Sustainability Action Plan

Hospitality Services recognizes the need to take responsibility and action with regards to being more sustainable. To this end, we have developed a Sustainability Action Plan pdf file, which takes a multi-faceted approach and incorporates the principles of sustainability in all aspects of our operation.

This action plan ensures that we act in accordance with Western's policy on the environment and sustainability. In order to continue to be proactive in this respect, we have classified our principles into three categories:

Ecology: Our commitment to the environment waste diversion and eco-friendly strategies.

Culture: Our commitment to the community, to educate and increase awareness.

Technology: Continuation and improvement of our recycling program, purchasing energy-efficient equipment and implementing new green technologies as they become available.
