K West Hotel & Spa is committed to reducing the impact that its operations have on the environment at local and greater levels. Management monthly assesses the environmental impact of all historic, current and likely future operations. Management is committed to a policy of constantly improving the hotel’s environmental performance by reducing pollution, emissions and waste. We actively seek to reduce the use of all raw materials, energy and supplies and raise awareness, encourage participation and train employees in environmental matters.
We liaise with the local community and participate in discussions about environmental issues in recognition of compliance with relevant environmental legislation as a minimum level of performance. The education and training of employees in environmental issues and the environmental effects of their activities are a priority in partnership with the Carbon Trust who has trained all managers in energy management. The monitoring of progress and review of environmental performance on a regular basis occurs monthly with the meeting of the Energy Committee and the monthly Line Managers meeting. Material choices are managed with a high regard for good practice:

  • Paint used in the hotel is water based. Solvents are only used if there is no solvent free alternative. All wood is sourced from suppliers who are FSC accredited.
  • Furniture and soft furnishings are constructed from natural products where possible.
  • In addition K West expects similar environmental standards from all suppliers and contractors who will assist customers to use products and services in an environmentally-sensitive way.
  • Recycling of packaging materials and paper goods is used whenever possible with a process in place to recover all used printer paper for recycling. All new printed materials at the hotel are produced on recycled paper, card and board whenever possible.
  • To help the hotel with its initiative employees are encouraged to ensure that every effort is made to preserve our environment.

We can all do this by:

  • Ensuring that lights and other electrical equipment is switched off when not required.
  • Hot and cold taps are turned off when not in use and that taps are not left running.
  • Windows and doors are closed especially when air conditioning or heating is in use. All equipment should be used efficiently and also turned off when not in use.
  • Staff should also actively promote environmental awareness within the hotel in accordance with the laid down policies.
  • The efficient use of water and the reduction in use of chlorine based bleaches is encouraged and discussed with our suppliers. Guests are encouraged to participate in this initiative by voluntarily choosing to have their towels and bed sheets changed less often.
  • London needs to address ‘invisible’ air pollution as the biggest cause of early death after smoking. Travel smarter and help the environment in keeping green & clean.
