The First Collection is committed to establishing ongoing sustainability benchmarks in the hospitality industry. Each of our hotel’s implements diverse programs to enhance environmental responsibility, including energy and water conservation, reducing plastic usage, promoting recycling, and minimising food waste.
Our hotel rooms and public areas feature energy-efficient fixtures, complemented by water conservation and recycling technologies. Each of these initiatives have enhanced operational efficiency while preserving natural resources.
Our Recycling First initiative effectively employs waste management, diverting materials from landfills while segregating and recycling plastics, glass, paper, cans, cardboard, and cooking oil. As of October 2023, our efforts have redirected more than 218 tonnes of waste from landfills.
As of October 2023, in collaboration with the Veolia Facility, we’ve redirected over 147 tonnes of food waste from landfills across all The First Group hotels through our practices of recycling food into compost and segregating food waste.
