Mike Hanson said: “In the year of COP26, and on World Environment Day, our commitment to setting a Science Based Target is an important milestone. I am also delighted to announce that we have formally joined the Zero Carbon Forum, a collaborative programme across the hospitality industry, to deliver a roadmap to net-zero.  By working together as an industry our aim is to achieve net-zero faster and more effectively.” 

Passionate about building a more sustainable future, WSH achieved ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system in 2007 at the same time as Carbon Neutral Company status, the business held this certification for 10 years before committing to 100% renewable electricity in 2018 alongside Carbon Neutral Fleet and Business Travel.  Their award-winning food waste management programme ‘Food Waste Costing the Earth’ has saved over 61,000 tonnes of CO2e since 2014.
