Environmental Sustainability

Working towards a greener world

PREMIER SUITES Birmingham 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.

Get involved

PREMIER SUITES Birmingham was looking to raise some funds for the British Red Cross appeal to help those in need in Ukraine by running an online raffle.

We also support “Beyond the Moon”, an organisation that looks after family holidays for families that have a (terminally) ill children or a child with physical disabilities. Their situation often implies that they need extra care during a vacation which often is very expensive. Beyond the moon raises funds to support those families.
