Our Green Policy
Keeping the Isle Emerald
Here at the Tullamore Court Hotel, we believe that every business has an important role to play in protecting and enhancing our environment for our future generations. In order to help secure the long-term sustainability of Ireland’s crucial tourism industry, we have become a proud member of The Green Hospitality Programme.
The Green Hospitality Programme is the only Irish-developed environmental certification standard for the hospitality sector. The Green Hospitality ecolabel and award are both recognised nationally and internationally as the standard that members must reach to achieve the best environmental performance. They also allow visitors to choose ‘greener’ hospitality businesses, knowing that certain pre-defined criteria are being implemented and monitored.
Members and award winners set themselves the target to reduce their environmental footprint wherever possible. They are tasked with reducing their carbon emissions by reducing their energy consumption, preserve scarce water resources and minimise waste production. Members are also encouraged to protect and promote local biodiversity, buy locally where possible and encourage visitors to use local ‘green’ businesses and services.
Visitors also have a part to play. Everyone of our guests here at the Tullamore Court Hotel are encouraged to adopt a responsible approach to the environment without reducing the quality or enjoyment of their visit.
Every member of our team are trained and encouraged to implement and practice good stewardship within our business. Together, we publish annual plans and set targets to reduce the waste of scarce resources.
The Tullamore Court Hotel is proud to be the only hotel in Offaly to hold a silver level Green Hospitality Award – a Type 1 Ecolabel as defined by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
We also won Gold as part of the iNUA Hospitality Collection.
