THE Marriott Hotel in Portsmouth has won the gold award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme for the second time.

The team has been working with ACM Waste Management Plc and PDM Group, providing a ‘one stop shop’ collection for all the hotel’s waste food products and now sends zero waste to landfill.

Portsmouth is the first Marriott hotel in Europe to initiate this total hotel recycling programme, including everything from guest room bins to kitchen waste.

Paul Jeffries from the GTBS, praised the hotel’s environmental work and added: ‘It demonstrates that a leading hotel chain with strong brand values and many central procurement decisions can lead the way in sustainable tourism.’
