THE four-star Langdale Hotel and Spa near Ambleside in the Lake District has been awarded an RCI Green Award for its outstanding eco credentials.
Following a rigorous three-part process, reviewed and scored by Peter Burns, professor of International Tourism and Development and director of the Centre for Tourism Policy Studies at the University of Brighton, the hotel was one of just three European hotels to be commended for dynamic green policies.
Langdale was praised for successfully incorporating green thinking in to the day-to-day tourism trade, inspiring forward-thinking environmental guidelines such as supporting local projects and campaigns, sourcing recyclable, fair-trade and organic supplies wherever possible, planting native trees, protecting indigenous wildlife, and training its staff in energy conservation.
Langdale was also applauded for investing in several significant energy-saving devices such as a biomass carbon neutral energy system and a revolutionary UV system for its pool disinfectant.
Nick Lancaster, director of resort operations at Langdale said: “It is excellent that we have been recognised by such an iconic brand as RCI. We have strived to develop, implement and maintain an environmentally friendly approach to every element of what we do and will continue to do so wherever possible.”
The latest additions to Langdale’s green portfolio include the installation of the National Park’s first electric car charging point and a brand new electric bike charging point at nearby Wainright’s Inn.
RCI is the worldwide leader in vacation exchange with over 4,000 affiliated resorts in approximately 100 countries.
