Green Business Tourism Gables Guest House Lincoln

Awaiting accreditation - Green Tourism

Green Business Tourism Scheme

Here at Gables Guest House we are committed to being more environmentally friendly and aware of all things harming our planet. Many aspects of Green Tourism are vital to how we live our everyday lives.

Working towards a Green Tourism Business Award has proved a little bit of a challenge in how best to tackle the issues we face, so in 2011 we embarked on a series of works in order to try and meet these challenges head on.

At the Gables in order to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize our impact on the environment we encourage our guests to adopt the same policies as we ourselves use. This does not mean we compromise on the comfort or the 4 star with Gold Award quality of our accommodation.

We encourage our guests to car share when travelling into Lincoln whenever possible, or to consider local bicycle hire for short or longer day trips out.

We also advise on local bus routes into Lincoln in order to "leave the car parked where it is for the day"

A car journey not taken is vital for cleaner air for all.

 

At the Gables we continually look for ways and ideas to improve and modify our actions,so ensuring minimum impact upon our environment.
Here are some actions we take to help reduce our carbon footprint

We have installed a solar pv array of 5.39kw to generate our own electricity (weather and sunshine permitting).

Carbon avoided going into the atmosphere since commissioning of system in August 2011= 12448lb (as at 3rd March 2014).

 

We have installed solar thermal water heating (40 tubes) which heats our 300 litre water tank up to 60 degrees Celsius

We have a rain water harvesting system in place which can collect 2400 litres of rainwater at any one time for running the washing machine (Triple filters in place)

Volume of rainwater collected and re used since

comissioning of system in May 2012  =64235 litres
