A key focus for the Imperial London Family of Hotels is to prepare for a greener future but to also make a difference for the here and now. As we continue to reduce our environmental impact, we look to support our guests, staff, the Bloomsbury neighbourhood and wider London community.
We are proud of our endeavours so far, such as receiving gold in the 2020 Green Apple Awards for best practice in eco-tourism.
To further reach our sustainability targets we follow the expertise of Green Key. Green Key is an international eco-label for tourism facilities. Since 1994, Green Key has been a leading standard of excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry. The Green Key programme is run internationally by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
Green Key provides a well-proven framework for an establishment to work with its environmental management on sustainability issues, including awareness raising. The high environmental standards expected of these establishments are maintained through rigorous documentation and frequent on-site audits.
For guests, a Green Key shows that the establishment is committed to reducing the environmental impact of their stay. The Green Key programme is linked to the Sustainable Development Goals 2015 - 2030 addressed by the United Nations. Green Key is also recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council for their standards which adhere to and are equivalent to the GSTC criteria.
