The Ramada Encore London West Social Responsibility (CSR)
Organisations are required by law to have regard to the effect of their processes, products and services on the health & safety of their employees and on the environment.
It is the intention of this policy document to ensure that all managers meet their obligations, both to the employee and the wider community.
The Ramada Encore London West wants to provide the best environment for their staff and their guests. We also realise the need to protect our natural environment as day to day hotel operations can have a huge impact on the natural resources such as water, energy as well the additional resources of food stuffs, laundry services, chemicals and water management.
Our Commitment 1. Conserve the natural resources and energy within our hotels without sacrificing safety standards or jeopardising guest satisfaction 2. Ensure the on-going improvement of the environmental and social practices year on year by objective setting. 3. Strive to buy and use environmentally friendly products 4. Foster awareness in our customers and employees for the need to respect the environment 5. Identify ways to participate in the local community action to support the environment and the corporate social responsibility 6. Communicate on social and environmental best practice and monitor and report on our progress
Social & Community We are proud to be a good neighbour and active contributor in the community where we are situated. Giving back to the community is the way forward and we are encouraged to be involved in projects and to support the people who live and work in the local community.
We are encouraged to support at least one local charity with our employees being encouraged to be involved in events to raise money or support the charity in other ways through volunteering, charity walks and many other avenues.
BEYOND THE MOON is a non-profit association whose mission is to offer children, from financially deprived families, suffering from a life-threatening disease and their families, the opportunity to spend valuable quality time together and to enjoy a memorable, cost-free and carefree vacation in a child-friendly environment far away from hospitals and daily treatments. Ramada Encore London West participates and supports in conjunction with Wyndham International and Ramada Hotels & Resorts this charity.
We support 6 local schools and work with them to offer work placements for school leavers to experience hotel work. We are also actively involved in attending school events to promote the hotel as a local employer and to promote the industry.
The schools are Featherstone High School, The Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls, Northolt High School, Dormers Wells High School, Elthorne Park High School and Drayton Manor High School.
We also work closely with the local employment agencies to encourage long term unemployed back to work within the area.
Energy & Water conservation Our strategy is aimed at ensuring working practices support the conservation of energy and water against set targets to measure the efficiency of practices year on year. Activities include: ? Turning off lights when rooms are not in use ? Housekeeping flushing the toilets less through the cleaning process ? Not leaving water taps running unnecessarily ? We invite guests to not have towels changed daily saving on electricity and chemical usage ? Looking to reduce the amount of water used by ensuring that all equipment is well maintained and serviced regularly ? Using proven water saving shower heads to reduce water by 20% without affecting quality ? Replacing all guest room lights with Low Energy Light Bulb to reduce our usage of energy.
Being kind to the environment & our neighbours ? We will continue to work with Ecolab our chemical supplier to use as many phosphate-free cleaning chemicals in the hotel. ? Continue to use automatic dosing system equipment and energy monitoring on the dish-washing equipment ? Maintain hotel grounds and external areas to create a positive visual impact within the hotels’ community. ? Carry on business in a responsible manner with due regard to the hotels’ immediate environment, particularly at unsociable hours and in relation to noise, odour, lighting, litter, uncollected waste, or deliveries and collections.
Transportation To help reduce pollution, traffic congestion and parking problems: ? Encourage people to take local transport when it is available or car share. ? We have a secure bike cage in place to encourage staff cycling to work.
Waste Management & Recycling Our aim is to ensure we ’Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’ by reducing: 1. The amount of waste 2. The volume of waste 3. The number of pick ups 4. The smell of the waste 5. We currently recycle: Paper, Cardboard, Glass and Oil.
Waste sorting Ideas generated in the hotels include: ? All Christmas cards are recycled each year with the Tescos scheme. ? Recycling bins in all offices for both the collection of paper and destroying confidential material ? All used wire coat hangers are sent back to Dry Cleaners for recycling. ? A reduction in packaging by making fresh on premises. ? Hotel identifies the food items that end up as waste and reduce the levels. ? Flatten cardboard to reduce the space taken in the compactor. ? Ultimately if waste is managed the number of compactor collections can be reduced and this also reduces the number of collections ? Re-using scrap paper for internal messages, notes and printing internal communications ? Fryer oils collected regularly to recycle. ? The Toner cartridges from the printers are collected for re-cycling ? All used light bulbs recycled in specific bins. ? All newspapers are recycled each day.

From 1st July 2007, we will arrange the treatment and sound disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Where the WEEE was purchased after 13th August 2005, we are entitled to expose of the goods using producer compliance schemes, i.e. take back obligations on retailers, the ultimate cost of which is borne by manufacturers. However, for WEE which was purchased before 13th August 2005, it is the hotel which is responsible for disposing of the goods if, however, the old WEEE is being replaced by new EEE that has equivalent or similar purpose or functionality, then the producer compliance scheme is responsible for the disposal.
We will ensure that we maintain records of what EEE was purchased before 13th August 2005 and what was purchased after, principally on the basis that EEE that was purchased after the 13th August 2005 date can be the subject of us requiring the retailer to take the equipment back.
