Our Green Policy
Here at Hubert House we are committed not only to providing a high quality range of services but also and equally importantly to minimise the environmental impact of all our business activities.
Our efforts to be awarded by the Green Tourism Business Scheme acknowledges our continued efforts. The scheme provides accreditation and encouragement for tourism businesses to reduce the impact of their activities and seek benefit from their natural environment. The ultimate goal being to encourage sustainable practises to a level that guarantees the quality of the unique and vivid environment around us for future generations to enjoy.
Some of the major steps we have taken to reduce our impact have been:
We will ensure the responsible use of energy throughout the business including energy conservation (turning off unused appliances) and energy efficiency (use of low voltage and energy efficient electricals, such as motion sensitive lighting and timed switches).
We source local and seasonal produce to minimise carbon emissions from transportation and promote local fare.
We seek to source and use fair trade and organic products whenever possible.
We promote and encourage good environmental practises not just within our business but also outwardly with the suppliers we use.
We use eco-friendly chemicals for all our cleaning needs wherever appropriate.
We have for several years sponsored a child through “Plan international” foundation, and also have numerous other charitable interests.
We train all staff members in our practise and code so that they too understand and realise the reasons and goal so that they will endeavour to ensure our standards are kept.
This policy will be adopted and reviewed by ourselves. It will be available to staff and public and reviewed and revised periodically.
