We were the first hotel in the country to employ a full time Sustainability Manager. We have a Green Team, made up of a staff member from every department, who meet regularly to discuss the hotel's sustainable initiatives. The hotel supports Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Surfers Against Sewage and we are developing a charitable community fund to help realise environmental and social projects within our local community. Unwanted furniture, sheets, curtains, crockery etc. is donated to St. Petrocís homeless charity. Whenever an appliance needs replacing, a more environmentally friendly version is sought. The hotel has adopted the local Mawgan Porth beach and holds beach cleans four times a year involving staff, guests and the local community - the data collected from these beach cleans is sent to the Marine Conservation Society for their records. We are constantly improving our environmental performance, as shown by our decision to implement ISO14001, invest in a heat recapture system for our refrigerators and a renewable green energy tariff for our electricity. We are pleased to have recently been re-assessed for our ISO14001 international environmental certification and Green Tourism Business Scheme award and to have passed both at higher pass rates that the last time around! Our dedicated green notice board informs guests of our sustainable initiatives, and our eco-awards are displayed near the reception area.
