We recognise all of our activities have an impact on the environment. This happens through our day-to-day operation, the development of our villages, and our influence in the wider community, guest and colleague travel and our supply chain.
Fulfilling this policy will embrace our core business value of creating an exceptional experience for our guests.
Through our Environmental Management System we commit to:
We are committed to working in ways that minimise both our carbon footprint and our use of natural resources.
We have set ourselves a 2050 target of achieving net zero for our scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions. This is in line with the legally binding commitments made by the UK government and similar commitments in the EU. In addition, we have set ourselves ambitious 2030 targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, sourcing from renewable energy, reducing water use, minimising waste and increasing the proportion of our waste that is recycled.
Colleagues are encouraged and empowered to take an active role in reducing the environmental impacts of our activities.
The quality and diversity of the natural environment on our villages is fundamental to the experience we offer our guests. We are committed to protecting biodiversity on our villages and to enhancing natural habitats.
We annually review any risks that climate change poses to our business and implement adaptation and resilience measures to ensure we are minimising any negative impacts.
We will ensure that guests enjoy their short break in the knowledge that the company is managing its business in harmony with the environment. We will continue to develop guests’ understanding of environmental issues.
