In our commitment to the planet, Perle Hotels are taking significant steps to minimise our impact on climate change setting new targets to promote sustainability across the company.
Play your part in tackling climate change this week:
Whether it’s walking or cycling to work, using public transport on the commute, using more eco-friendly modes of transportation all helps. Cycling to work ticks lots of boxes: it saves you money, keeps you fit and gets your brain in gear for the working day. If you are thinking about cycling to work we recommend that you check out Cycling Scotland for some fantastic tips and advise on commuting.
Top Tip: Car sharing is a fantastic first step in reducing your carbon footprint.
Reducing and recycling your food waste is just one way you can help fight climate change.
Reducing the amount of food that ends up in the bin also means you can say goodbye to unnecessary packaging waste. If we all make a few small changes and start using up the food we buy, together we can make a big difference
Zero Waste Scotland champions the Love Food Hate Waste programme that helps individuals and organisations to reduce their food waste through innovative recipes, tips on portion sizes and the correct way to store food to keep it fresher for longer.
The Climate Change (Scotland) Act set out the target of reducing CO2 emissions by 80% before 2050. Take the swap to electric cars and bikes to reduce the number of petrol and diesel cars on the road. Perle hotels are proud to support this commitment with two Tesla electric station charging points at Glencoe House and a plan to extend this roll out across the group.
Reduce, reuse, recycle
We’ve all seen the headlines about the huge environmental problems caused by single-use plastics. Governments and corporations have a responsibility to take action to reduce what packaging or single-use plastic you use, recycle paper and plastics. We are taking action to reduce plastic use in our hotel by implementing a single-use plastic reduction programme throughout our operations.
Together we can tackle climate change.
