The Kingsley goes greener

Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 4:01pm

Time to bee a little more green! At least that's the view the Kingsley is taking. The hotel has pledged to take action to reduce its environmental impact as well as raising awareness about issues through the implementation of a new sustainability policy.

With one third of Irish bee species being threatened with extinction, The Kingsley has committed to the All-Ireland Pollinator plan that is dedicated to creating a space where pollinators can survive and thrive. Two beehives housing over 80,000 bees have been installed on the rooftop and are looked after by the Maintenance Manager, Mauro Dias and Executive Head Chef, Tim Daly.

The Kingsley has also committed to a number of green initiatives across the hotel with a particular focus on waste reduction to lower its carbon footprint. In addition to the minimal use of paper and recyclable materials throughout the hotel, including in-room amenities with zero-waste packaging, the hotel is part of a continuous tree-planting programme and has introduced e-charging stations for both its staff and guests, as well as a bike to work scheme for staff to reduce congestion and promote greener travel in the area.

Not only that but all light fixtures throughout the hotel are fitted with LED light bulbs with an energy-efficient heating plan in operation. A sustainable water management plan has also been introduced, with the installation of flow reducers on all taps, low flow shower heads and toilet tank fill dividers adding to The Kingsley’s greener footprint.

The 4-star hotel is based on the Carrigrohane Road.
