How We Manage Our Waste & Water Sustainably
The Doyle Collection is proud to have a long term sustainability strategy in place across our group, which builds on our existing green achievements, such as using 100% renewable energy in our British hotels.
Our waste policy
Some of our hotels have been 100% waste diverted from landfill for over 10 years which means we recycle as much as possible, work with initiatives like Clean Conscience which donates used soap and toiletries from our rooms and we have ambitious targets across our growth to reduce our weight and increase our recycling.
We are proud to work on measures at every luxury hotel and across our group, to further reduce our food waste. Our chefs already work to reduce waste in our kitchens and across our menus and we are always looking to be inventive where we can, such as dehydrating citrus fruit for our cocktail garnishes.
We continue to work with our suppliers on increasing the number of ways we can use reusable or recyclable packaging rather than single use plastic and we are looking at ways we can dovetail our mission to reduce food waste with local charities and initiatives in our hotels’ cities.
We are working hard to reduce our water wastage through a number of initiatives both in our individual hotels and across our collection, at every level of the business.
From increasing housekeeping efficiency to using refillable glass bottles in six of our hotels and eliminating synthetic chemicals in our cleaning products to team efforts to save 1 litre of water a day through education and awareness programmes, we are proud that our hotels are well on their way to hit our water reduction goals.
Moving forward each hotel in our luxurious hotel collection has targets to reduce its energy consumption and its waste, with hotels such as The Bristol leading the way, having reduced its energy consumption by 49% per room sold over the last 10 years.
