At Moor Hall we have made a commitment to reduce our impact on the environment wherever we can and we would value your support in this, whether you are staying at the hotels or attending an event. This charter sets out a number of simple steps that you can take as hotel guests, organisers, visitors and delegates to help us make a difference.
1. Conserve energy
Help us to reduce our consumption of energy and to keep our prices low by switching off lights and closing windows if the heating or air conditioning is on.
Turn off all electrical equipment when not in use and avoid leaving computers, projectors and TVs on standby or adaptors plugged in but not connected.
Choose not to turn up the temperature, layers are much better!
2. Give the car a rest
Controversial maybe, but why not leave the car behind, even if it’s just for a day? Walk, catch the bus, take the train or cycle to us instead! Our reception team will be delighted to provide you with details of the local bus and train services.
3. Shop local
Help to support our local community by buying local products. We are fortunate to have some fantastic farm shops and craft centres on our doorstep - ask at reception for more details.
Insist on using re-useable bags; better still bring your own!
4. Reduce, re-use, recycle
Don’t print unless absolutely necessary. Photocopy and print double sided.
Recycle as much as you can; hand your unwanted paper to a member of staff or leave it next to your bin and we will happily recycle it for you.
Consider providing delegate information on memory sticks made from recycled products.
5. Be water wise
We have fitted water saving devices wherever we can, but we ask you to support our policy by:
Turning off all taps when not in use.
Re-using towels if you are staying for more than one night.
6. Respect and enjoy our natural surroundings
Help us look after our beautiful surroundings; avoid littering the countryside - use the bins!
Guard against fire; safely dispose of your flammables.
Always stick to the footpaths and cycle ways; they are there for a reason.
7. Support green businesses
Moor Hall has joined thousand of businesses in England and Wales working towards reducing their carbon footprint in conjunction with the Green Business Tourism Scheme. By using the businesses who have joined the scheme and by following our recommendations, you can help us to help save the planet! www.green-business.co.uk
