Millennium Hotels and Resorts achieves prestigious Green Tourism accreditation across the UK
Millennium Hotels and Resorts (MHR), a leading name in global hospitality, is delighted to announce a major sustainability milestone with the Green Tourism accreditation for all of its owned and managed properties in the United Kingdom.
This certification, by the globally recognised authority in sustainable tourism, Green Tourism, marks a significant achievement in MHR’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable practices.
Of these properties, nine, including prominent names such as The Chelsea Harbour Hotel & Spa and Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington, have been bestowed with the esteemed silver accreditation.
The remaining nine properties have proudly earned the bronze accreditation.
This accomplishment is a testament to MHR’s dedication to its ground-breaking “Millennium Green Path” initiative.
This program encapsulates an array of eco-friendly practices and amenities, offering guests and stakeholders a sustainable experience that aligns with the highest industry standards for environmental stewardship.
Innovations in Sustainable Hospitality
MHR’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond accreditation.
The group’s “Millennium Green Meetings” initiative is a pioneering effort in sustainable conferencing, emphasizing the elimination of single-use plastics, paperless events, digital signage, and the use of glass or reusable, plant-based water bottles for filtered water.
This initiative also promotes carbon budgeting for events and utilizes features such as LED lighting and advanced temperature control in meeting spaces to reduce carbon footprint.
A Symbol of Excellence in Environmental Responsibility
The Green Tourism award is more than a certification; it’s a symbol of MHR’s deep-rooted commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
This includes a focus on energy efficiency, waste reduction, and comprehensive CSR initiatives that encompass staff wellbeing and community engagement.
Accolades and Future Directions
The Silver and Bronze awards received by MHR properties are not just accolades but a driving force for continued innovation in green practices and sustainable development within the hospitality industry.
