For us this is not a new concept as we started this journey 6 years ago by seeking the best possible advice and joined the Considerate Hoteliers. Considerate Hoteliers is an association of like-minded hoteliers who encourage, assist, motivate and cajole fellow hoteliers to adopt sound and sustainable environmentally friendly and socially responsible policies and practices. They do this through a network of member hotels and by providing events, advice and information for members on environmental and sustainability issues.
Through Considerate Hoteliers we can keep up to date with new technology and best practice as well as meeting environmentally conscious suppliers. But if you have any suggestions or advice on environmental issues we would love to hear them, by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org
