“The earth is what we all have in common.” —Wendell Berry
At The Landmark London, we strongly believe that it is vital to foster sustainable development.
The Landmark London embraces this policy through the ‘Sustainability Taskforce’, who are formed by team members at all levels and departments and are in charge of keeping this policy alive through different initiatives and activities.
Every team member who wishes to become part of this group is welcome to do so.
The organisation is committed to acting responsibly, and to protect the environment. All employees are required to:
-Recycle materials wherever possible
-Not print off e-mails unnecessarily
-Consider the ethical stance of suppliers before placing orders
-Dispose of any chemicals responsibly and carefully
-Think about the impact of their actions on the local community
WASTE MINIMISATION & MANAGEMENT
—Waste is separated and placed in designated bins for electrical and batteries.
—General waste is collected by Veolia and taken to their Energy Recovery Facility where it is used as fuel. It generates electricity and green, low carbon heating for housing estates in Southwark.
—Food waste is collected by Veolia and processed to be applied to arable land in Hertfordshire.
EFFICIENT ENERGY USE & WATER CONSERVATION
—Bed linen is changed in the bedrooms every 2nd day.
—Our public restrooms feature tech savvy hygienic sensor taps and lighting.
—Careful management of the BMS (Building Management System) has contributed to reduce our electricity consumption by 7% and gas consumption by 4% since 2018.
—All heating and cooling pumps have also been replaced with energy efficient units.
USE OF SUSTAINABLE SOURCED MATERIALS
—We offer our guests complimentary coffee capsules made from biodegradable bioplastic and free from aluminium and oil-based plastic.
—Our water bottles are made using recycled plastic and they are 100% recyclable.
—CleanConscience collects our used soap bars to sort, clean and be re-processed and transformed into soap powder and soap noodles, which are sent to the Kori Women’s Development Project in Sierra Leone.
