We are keen to ensure that our impact on the environment is mitigated wherever possible.
Here in our offices in Worthing, West Sussex; we practice the 3R’s.. reduce, re-use, re-cycle and ensure, wherever possible, that we don’t waste resources.
In caring for the environment, we only work with reputable printers who, in turn, deal with trustworthy mills and we’re pleased to confirm that the paper used in our brochures is from sustainably managed forests and controlled sources. We’re currently undergoing a review of the plastic envelopes used for distributing our brochures and travel documentation packs; the current envelopes are made from recycled polythene, and we are very keen to move to a more sustainable compostable or paper-based alternative as soon as possible.
It is important that our managers and staff travel overseas to gain first-hand knowledge of our resorts and hotels. To offset the carbon emissions from the flights required, we contribute annually to The Travel Foundation who carry out sustainability studies and projects to ensure natural resources and biodiversity are better protected through improved tourism practices.
Travelife is an international certification system which promotes sustainability within the tourism industry and helps tour operators and hotels to manage and monitor their social and environmental impacts. Travelife criteria cover key sustainability areas including water and energy use, rubbish disposal and recycling, the importance of supporting local culture, heritage and environment, and the protection of human rights.
Working in partnership with tour operators such as Classic Collection Holidays, the aim is to increase awareness of sustainability within hotels and amongst customers. Hotels that have been accredited with Travel certification are highlighted.
As with all businesses, we’re constantly reviewing and updating our processes, and if you’ve any comments you would like to make, or you would like to enquire about any of our working practices, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
