The environment and social responsibility are two key areas of fundamentalawareness for the management and staff at the Avenue.
It is the intention of the management that “the Avenue feeling” should powerfully and visibly convey the philosophy behind the Avenue Hotel that is defined as a boutique hotel. A boutique hotel provides its guests with much more than just a comfortable room. It provides them with an experience: Friendly atmosphere, staff, design, and food – all the things that make you feel comfortable, at home. In order to bring the philosophy to actions, we have recorded the following statements, which will be revised regularly in order to meet new challenges.
For us, preserving the environment has high priority, but does not necessarily mean, for example, that all products have to be organic. Before taking the decision to purchase any product intended for use in the day-to-day operation of the Avenue we take many parameters into consideration:
- Production methods, packaging and transportation
- Sorting and Recycling of waste
- Environmental friendly use of energy and water
In order to ensure that all staff are fully informed and trained to work after the Avenue philosophy and rules, they attend various courses and lectures arranged by the Avenue Academy throughout the year. This also gives them the feeling of being a member of the Avenue family.
At the Avenue we believe that social responsibility should apply both at home and away from home. It is imperative to “the Avenue feeling” that all our dealings with staff, business partners and suppliers are carried out in a socially responsible manner, in areas such as:
- Purchase of fair trade and organic goods where feasible Correct handling of all financial transactions
- The wine supplier of of the house Barrique vin, delivers CO2 neutral products
- Creating an attractive place of work that will appeal to international, young, ambitious people, who are aware of the importance of a good environment and social responsibility
- On-going training of staff in order to maintain and strengthen the philosophy behind “the Avenue feeling”
- Support a named charity organisation
- Our laundry service is certified ISO 22000, OHSAS 18001, DS 14065, DS 2451-8 and ISO 14001
