Turnberry Sustainable Resource Commitment

Energy & Water Conservation:

Gold Award Green Tourism Business Scheme 

In 2010, Starwood established a commitment to reduce energy use by 30% and water use by 20% by the year 2020.

Between 2010 – 2016, Trump Turnberry has reduced energy consumption by 22.4% and water consumption by 17.1%

Our team has achieved this by implemented the following:

Installation of high efficiency LED lighting in deluxe bedrooms and 50% of public areas

Utilising occupancy sensors to control lighting systems in the heart of house spaces and storage and equipment rooms

Replaced high consumption flush toilets & urinals, showerheads & faucets with high efficiency/low consumption models in bedrooms.

Waste Minimisation & Environmentally Responsible Purchasing:

Identified its appropriate waste streams and measures volumes of waste in each.

Eliminated the use of Styrofoam from all food and beverage operations in the hotel.

Giving preference to product suppliers who provide and take back reusable packaging and shipping pallets; and provide minimal and recyclable packaging materials.

Actively choosing supplier relationships which offer as few deliveries as possible.

All staff printers set on black and white duplex printing by default when printer functions allow it.

Turnberry favours reusable over disposable products – that is, which minimise the volume of waste collected.

Enhanced Indoor Environmental Quality:

Cleaning personnel use daylight while cleaning to the extent possible (in lieu of electric lighting).

Cleaning personnel is trained to reduce water usage by avoiding running water where possible.

Raising Awareness:

The Green Council is now in its 7th year. Run by staff, it is committed to continuing to ensuring employee  awareness, involvement and buy-in.

Turnberry ensures that its Sustainability Policy Statement is sufficiently visible to staff/associates and also to guests/customers so they are informed about the environmental issues of the business.
