The Rose Hotel engaged with Fifty Shades Greener in 2021, that saw an implementation of an environmental management system at the Hotel with many different reduction initiatives including: Changing all bulbs to LED across the Hotel, installing sensor lighting, replacing seals in all windows, collaborating with a local garden centre to utilise disposed of coffee, provide training to all employees, forming a green team and actively monitoring their utilities and CO2 every month.
So far, the Hotel has achieved a reduction of energy of 16% and food waste by 26%.
In April of this year Executive Head Chef Odran Lucey, became the first person in the world to successfully complete a brand-new qualification for Environmental Sustainability Management in Hospitality.
Fifty Shades Greener (FSG) and the Confederation of Tourism & Hospitality (CTH) joined forces in late 2021 to create the first Level 4 (Level 6 in Ireland) certificate in environmental sustainability management in hospitality. This is the first qualification of its kind to be regulated as an official qualification on the Ofqual framework of education.
