Working towards a greener world
PREMIER SUITES PLUS Bristol Cabot Circus 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.
We are accredited by Green Tourism, a sustainability certification programme. Green Tourism promotes greener ways for businesses and organisations to operate by offering guidance on the following:
- Reducing energy use
- Efficient & eco-friendly waste disposal
- Ethical buying
- Staying local & seasonal
- Minimising food miles
- Promoting biodiversity
- Adopting a smart, sustainable outlook from top to bottom
What we are doing
Reducing our impact on the environment
We display our initiatives on our website for guests to see. We also actively promote our green journey through guest communication and on our social media channels.
Maintenance & cleaning
All lights and appliances are switched off when the apartment is vacant. We also encourage guests to think before they leave and ensure lights and heating are turned off when they are not in the apartment.
Growing Our Own
We offer “Homegrown Greens”, a planter filled with herbs and spices, like red pepper, for our guests to use and spice up their own culinary masterpieces.
We are currently in the process of enrolling with Green Tourism and all staff have been made aware of this. You can find our Green Policy on our website. Our sales Manager has also attended green & sustainability webinars hosting by the local destination office. The team regularly update their knowledge via our Eureka training website.
We offer running maps in reception. There is a bike rack available within our shared car park area. We will be introducing Electric Charging Points in the future. We also work with the local hospitals promoting their free transport for visitors and patients.
Replaced the single use toiletries with dispensers. Send invoices via email instead of printing. Offer online payment instead of inhouse payments to reduce paper use. There are food waste bins in all apartments. QR codes are used to communicate information to guests. Keys are used instead of plastic key cards.
Home away from home
Our property includes double glazed windows in all rooms and balcony doors. We have the heat in corridors turned off unless needed.
As a company we have suppliers across the board that we use; however we do recommend local eateries and businesses to our guests.
We 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.
We also locally donate any furniture and furnishings that we are not using and any property items that haven’t been claimed within a designated time frame.
Sales manager of PREMIER SUITES Bristol, Vicky Snook acts as Food Waste Hero, working with OLIO to help reduce food waste.
