Presentation Transcript
  • Our customers are looking for accommodation that is working to improve its sustainability and reduce negative environmental impact
  • The hotel is making efforts to reduce its water and energy consumption and to minimise the production of waste
  • All departments are able to contribute to this effort
housekeeping energy reduction
Housekeeping – Energy Reduction
  • Turn off unnecessary equipment in guest rooms i.e.
    • lights
    • TVs (do not leave them on standby)
    • air conditioning / heaters
      • if these must be left on then adjust to a suitable temperature
        • 26OC when cooling,
        • 18OC when heating
  • Check for poorly fitting doors, windows, draughts etc. and report to maintenance
housekeeping water reduction
Housekeeping – Water Reduction
  • Don’t leave taps running while cleaning
  • Check for malfunctioning toilets, excessive water flow, leaking plugs
  • Report any issue to maintenance immediately for prompt repairs
  • If there is a towel / linen reuse programme in place then ensure it is followed
  • Consider implementing top to bottom method of linen change if appropriate
housekeeping waste minimisation
Housekeeping – Waste Minimisation
  • Use bins that do not require a plastic bag liner
  • If a plastic liner is used, only replace when soiled or damaged
  • Collect any recyclables from guest rooms separately to general waste
