The Bristol, part of the Doyle Collection, has been named Green Business of the Year at the Business Leader Awards 2017.
The Bristol was the only hotel entrant in the Green category and four years ago it established a ‘Green Team’ to focus on reducing its carbon footprint.
In 2014, it became the first hotel in Bristol to secure TripAdvisor GreenLeaders Bronze status after it introduced a ‘Go Green Scheme’, which encouraged staff to get on their bikes to get to work, as well as to consider the environment in other way.
The Bristol also encourages participation to educate associates and guests in sustainable business best practices and support positive action in the community wherever possible.
Mark Payne, general manager, said: “I am thrilled to accept these awards on behalf of all the staff at The Bristol, but particularly the ‘Green Team’ who have invested a great deal of time into making small but tangible gains for the property every month.
“Through their efforts, reducing energy consumption has resulted in significant savings on our energy bills. It is great to see their hard work recognised by the business world.”
