Qhotels top hotel group in carbon reduction table

QHotels, a collection of 21 four-star hotels specialising in meetings, has become the top hotel group in a new carbon reduction league table.
The Environment Agency’s Carbon Reduction Commitment League Table (CRC) measures the performance of more than 2,000 UK organisations that fall under the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme and aims to provide a strong financial and reputational incentive for participants to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Center Parcs, Keele University and Excel London also found their way into the table.
QHotels’ Managing Director and Chair of its CSR steering group, Michael Purtill, said: “This ranking is a superb recognition of our commitment to C02 and energy management.
“As a group, we are very aware of the business benefits and opportunities associated with performance in the area, as the green credentials of venues are increasingly informing the decisions of conference, meetings and events organisers.
“Measures we have introduced to improve our carbon efficiency have included retro fitting low-energy lamps, pipe and roof insulation, air conditioning timers, PIR controlled  lighting,  water flow regulators for showers and digital gas meters that can record consumption every half hour.”
