The Ritz London has been awarded gold certification by Green Tourism for its sustainable and environmentally-friendly approach to its day-to-day operations.

Green Tourism measured ten different aspects of the hotel including waste minimisation, social responsibility, energy saving and innovation.

The hotel, which is member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, has recently undergone a kitchen renovation. It now uses induction cooking throughout, lowering the amount of energy it uses. The majority of the cooking takes place on planchas, minimising the kitchen’s use of fats, oils and traditional pots and pans, reducing the amount of water used in washing up.

The Ritz London has partnered with CleanConscience to cut-down its landfill usage. It recovers, sorts and sterilises partly-used soap and guest amenities before donating them to people with life-threatening diseases that are preventable by washing with soap.

Paul Winfield-Brown, maintenance manager at The Ritz London said: “We are delighted that our efforts to operate in a sustainable way have been recognised by Green Tourism with the Gold Award. As an iconic London landmark we recognise and are committed to contributing to promoting a greener future”.
