At The Hari, the team believe sustainability and luxury come hand in hand. They are committed to achieving environmental and social sustainability within the hotel and are working towards giving guests an energy-conscious and environmentally-friendly stay, without compromising quality. By 2030 they aim to be 70% free of single-use plastic, offset all their scope one and two carbon emissions, and reduce overall CO2 footprint by at least 20% to name a few.
The Hari also recognise the importance of broadening environmental awareness not just within the hotel, but in their local community, which is why their ‘Make a Change’ committee are regularly finding new ways to broaden our CSR activities. Being a member of the NOW Force for Good Alliance helps make The Hari’s sustainability efforts more rigorous, efficient, and transparent, which is highlighted via our Silver Accreditation by EarthCheck, the world’s leading environmental certification and benchmarking program for the travel and tourism industry.
Over the past couple of years, The Hari’s Sustainability Executive, Angela Montebello, has focused on enhancing their green initiatives within the hotel. From purchasing organic, high-end products that they know their clients love, such as The Organic Pharmacy and Ada Cosmetics, to stocking guilt-free treats in their guestrooms, from Seed & Bean, Two Farmers, and Gusto Organic (voted the no.1 ethical soft drinks brand in the UK). The Hari also wholeheartedly supports local charities as part of their commitment to social responsibility. They regularly work with The Children’s Trust, by dressing up as the children’s favourite characters and visiting the hospital, donating clothes, books, and toys. The Hari also work closely with the Born Free Foundation, contributing financially by purchasing several wildlife adoption packs for their young guests and educating them on the importance of wildlife conservation.
