Resource Efficiency leads to reduced costs across the Energy, Water and Waste areas within a business. GHP has particular expertise in these areas and is confident that it can assist any business in reducing their costs. Tourism and Hospitality businesses can engage with GHP at any support level – be it in energy/water/waste management, site visit reviews, training, workshops/master classes, benchmarking, etc. Whatever your need – engage with us. Our GREENSave programme combines all our support offers – depending on your need. Information on all our Services can be found here – GHP GREENSave
Businesses that engage with us have saved from €5,000 to over €100,000 per annum in reduced costs – Energy, Water, Landfill & Food Waste. Your initial entry point into the GHP programme is to become a member and explore the services available. More information on our programme and membership packages can be found here – GHP Membership
GreenHospitality.ie – Certification
Certification is an optional choice for businesses. Many larger hospitality businesses – especially hotels – are finding that their customers and business clients are expecting them to have environmental programmes in place. The GreenHospitality.ie Eco-label and Awards are recognised both nationally and internationally as standards that allow members achieve good environmental performance and allow visitors to choose “Greener” hospitality businesses knowing that defined criteria are being implemented and monitored.
The key focus of the GHP certification programmes is to embed a system within the business that focuses on ongoing measurement and actions that will reduce Energy, Water & Waste costs. Members are encouraged to protect and promote local biodiversity, buy locally where possible and encourage visitors to use local “green” businesses and services. Visitors are encouraged to adopt a responsible approach to the environment without reducing the quality or enjoyment of their visit. Members employees are encouraged and trained to implement and practice good stewardship within the business and our members publish annual plans and set targets to reduce the waste of scarce resources.
