“Going green environmental policy”
Global warming is already having significant and costly effects on our climate, our health, and our environment. We at The Old Waverley Hotel, part of Edinburgh Collection recognise the fact that the type of our businesses results in an overall impact on the environment. Considering this we operate to high standards of performance and advocate socially and environmentally sustainable business practices. Our core value is to bring a positive benefit to the societies in which we operate through high quality services, economic growth, environmental protection, community involvement and employment. In order to adhere to these principles, we endeavour to:
✔️ Comply with all applicable environmental laws, statutes, and regulations.
✔️ Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
✔️ Continuously improve environmental performance and reduce environmental impact of our activities.
✔️ Create environmental awareness among our employees, customers, suppliers and the community at large.
✔️ Minimise energy and water use within our buildings and processes in order to conserve supplies and minimise the consumption of natural resources.
✔️ Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
✔️ As far as it is possible, purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment.
✔️ Integrate the consideration of environmental concerns and impacts into our decision making and activities,
This policy will be implemented through the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
