We realise the potential environmental impacts of our materials footprint and have deployed initiatives to measure, monitor and optimise consumption.
We work with a diverse range of suppliers to source raw materials and products to support our operations and seek to buy at competitive rates but not at the expense of labor standards or the environment. We are continuously working to improve our sustainable purchasing by buying more sustainable materials for our hotels and started integrating sustainable criteria into our purchasing procedures, mainly for signing corporate agreements.
Across hotels, we have developed a purchasing management programme, with the aim to give each department guidance on sourcing products which are more sustainable in their manufacture, use and disposal. We constantly review certain products and services and identify availability of sustainable alternatives.
