Whatley Manor are committed to delivering a luxury experience for our guests, providing a healthy environment for our team and operating our business in a way that promotes efficient use of our resources. Our planet is under pressure and as a business we are committed to doing all we can to offset our use of resources and work towards reducing our environmental impact.
We have recently partnered with It must be now, a marketing alliance of inspiring and responsible properties that deliver the highest standards of hospitality in a sustainable way and provide a positive social, economic and environmental impact on their community.
It was important to us as a business to have a tool to demonstrate our commitment, to have a way of measuring and reinforcing our values and integrity. To help us engage with a generation of travellers and influencers who share these values and to have tool help us raise the bar on accountability and transparency around sustainability.
To join the program we have worked with EarthCheck Evaluate sustainability programme with Earth Rating certification.
