Rowan Tree Hostel

Green Policy

The team at Rowan Tree is committed to a greener future. Here are some of the initiatives we are undertaking towards helping our environment:

  • All staff are trained on green issues and encouraged to contribute towards making our hostel greener. They walk, cycle or use public transport to get to work.
  • All plastic, paper, cardboard, aluminum cans and glass, batteries and gas cylinders are collected and recycled.
  • We use recycled paper for all our printing needs and recycle ink and toner cartridges.
  • We have installed motion-controlled lighting where suitable to reduce energy wastage.
  • All showers and taps are fitted with push buttons to reduce water wastage.
  • The hostel is powered by Energia who supply green electricity from a range of wind farms.
  • We are calculating our carbon emissions and will be offsetting this.
  • Solar panels are installed on the roof to reduce the amount of energy used to heat the water.
