Hothorpe Hall's Getting Greener

29 April 2014

Hothorpe Hall is not only a superbly equipped, extremely comfortable and fantastically located Leicestershire meeting venue, with customer service that is second to none; we are also doing our bit towards saving the planet as well!

As part of the ongoing refurbishments and enhancements of our Leicestershire conference centre, every new conference or meeting room is fitted with LED lighting, which use 75% less energy and last far longer than standard bulbs. All external lighting is fitted with dusk till dawn sensors which conserves energy and eliminates unnecessary wastage. 

As a residential conference venue in Leicestershire, we have 55 well-appointed en-suite bedrooms – all have Hippo water savers installed, ensuring a saving of 3 litres of water with every flush, which means an average saving of over 2000 litres of water every 24 hours!

As a busy corporate events centre in Leicestershire, we generate a lot of waste, but we do our best to reuse as much as possible.  All recyclable materials such as glass, cardboard, plastics and paper are recycled.  Kitchen wastage such as vegetable peelings go to our composting areas, and in turn help to grow some of the delicious fresh fruit and vegetables used in our restaurant, to be enjoyed by guests who dine at our Leicestershire business meeting venue.

Future plans for an even greener Leicestershire conference centre include the possibility of installing renewable heating sources such as Biomass, solar panels and card operated light switches in the guest bedrooms of our Midlands residential conference venue.

Hothorpe Hall are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance is an integral part of our business strategy. We encourage our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.
