Our Sustainability Policy
The ultimate goal of our sustainability policy is to minimize our hotel’s impact on Dublin City by reducing the unnecessary use of energy, supporting the use of alternative energy, and reducing greenhouse gases in an effort to contribute to a healthy environment.
We know we can’t change the course of global warming on our own, but we believe we can make a contribution. At Ashling Hotel we believe every little bit helps.
All lights in our hotel have been replaced with LED.
All windows are double-glazed.
We use biodegradable key cards for our guestrooms.
Heating is not in use in corridors when vacant.
Lights automatically turn off in guestrooms when the keycard is not in place. In other areas of our hotel, we use sensor lighting where possible.
Aircon is turned off in guestrooms unless guests wish to activate it.
Recycling is taken seriously: cardboard, plastic, glass and food bins have been implemented in every department to ensue that materials are being properly recycled.
We plan on reaching out to schools to encourage working in the hotel industry. We are working on introducing a “plant a tree scheme”. We offer prizes for positive initiatives within the local community.
As part of our ongoing sustainability program, we actively encourage and incentivise our team to walk to work, and use public transport, if they are in a position to do so. We provide bicycle racks at the Ashling Hotel.
We encourage guests to use the Luas Tram, as we are just a few minutes’ walk from 2 stops.
We have set up a sustainable committee within the hotel
Through continuous training and communication, we are educating all of our team.
We are currently removing all plastic water bottles and straws and will implement a more sustainable water offering throughout the hotel.
We use biodegradable cups.
We have introduced a more sustainable toiletries option in guest bathrooms.
All our key cards, pencils, paper, and gift cards have been switched for a biodegradable alternative.
Drinking glasses are provided in guestrooms.
Our team is trained in the way of energy conservation within the hotel. We have processes and checklists in every department to ensure all appliances that are not in use are plugged out or switched off where applicable.
Reusable coffee cups provided to all team members.
We have selected Java Republic as our Coffee Partner at Ashling Hotel, due to their great tasting coffee and their “Coffee with a Conscience” ethos!
We donate and contribute to many worthy causes. Most recently we have supported, Embrace the World, Autism Assisted Dogs, and Motor Neuron Disease charities.
We’re introduced Eco Boutique an eco-conscious range of shower gels, shampoos, and conditioners as our toiletries of choice. These products not only offer a lavish experience but also uphold our commitment to sustainability. By introducing Eco-Boutique we are reducing plastic and liquid waste by as much as 85%.
Ashling Hotel is powered 100% from a wind farm in Ireland.
Our electricity is carbon neutral with a goal of net-zero carbon emissions
We have implemented digital signage in our lobby area to communicate events and notices to guests.
We encourage guests to save water with in-room signage and encourage guests to avoid requesting towel changes.
To minimise the use of paper, our guest services directory is online and accessible using a QR code.
Menus are also available using QR code.
We are continuing to improve our business with positive sustainable practices. The next phase is introducing all digital screens within the property to further reduce on printing.
