Our Green CV

Being Green at Hotel Leone

Tourism is often criticised for not being very environmentally friendly, so we have created our own Curriculum Vitae so you can be sure that we are working together to do our best to do as little damage to the environment as possible. We have been awarded gold level status by Trip Advisors Green Leaders initiative - a scheme developed by sustainability experts including the United Nations Environment Program and was achieved after an independent audit by a third party.

What we have and what we do:

  • Solar panels for electricity generation
  • Solar panels for hot water generation
  • High efficiency condensing boilers

  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Hotel waste is recycled wherever possible - including food waste sent for biomass composting
  • Cooking oils and fats collected and recycled - the collection vehicles are powered by this oil
  • We avoid single use products wherever possible ( bathrooms and breakfast )
