Ireland: The Doyle Collection, a collection of hotels across Ireland, the US and the UK has announced its commitment to renewable energy.

The company has signed two-year contract with Savills, procuring 100 per cent renewable energy for its hotels and its offices.

The collection hopes to drive energy and water efficiency up with this move, working with the team at Savills to lower expenses. The planned programme involves real time consumption monitoring and regular analysis and consultation with stakeholders.  

The Savills teams are specialists in emission reduction without raising cost. Sharyn Mcandrew, the head of Savills' energy and sustainability team, said to Hospitality Ireland: "Since we launched [Savills' energy, procurement and sustainability division] in 2016, we have saved our clients in excess of €1.2 million and helped them to better manage their energy consumption."

"Using renewable energy as an easy but impactful win, we can then work with our clients to develop their sustainability strategy with a drive towards carbon neutrality in line with, or before, the EU target of 2050."

Doyle is also hoping to reduce its plastics waste and adopt environmentally waste management and cleaning strategies.

The industry as a whole is attempting to move in a more sustainable direction. The founder of BENSLEY hotel group released a white paper attempting to tackle climate change, while famous hotels like the Marina Mandarin have redesigned themselves to be more sustainable.

With smaller scale hotel groups committing to energy efficiency and sustainability, this may speak to an improvement of sustainability across the spectrum.
