The Atlantic Hotel has been recognised for its commitment to measure and manage its sustainability performance.
The St. Brelade-based hotel and restaurant has become a member of EarthCheck, a certification, consulting and advisory group for luxury travel and tourism organisations, and has achieved Benchmarked Bronze Status.
"Although we are just starting out on our journey towards becoming a more sustainable hotel, the Benchmarked Bronze Status is a huge achievement in itself. It has taken us the best part of a year, working with local sustainability expert, Sheena Brockie, to examine, record and report on just about every process that takes place in the hotel which was not a simple task," Patrick Burke, Owner and Managing Director, said.
"The whole team at The Atlantic is on this journey with us. Every member of staff is offered sustainability training and a Green Team has been formed to meet regularly to discuss new ideas and be champions of sustainable practices within the hotel.
"We are very aware that it is Jersey's environmental and cultural assets that attract visitors to the island and these need to be protected and responsibly managed. Jersey's visitor economy and its operators are going to be key to driving change and we're committed to playing our part."
Stewart Moore, CEO and Founder of EarthCheck, added: "The Atlantic Hotel has taken a significant leadership position in sustainability. I would like to congratulate the whole team on their achievement. The hotel is a valued member of a global group of tourism operators who dare to make a difference."
