At Red Carnation Hotels, we are continuing to lead the hotel sustainability movement by launching a series of energy initiatives to lower our carbon footprint, working in partnership with Businesswise Solutions. As a collection, we have made great strides in our environmental and sustainable commitments, including continuing to eliminate single-use plastics across our hotels. 

In partnership with Businesswise Solutions, we have committed to securing 100% renewable electricity for our entire portfolio by joining the ‘hotel renewable energy basket’. This initiative powered by Businesswise is supported by the ‘Energy & Environmental Alliance’, a new organisation set up to help global accommodation providers lead on impactful practices benefiting the planet, people and profit. 
We will also be deploying a new energy technology solution - Energy-Management-as-a-Service Powered by Businesswise SolutionsTM (EMaaS) - to improve its overall energy efficiency in our UK properties. The aim is to create centres of excellence in energy management reduction, which will allow us to eliminate all energy waste from our operations. 
Managing Director, Jonathan Raggett commented on our new partnership: 
‘It was important for us to work with a partner who shared our vision and sustainability goals, as well as one who could provide us with a complete end-to-end service. 
After talking to Businesswise’s energy experts and seeing the technology in action we were confident the Businesswise offering would give us the visibility needed to reduce our energy consumption and carbon output, without impacting on service excellence and the unique guest experience Red Carnation prides itself in providing.’ 

Businesswise Solutions CEO, Frazer Durris added: 
‘It’s great to partner with a prestigious hotel group who are passionate and committed to making a really positive environmental impact. 
Our expert people and technology solutions mean Red Carnation Group not only has complete visibility of its energy consumption but will also benefit from the actionable insight, that will bring about positive sustainable changes for the group. This will also drive significant cost value to the group that will allow them to reinvest to further reduce carbon output
We look forward to taking Red Carnation Group to the next level on its ambitious sustainability journey.’
