For events in Galway, we’ve made it easier than ever to meet responsibly.
Our focus has always been on doing the right thing for our guests and the environment.
When it comes to meetings, we underscore our commitment to you and the environment by helping meetings become paperless with free WiFi and breakout meeting rooms.
At The Galmont Hotel, we set specific measurable targets each year which are reviewed monthly and quarterly. We have a dedicated green team who are management and staff and meet on a monthly basis to review all costs and environmental impacts. All activities are reviewed under the main environmental areas, waste, energy and water.
The hotel has a comprehensive “switch off and save programme” implemented and we identified our major energy using equipment and focused on managing specific equipment more carefully to achieve reductions. In the planning of the recent extensive renovation programme, the emphasis was on the use of energy efficient lighting solutions which are paying dividends already.
Water usage is a major factor in any hospitality company. We identified our major usage areas and have installed water saving devices in all bedrooms and public toilets. This is expected to reduce our water consumption in the hotel by 14,319 M³ this year.
There is a visible signage and awareness program in place. Segregation takes place in all departments of the hotel.
