Waste Reduction and Single Use Plastics

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – we’re doing our part with even more to come! For instance, we aim to eliminate single use plastics from our business entirely by the end of next year. We’re already on our way by eliminating plastic straws, cups and lids. Our takeaway hot drinks are served in compostable paper cups and lids. With digital contracts, menus, digital check in and check out solutions to name a few, our paper consumption is now a fraction of where it used to be. We ‘ve introduced plastic-free room keys for some properties.

Water Conservation

As water becomes scarcer across the globe, Sarova Hotels is making an ongoing commitment to reduce our water consumption. We’ve implemented a number of water saving technologies in bedrooms, kitchens and restrooms across our properties. You’ll find aerated showerheads, and dual flush toilets among the many water saving technologies in every bathroom. We even endeavour to educate guests about the importance of water conservation as they enjoy their stay, and train employees on water saving activities.

Carbon Footprint

We’ve implemented a number of initiatives to limit our impact on the environment. Thousands upon thousands of lightbulbs have been changed to light-emitting diode (LED) technology, offering a fraction of the energy consumption of a typical halogen. We’ve installed key card energy savers in all our bedrooms and motion sensors in public areas, to ensure that unoccupied rooms and areas are not needlessly consuming energy. Importantly, all our development projects are designed with a focus on our environmental impact, including installation of plant and machinery (boilers, A/C plant, cold storage) with the highest standards of energy efficiency. The Bull Hotel, for example, has even installed electric car chargers, free for guests to use during their stay.

Sustainable Food Chain

Our chefs, at Sarova Hotels, design menus at our bars and restaurants to take advantage of all the seasonal and local produce available where possible. From sustainable seafood to cleaning products, suppliers are handpicked to ensure they demonstrate the highest standards
