Apex wins Sustainable Business Award

Apex Hotels has won the Sustainable Business Award at last week Springboard Awards in London after demonstrating “a long term, companywide commitment to sustainable practices and policies which shone above the rest.”  The hotel group was up against The Hilton, Leonardo Hotels, Sodexo and Wilson Vale who were also on the shortlist.

Apex said that the group has put in place “a comprehensive Carbon Plan designed to propel the organisation to NetZero and has committed over £1 million to reducing carbon emissions. The initiative has already yielded some impressive results including recycling 60% of all waste with zero landfill, cutting over 600,000 plastic and glass bottles from waste through a new partnership with Belu Water and changing all room amenities to refillable Antipodes crafted from reused ocean-bound materials, which are fully recyclable.”

The hotel group has also reduced waste by introducing a new Paperless Check-in and Invoicing system, as well as a new guest App to improve efficiency.

A new Building Management System (BMS) has also yielded a 15% reduction in electricity consumption at Apex Waterloo Place in Edinburgh, with plans to roll out BMS across all its London properties.
