Sustainability

100% Renewable Energy

At Whitbread we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. From everyday efficiencies to bold new innovations we continue to invest low energy equipment in our buildings and operations to ensure we minimise our consumption.

In 2018, we announced an industry-leading commitment to cut our carbon emissions intensity by 50% by 2025 and as much as 88% by 2050.

We’ve already made great progress towards our target with solar panels on 20% of our hotels and every hotel and restaurant we own is now powered by 100% renewable energy.

This summer, we visited a windfarm to see where the renewable energy that powers our hotels, restaurants and coffee shops comes from… 

"By buying 100% renewable energy it provides a fantastic visible statement to our customers and our teams that we are committed to minimising our environmental impact" - James Pitcher, Director of Sustainability at Whitbread.
