“We are delighted to be finalists in the National Business Awards 2012, in the ICAEW Sustainability Award category. We believe that everyone has a duty of care for the environment and to seek ways to conserve natural resources. We are conscious of environmental issues and we believe that the pursuit of economic growth can be linked to ecological protection. Our sustainability ensures we are an attractive business to work for and builds a positive relationship in our local community in the rural Northamptonshire countryside, we send no waste to landfill.
"Far beyond the financial benefits, which are modest to a business of this size, we believe that this fully demonstrates the possibility for our industry to manage waste streams in a hugely improved and environmentally conscious manner. It demonstrates to our staff and customers that we are a partner they can be proud to work with.
Innovation for us is therefore evolution not revolution.” Michael Stott, Director of Sales and Marketing at Whittlebury Hall Conference and Training Centre, Hotel and Spa.
