Corporate Social responsibility at QHotels

At QHotels we take our corporate responsibility extremely seriously. We are passionate about our role in the conservation of the environment and investment in our local communities. We recognise that environmental sustainability is of the utmost importance to all of our customers, team members, local communities and investors.

Since 2008, when we formed QHotels Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Steering Group and started our journey on sustainability, it has become the cornerstone of our business and encompasses the way we do business each and every day.

Our efforts were recognised when we achieved the AA Eco Hotel Group of the year award for 2011-12. This helped cement QHotels' reputation as a company that delivers the highest conservation environment standards.

Our approach

Headed up by Michael Purtill, Managing Director of QHotels, the CSR steering group has representation from Directors of all key areas of the business - HR, Marketing, Sales, Operations, Procurement and Property - regular quarterly meetings are held to review progress and set direction.

It is the board's intention to reduce the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of the group, year on year by a combination of sensible management and sound investment in proven energy reduction projects. Since commencement of this policy in 2008, QHotels have reduced carbon emissions by approximately 4,000 tonnes of C02.

Our Suppliers

At QHotels we choose to work with like minded businesses who also strive to reduce waste and think and act 'green' as much as possible.

One supplier is Orwak, a high quality waste handling of products, made in Sweden since 1971. Orwak Environmental Services, part of the PHS Group, is the sole distributor of Orwak waste handling products in the UK.
