Travelodge sets out sustainability vision

Tuesday, Jul 26, 2022 0

Travelodge has unveiled a new comprehensive Better Future plan outlining the group’s sustainability agenda.  

It outlines a goal of becoming a net-zero hotel operator and follows three core pillars

It aims to reduce consumption through energy efficiency projects and migrate residual supply to green sources.

New builds and refurbishments will have sustainability as a key consideration.  

To create its Better Future plan, Travelodge appointed Simply Sustainable, a global management consulting specialist in ESG.

During the last 12 months, the group also consulted a wide range of stakeholders, including landlords, investors, local authorities, developers, key suppliers and charity partners.

Travelodge also surveyed over 40,000 of its business and leisure customers and their team of over 10,000 staff.

To support the implementation of the Travelodge Better Future plan, the group has put into place a governance model with a steering committee.

Jo Boydell, Travelodge, Chief Executive said: “We have always been committed to doing business responsibly. However, we know that there is more we need to do and we believe that sustainability has a critically important role to play in shaping the future of Travelodge. “

“The plan has been designed to mark a step-change in our sustainability agenda and is fully integrated with our wider business strategy.”

 

The new Travelodge budget-luxe design, launched in April, includes a number of sustainable initiatives such as new carpets made from recycled fishing nets.

Travelodge has also appointed Disability Positive to advise on policy and training programmes to support customers living with disability.
