The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have, and we need to defend it.
David Attenborough

At House of Fisher, we understand the importance of being a responsible business and are making a commitment to taking proactive steps to ensure we reduce our impact on the environment and our carbon footprint, whilst continuing to educate and provide information where we can.

We are pleased to announce we have started our sustainability journey and are committed to promote a greener and more sustainable way to operating and living in our serviced apartments and aparthotels.

We will continue to listen to our clients and staff, set clear goals and carry on reviewing our progress. All the information on this will be found on this page along with our news blogs.

Whilst we appreciate there is some way to go to achieve our ambitious green targets, we are taking many positive green steps and are well placed for our green journey ahead.

Step 1

House of Fisher was awarded the ECOsmart Accreditation by Greengage in January 2022. This is an industry standard for accommodation providers, who have been assessed in five key areas:

  • Energy & water conservation
  • Waste management, recycling and plastics
  • Rooms, consumables & facilities management
  • Sustainable food & beverage management
  • Corporate & social responsibility

  • Paperless Accounting software being launched
  • Staff green awareness training being rolled out
  • Planting more trees where possible
  • Improve our recycling amount vs general rubbish
  • Supporting more green charities

Step 4

We are not stopping here, the future will include –

  • Source better Eco toiletries, including refillable full sized products
  • Source better Eco welcome pack amenities
  • Remove plastic within our welcome amenities where we can
  • Improve use of local suppliers
  • Incorporate green improvements in new developments
  • Implement green improvements into new office development
  • We will constantly look to improve our behaviour and reduce our impact on the environment.

Charity work

Charities are close to our heart, and we are proud to contribute, support and give something back to our community.

We have installed ‘Ecosia’ as our search engine on all computers both at House of Fisher and our parent company TA Fisher. We search and Ecosia plants trees from all their search engine advertisement revenue.

‘Ecosia users have planted forests that mitigate climate change, save endangered animals, regenerate depleted soil and improve the livelihoods of local communities.‘

We are also actively donating apartment & office furniture and IT equipment where we can, using various local charities. Read more about our charity work here.

Showing our guests, the green way of living

It’s all about reducing our carbon footprint, so we want to encourage our guests to do the same. Our properties are in great locations with plenty of green things to do and buy, helping to reduce the environmental impact.

We will actively promote a greener way of life within our guest information and via our social media platforms, but here are some great ideas to live more responsibly in our apartments.
