Our approach to corporate responsibility
Supporting our local community
At Brend Hotels we want to play our full part in supporting good causes in our local community in Devon and Cornwall, as well as providing help to national charities. As a family business, we are pleased to have built close working relationships with the local communities where we work and our teams get personally involved in the charitable organisations that we help. We have supported hospices across the South West as well as Macmillan Nurses and many local sporting teams, including local rugby, football, swimming, bowls and tennis clubs amongst others. We are also thrilled to sponsor the South West Coast Path Association, helping to preserve this great asset to the region. There is hardly a day that goes by when we do not help support a local charity in some way or other.
Supporting the environment
We believe it is important that all our hotels do all that they can to follow good environmental practices. We are privileged to be based in a beautiful part of the world and we want to do everything possible to help preserve the natural environment. That’s why we have embarked on a substantial investment programme to replace old infrastructure with new high-efficiency equipment using renewable technologies wherever we can. We also strive to make sure that our team keep the environment in mind as they go about providing an exceptional experience to our guests.
Working with people
Each of our hotels has a dedicated team of staff who work together to ensure our working practices are as efficient as possible and that we maximise opportunities to reduce our energy use and to consume less raw materials.
Helping our guests remember the environment
Each hotel has an environmental policy which we communicate to our guests, showing them many simple ways in which they can help us to save energy and water.
