We believe that one of the greatest assets of the hotel is its location; the hotel stands overlooking Constantine Bay and Trevose Head. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), in the County of Cornwall, which is rich in natural beauty and high biodiversity.
We see our role as custodians of this wonderful natural asset and we are committed to long-term sustainability. We believe it is imperative that we take all reasonable measures to preserve and maintain the immediate and wider environment for the prosperity and enjoyment of future generations and to ensure the continuing success and viability of the hotel. The continued commercial success of the hotel, we believe, in turn will further ensure the long-term preservation and sustainability of Treglos Hotel and it's surrounding environment.
We believe that our key impacts on the environment are energy use, emissions to water, waste management and emissions to air. In order to achieve our overall aims stated above and to continuously strive to minimise all negative impacts of our operations on our environment, we will.
Fully comply with and keep up to date with all legislative and regulatory obligations and duties of care covering our operations present and future, requiring our employees and contractors to act in accordance with our environmental policy, for which we will provide adequate training and communication. We will provide this information to our guests and seek their help in implementing it.
Ensure that all capital investment projects, ongoing maintenance and renewal programs are managed in a way which incorporates assessment of every possible environmental impact and we will take appropriate action to keep adverse impacts to an absolute minimum. Future capital expenditure will provide for the replacement of current equipment as and when required with more energy efficient alternatives, including heating and hot water boilers, roof insulation, lighting, refrigeration, and catering equipment.
Water Conservation and Pollution Control
Take all reasonable measures to save water and take action to reuse water wherever possible. Introduce pollution control measures to ensure that any run off water is controlled and filtered to more than meet legal requirements. We will test the water quality and maintain records.
Flora and Fauna
Actively manage the grounds to restore them to their correct Cornish origins, only planting species of local provenance that belong there and removing their non-native invasive species. Chemical based products, including fertilizers, will be phased out and replaced with organic alternatives, wherever possible, with the aim of moving towards being 100% organic in the future.
Transport and Local Purchasing
Take all reasonable steps to minimise and where possible offset emissions and encourage our staff, suppliers and guests to help us in this initiative. Guests will be encouraged to enjoy the many activities available in and around the hotel all accessible without getting into their cars. We will continue to focus on purchasing from local suppliers and producers wherever possible.
Waste Management and Recycling
Reduce waste from our activities wherever possible, and where we produce waste we will maximise the amount that is either reused or recycled. All green waste will be retained and reused onsite.
Act in a socially responsible manner in the conduct of our business and take a position of leadership in the local community in a range of activities, including environmental best practise, supporting local charities and support groups, providing opportunity to school and college students to carry out work placements and getting involved in local community projects and initiatives.
Who and How
Our environmental commitment will be achieved through raising awareness and incorporating those issues into the daily operation of our business. We will review our performance regularly and not less than annually in order to promote and facilitate continual improvements.
