the lowest level practicable. Reviews of environmental performance are built in to regular health and safety inspections and audits.

All waste represents an inefficient use of resources and energy. We try to reduce the quantity of waste generated and regularly review routes whereby waste can be eliminated or reduced or recycled.

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.

Our staff, when planning work will try to keep all potential impacts on the environment such as noise, dust, smells or fumes to a minimum.

All wastes will be disposed of responsibly. Our staff will ensure they comply with all the waste disposal requirements.

The company believes that awareness and knowledge of environmental issues is an important part of the process of effective environmental management. Therefore it is our objective to provide suitable information and training to our employees to ensure they are able to make informed decisions.

What we are doing

Reducing our impact on the environment

Guest Communication

We inform all our guests of our recycling facilities and also ask them to think of environment and switch off all the lights when its bright/leaving the apartment. We also advise guests they can drink tap water, there is no need to purchase plastic/bottled water. We are working on Green Tourism and will be sharing initiatives with our guests shortly.

Maintenance & cleaning

We are proud to use chemicals that are less hazardous to environment and recycle in all office/canteen areas.

Growing Our Own

We offer “Homegrown Greens”, a planter filled with herbs and spices, for our guests to use while cooking in their apartment.

Our People

Through the Green Tourism accreditation our team are learning more and becoming more aware of the impact small changes can make on our environment.

Transportation

We have bicycle racks available on site and offer all employees the opportunity to avail of the bike to work scheme.

Operations

We have compostable water/coffee cups at reception for guests to use. We also have  recycling bags in all apartments. We have moved to using dispensers instead of single use bathroom amenities.

We encourage as little printing as possible throughout the property with many initiatives including offering guests their invoices emailed on departure.

At PREMIER SUITES we are now accessible via “Whatsaap Business”. Our QR code is advertised around the property and provided to the guests on check in – this minimises the usage of paper/welcome letters for the guests with the arrival information provided – all “how to’s” and things to do in Dublin can be found by just scanning the QR code.

Our PREMIER SUITES Dublin Sandyford building has glazed windows to keep in heat, the lighting in public areas are on a sensor so turn off when not needed. We also have Energy LED lighting throughout the property.
