Jurys Inn Edinburgh Scoops Prestigious ‘Green’ Award
submited Tue 02 Nov, 2010
Jurys Inn Edinburgh
has triumphed over other successful Scottish businesses and won the Green Award for Scotland in the 2010 regional heat of the British Chamber of Commerce Chamber Awards.
The highly acclaimed Green Award recognises and rewards eco friendly businesses and is awarded to the company that best demonstrates environmental and ethical best practice, and sustainable development.
As part of the hotel’s green plan the hotel takes regular meter readings and has employed a ‘reuse, reduce, and recycle’ policy. It also uses phosphate-free cleaning products with limited packaging and is continuing to upskill staff in environmental policy to help identify further ways of reducing its energy consumption and water usage.
As winners of the prestigious award, Jurys Inn Edinburgh will now automatically enter the national British Chamber of Commerce Chamber Awards, where they will battle it out for the national title in their category, as well as the chance to collect the ‘Outstanding Business Achievement’ accolade. The winner of this award wins a top reward of £25,000, with runners up gaining prizes of £15,000 and £10,000.
Barry Rowland, General Manager of Jurys Inn Edinburgh said: “We are committed to instilling a high level of environmental responsibility in our staff to help us become even more energy and waste efficient as this will ultimately benefit our local community. So we’re absolutely delighted our hard work has been recognised with the Green Award for Scotland, and we’re very excited to see how we fare against the rest of the UK.”
The hotel’s excellent green credentials were also recognised earlier this year at the Scottish Hotel Awards where Jurys Inn Edinburgh won the Scottish Eco Hotel of the Year, meanwhile Jurys Inn Hotel Group scooped the Eco Hotel Group of the Year at the awards.
The national winners of the British Chamber of Commerce Chamber Awards will be announced at a glittering award ceremony at London’s Hurlingham Club on the 25th November.For more information contact Margaret Street PR:
