At Maldron Hotel Parnell Square, we, as a team, are committed to operating our hotel in the strictest respect of our planet.
Our Environmental Action Team, meeting every month, is leading our Green Action Plan set up to achieve ambitious but realistic objectives. Our ten Environmental Segments leaders are taking pride in their Green Duty and are working hard to settle this culture among their team.
At the Maldron Hotel Parnell Square we recognize the impact our business has on the environment and are fully committed to a more sustainable future. Building on the success of achieving a Gold Medal Award in Green Tourism, our environmental strategy is to:
- Be more energy efficient
- Source sustainable products and produce.
- Reduce waste and pollution
- Be diverse and inclusive
- Improve the environmental, social and economic quality of our community
Waste management is a hot topic for 2022 as we aim to reduce our landfill waste by 25 % through training, closely monitoring bin contents, and also by inviting our guests to follow our examples.
Electricity and gas consumption will be reduced by 5% in 2022 with our progress on creating a 100% LEDs hotel as well as tight control of heating and lighting requirements in bedrooms.
At Maldron Parnell we have implemented measures to help reduce our water wastage. We have recently introduced a contactless water fountain with the aim to encourage reusable water bottles.
As we are based in the heart of Dublin city it is extremely important to use to encourage the reduction of our carbon footprint. Did you know that Maldron Parnell has a roof garden, a pollinator garden and also a herb garden? These gardens were introduced to not only help with reducing carbon dioxide but it also helps with heat insulation and creating an ecosystem for local wildlife.
Maldron Parnell is extremely passionate about local wildlife. A number of our employees are members of wildlife, pollination and forestry programmes. We regularly adopt animals in Dublin Zoo and in spring 2022 we introduced a bee hotel to our rooftop garden.
Maldron Parnell is at the heart of our community. We make a conscious effort to help our local neighbours. From raising money for local hospitals to cleaning the streets and everything in between Maldron Parnell is dedicated to helping the area.
