UK: South Lodge, part of the Exclusive Collection, has been named Sustainable Hotel of the Year at the Hotel Cateys.
The West Sussex hotel was recognised for combining significant green initiatives with sound business sense, “setting an example on sustainability”.
As the UK’s first B Corp certified hotel group, Exclusive Collection has been driving its ‘business as a force for good’ through measurement, improvement and accountability of its actions and initiatives.
South Lodge general manager Dan Wait said on winning the award: “This win means so much to the South Lodge team and to my wider Exclusive Collection colleagues as we’ve all made a massive commitment to sustainability through our B Corp certification.
“Being sustainable is in our bones at South Lodge and our ongoing focus continues to be on challenging, changing and championing every touchpoint in the hotel to minimise our impact on the planet.”
In June this year the Exclusive Collection also announced its partnership with RAW Charging to install EV chargers at five of its venues. And next year, in March, which is known as B Corp Month, the group will be targeting event planners with its B Corp initiatives (see more below).
