Our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

Here at BEST WESTERN PLUS Old Tollgate Hotel we are committed to the operation of our business with consideration for both the protection of and reducing our impact on the environment. We will also strive to take an active role in supporting the local community and caring for our immediate environment.
We encourage our staff and guests to be aware of Corporate Social Responsibility practices and actively participate in our efforts to be socially and environmentally responsible in everything we do.

Local community and environment policy aims and achievements
We have ensured easy access to our Hotel and provide general facilities within the Hotel for disabled guests, including a lift which can access bedrooms in the main Hotel. We also have a specially designed bedroom for mobility impaired guests.
We use local suppliers whenever possible to reduce transport mileage, co2 emissions, air miles and our Carbon footprint.
We are a Corporate member of the local Sussex Wildlife Trust.
We ensure the Hotel, grounds and gardens are kept tidy and attractive in keeping with the rest of the beautiful, award winning small village community of Bramber.
We employ a “Green” gardener and are planting with a view to encourage butterflies and other beneficial residents. We have installed bird boxes and feeders and a ladybird hotel. A further bug hotel is under construction.
We have a “Green” notice board in the Hotel and information sheets in guest bedrooms to advise our guests of our current environmental initiatives and information.

Wider environmental policy aims and initiatives
We have gained a “Gold“ award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
We have a strong and active Green Team who promote energy and wastage reduction,  recycling wherever possible and a “green” environment within the hotel and grounds, and is committed to raising awareness of the issues involved.
Our Green Team leader was short listed for a National award sponsored by the Considerate Hoteliers Association.
Our Hotel was short listed for the local Business Awards in the Green Business category.
We actively investigate ways to save electricity, gas and water and closely monitor our usage.
Haven Power were specifically chosen to supply our electricity due to their commitment and promise to minimise the impact of their activities on the environment using more sustainable methods.
We have had two electric car charging stations installed courtesy of Zero Carbon World.
Hot water and heating boilers are well maintained and controls set for optimum energy and comfort levels. Refrigerators are serviced regularly and all appliances replaced with environmentally friendly models as required and obsolete models disposed of correctly.
We have replaced boilers with more energy efficient models through the Carbon Trust.
We encourage guests to re-use their towels to save water and energy.
Individual controls in some bedrooms have energy saving switches and corridor heating is set to maximise energy usage. We switch off heating, lighting and appliances when not required and encourage guests to do so.
We currently recycle paper, cardboard, cans, glass, printer cartridges, plastics and bottles and re-use much of our office paper. We have engaged the services of a local
recycling company called Brighton Paper Round who specialise in using ethical recycling methods.  
Light bulbs throughout the Hotel have been replaced wherever possible with low energy and long life versions.
We have installed Water Hippos in cisterns to save water. Gents toilets have been installed with a water saving automatic flush system.
