UK: Mansley Serviced Apartments says it is embracing the challenges of becoming a more sustainable and eco-friendly business.

Company owner and CEO Sir Richard Rowley describes himself as "a quiet eco-warrior" and runs the family home on renewable energy and makes use of a renewable heat source pump, solar thermal and photovoltaic panels, as well as driving an electric car.

These principles are being applied to the business and improvements are being made across all of the sites operated by Mansley Serviced Apartments. Boilers are being replaced with the most efficient versions, gas cookers are being phased out in favour of electric induction hobs and light bulbs are all LED.

Mansley Group is working with Green Tourism to achieve its gold standard which will see improvements around water usage, waste and sourcing of products, as far as possible made locally, which are sustainable.

Mansley owns two forests which "go a long way to offset the carbon dioxide" its apartments produce. These forests, one in the Cairngorms and the other in Perth & Kinross are going through a partial felling. The timber felled will go into constructing houses and so the carbon will remain captured and in the meantime they will be planting replacement trees to further reduce the company's net carbon footprint.
