Our ambition is to lead in our region and industry in corporate responsibility by looking after the environment, caring for our employees and customers and supporting our local community. We currently have key initiatives in sustainability, health & safety, purchasing and community relations.

SUSTAINABILITY

We are committed to providing luxury whilst minimising our impact on the environment by ensuring that our day-to-day operations promote and implement responsible environmental practices and continual improvement. Initiatives include waste management by segregation for recycling, containment and collection by nominated contractors, use of recycled materials and sourcing low impact cleaning products.

In addition our building was built to enhance energy conservation and reclaims heat in rooms through our air handling unit, lighting efficiency is provided through low energy compact halogen bulbs and light timers have been installed in 80% of the hotel.

We also have a travel plan which encourages both staff and guests to use public transport, car share or walk and cycle where possible. Initiatives to support this include public transport information being available to guests, being part of the bike to work scheme, incentivising and promoting car sharing. In addition we survey guests and staff regularly and proactively offer alternative recommendations for transport to support the environment and reduce CO2.

HEALTH & SAFETY

At Aviator we are committed to caring for our customers, employees and assets by maintaining high standards of health and safety at all times. This includes overall food safety systems, hygiene and sanitation standards as well as various security and safety initiatives that implemented by the hotel team.

ACCESSIBILITY

Aviator is committed to providing an exclusive experience tailored to every customer, and endeavours to makes itself accessible to all. Built in 2008, the hotel provides full wheelchair access to the entire ground floor, and 3 lifts that enable wheelchair access to all public areas. A number of our Aviator rooms and studios have been specifically modified for disabled users and staff are fully trained in evacuation procedures.

We strive to provide a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines. If you have any difficulty in accessing www.aviatorbytag.com please don’t hesitate to contact us.

SUPPLIERS

We are committed to working with business partners who share the values of corporate responsibility and whenever possible we try to work with local and independent suppliers to reduce environmental impact and to support economic growth within our region. Key areas where local suppliers are used include food, beverage, laundry, office furniture, stationery, branding and printed materials.

COMMUNITY RELATIONS

Founded in 2010 the Community Matters Partnership is a not-for-profit social enterprise that encourages companies to work together to enhance and support their local community to bring people together in order to improve the local environment, raise aspirations and improve lives. The Community Matters Partnership builds and establishes community links through consulting with the local council, local people and local organisations to understand community needs and then deliver a range of supportive and fundraising events and activities.
