We care about our Environment.
Leading by example, we’ve built a green, sustainable business that limits our impact on the environment, striving to manage our hotels in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We’re working to achieve the world-leading eco aware for hotels and tourist establishments, The Green Key Award. Environmental initiatives to date have focused on ensuring food served in our hotels is locally-sourced where possible, engaging solely with suppliers who have strong CSR and Green Policies in place, ensuring our electricity is fully soured from renewable energy and putting water, energy and other resource saving processes in place to reduce consumption. We will be the first hotel group in Ireland to earn this Green Key accreditation by continuously adapting to the most sustainable practices within our business.
We care about the Social Impact on our people and our local community.
We work with our employees to train and upskill where possible, helping each team member reach their full potential in the workplace while continuously developing their skills. We empower our people to give back, offering employees volunteering days that they can take to work on behalf of a charity of their choosing. All employees are provided with free access to our gym to promote health and wellbeing and we celebrate monthly with all team members to thank them for their hard work and commitment, recognising those who deliver on company values and demonstrate care towards our guests and each other.
We also recognize the importance of giving back to our community. We’re proud of our people and the positive impact our brands have on local communities. Our team frequently take part in local initiatives and charity fundraisers, all aimed at making a positive difference for those in our community. Our Charity Partner for 2021 is the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland. Over the past three years, the team at O’Callaghan Collection has raised over €60,000 for a variety of charity partners, including the Irish Cancer Society, Pieta House and many others.
This year, we launched an initiative to recognise our Community Heroes. Every quarter, we ask our Charity Partners to nominate one of their volunteers to receive a reward of a night’s stay with the Collection to thank them for the work they do for the charity and the community. It’s our way of giving back to those who care for others.
