In all of our destinations we're working with hotels to reduce the effect we have on the environment. In fact, we are one of the first holiday companies to ask all our hotels to sign up to Travelife.
Travelife is a system developed by UK holiday companies, ABTA and other experts to help measure and award hotels that do their bit for the environment and local communities. Things like reducing energy and water usage, buying local produce, having a recycling policy and ensuring employees have fair working conditions.
Travelife provide help and advice as to how businesses can improve themselves. Once they've implemented some changes they can then apply for an audit where they have the opportunity to gain bronze, silver or gold sustainability awards.
We're delighted that the Sunstar Hotel in Grindelwald is the first of our hotels to achieve a Travelife Award (Silver). Our vision for the future is that all our hotels will follow their lead.
