Our Sustainability Policy
At St. Ermin’s Hotel we are dedicated to creating a sustainable future for our planet and communities. We recognise that sustainability encompasses both environmental and socio-cultural/economic aspects. Therefore, we have developed the following policy to guide our actions and ensure that we contribute positively to the well-being of our planet and society.
Energy Efficiency: We will implement energy-efficient practices throughout our hotel operations, including the use of energy-saving technologies, efficient lighting, and HVAC systems. We will monitor and optimise our energy consumption regularly and strive to reduce our carbon footprint.

Water Conservation: We will promote responsible water management by implementing water-saving measures, such as low-flow fixtures, water-efficient laundry processes, and guest education programs. We will also explore opportunities for rainwater harvesting and wastewater recycling.

Waste Management: We will minimise waste generation through recycling, composting, and waste reduction programs. We will encourage guests and employees to participate in these initiatives and provide convenient recycling and waste segregation facilities throughout our premises.

Sustainable Purchasing: We will prioritise the procurement of environmentally friendly and locally sourced products. We will work with suppliers who share our sustainability values and promote the use of eco-friendly materials, organic and fair-trade products, and packaging with reduced environmental impact.

Biodiversity Conservation: We will protect and enhance biodiversity within our property by preserving green spaces, planting native vegetation, and creating habitats for local wildlife. We will also engage guests in educational programs that raise awareness about local ecosystems and the importance of biodiversity.

Employee Well-being: We will prioritise the health, safety, and well-being of our employees. This includes providing a safe work environment, offering training and development opportunities, promoting work-life balance, and fostering a positive and inclusive workplace culture.

Community Engagement: We will actively engage with the local community and support initiatives that contribute to social and economic development. We will seek partnerships with local organizations, support local artisans and suppliers, and involve the community in our sustainability efforts through educational programs and collaborations.

Guest Experience: We will enhance the guest experience by integrating sustainability into our services and amenities. This includes offering eco-friendly toiletries, implementing energy-efficient room designs, providing information on local sustainable attractions, and encouraging guests to participate in our sustainability programs.

Cultural Heritage Preservation: We will respect and celebrate the cultural heritage of our location by promoting local traditions, arts, and cultural experiences. We will collaborate with local communities to preserve their cultural heritage and support initiatives that showcase local heritage and traditions.

Responsible Tourism: We will promote responsible tourism practices among our guests, encouraging them to respect local customs, minimise their environmental impact, and support the local economy by patronising local businesses and attractions.

We will regularly monitor our progress towards achieving the goals outlined in this policy. We will establish key performance indicators (KPIs) to track our environmental and socio-cultural/economic performance and report transparently on our achievements, challenges, and future targets.
We recognise that sustainability is an ongoing journey, and we are committed to continuously improving our practices. We will regularly review and update our policies, procedures, and initiatives to align with emerging best practices and evolving sustainability standards.

By implementing this sustainability policy, we aim to provide our guests with an exceptional experience while minimising our environmental impact and benefiting the communities in which we operate. Together with our employees, guests, suppliers, and local stakeholders, we will work towards a more sustainable and responsible future.
