The closing date for entering the Hotel Cateys Sustainable Hotel of the Year award for 2018 is 5pm next Friday, 10th August.
This award will recognise the hotel that has taken the most innovative steps to neutralise its impact on the environment in the past 12 months. The award is open to any hotel – independent or within a group, regardless of size. Entries can be for a single-unit business or for a group of units. Innovation will be manifested in such initiatives as:
implementing renewable energy sources
investing in new technology and equipment to minimise water and energy consumption
minimising the amount of waste sent to landfill through recycling initiatives
adopting the use of more biodegradable products
liaising with suppliers to reduce packaging
adopting more energy efficient building designs
promoting seasonal, locally sourced produce to reduce food miles.
This year, Considerate Hoteliers’ founder and joint managing partner, Benedetta Cassinelli, will again be on the judging panel for this award, and is delighted to participate in supporting this highly recognised industry accolade.
