CitySuites Ltd. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policy

1. Purpose

CitySuites is a five-star luxury ApartHotel situated in Central Salford, offering luxury self-contained apartments, leisure facilities and dining. It is our commitment to offer an indulgent experience whilst being able to demonstrate to any interested party, including staff, guests and the general public, that we act ethically and responsibly in all aspects of environmental, social and governance (ESG) throughout our operations.

This policy outlines our aim to help us deliver long-term value for our stakeholders, communities and the environment by integrating ESG considerations into our day-to-day business activities.

2. Training

We are entirely dedicated to being an environmentally and socially responsible organisation. We want to embed strong environmental principles across all aspects of our operations and continually improve our performance. To support this, we developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) in 2021, which meets the requirements of BS 8555:2016, which is under yearly review.

This includes an external environmental review of our current operations, followed by the creation of formalised procedures and processes to ensure compliance with the following:

  • The prevention of pollution through identification and careful control of any aspect of the business which may impact the environment
  • Fulfil the organisation’s compliance obligations as they relate to the environmental aspects of the business, which is supported by periodic compliance checks
  • Continual environmental improvement through the setting, reviewing, and updating of environmental objectives and targets which relate to our most significant aspects

3. Energy, Water and Waste

We are fully committed to the protection of the environment by reducing our impacts through energy efficiency, resource efficiency, water reduction, waste reduction and recycling. We firmly believe that ESG management is crucial to our long-term growth and profitability.

3.1 Energy

Whether it is heating our indoor pool or cooking guests’ delicious meals, we depend on energy to power our business. Equally, we know that this energy use impacts the planet. So, we are delighted that we have hit our target in 2022 to procure 100% renewable energy, having moved to a 100% renewable energy contract with our providers in September 2021. This means both our properties are now completely powered by clean electricity.

Every month, we track, monitor and report consumption across our operations. We have been reducing energy usage wherever possible, especially during the national lockdowns in 2020 and 2021. This included intentionally operating from a reduced number of floors, not heating our swimming pool and pool spa, replacing all our lighting with low energy LED lightbulbs, and installing PIR sensors. We also installed set timers on the fridges in our bar area, so they turn off automatically when not in use.

All employees undertake an environmental awareness course when they join us, which encompasses responsible energy usage. We also try to promote positive energy consumption practices among our guests. We have screens displayed around our properties promoting energy awareness and have implemented a ‘Switch Off’ policy, encouraging guests to switch off their appliances when not in use.

3.2 Water

In 2021, we essentially halved the water usage in our CitySuites Chapel Street property, from 12,328 cubic metres of water (m3) in 2020 to 6,294 m3 in 2021 — a 49% decrease in just one year. Our initiatives included turning off the water supply to our swimming pool and spa during the national lockdowns.

We also upgraded our water restrictors in both properties from yellow to blue, reducing the water flow to nine litres per minute — a 33% reduction across our basin taps and showers.

3.3 Waste

As single-use plastics, cleaning services and food waste are major contributors to waste in the hotel sector, we have pledged to reduce these wherever possible across our operations. We want to enforce a quality waste management programme, so guests have the same luxury experience — minus the unnecessary waste.

Compared to other hotels, we already use very little plastic in our operations. For example, all our luxury apartments provide complete guest amenities — cutlery, glasses and crockery — which drastically reduces the use of single-use plastics.

Some of the other small yet impactful switches we have made include:

  • All bottled water removed from guest rooms
  • Instilled a culture to refill toiletry bottles
  • Only glass bottles are used in our restaurants
  • Only eco-friendly coffee cups used in our restaurant and café
  • Switched to washable laundry bags only
  • Water machine in both gyms encouraging use of reusable bottles

We are proud to divert 100% of our waste from landfill — a milestone we certainly want to maintain in 2023. Properly segregating waste is also integral to the recycling process, which is why we have a tri-separator for waste on-site to segregate all general waste, paper, cardboard and glass bottles. We extended our segregation programme to include lights, ink cartridges and batteries, which are returned to a local recycling point.

We also expanded our efforts to address food waste. We now segregate all our food waste on-site before it is collected by our waste provider for recycling. We also recycle all our cooking oil. This helps alleviate the risk of pollution and it provides a green alternative to fossil fuels by producing biofuels. Our used cooking oil is collected by Olleco, whose facility can generate enough renewable biodiesel to fuel 1,632 heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) or 57,000 cars every year from all their clients.

Every month, we receive reports from our waste provider Freshwaste on both our properties. The waste report also delves into categories of waste, enabling us to effectively track each waste stream.

4. ESG Priorities, Initiatives and KPIs

The ESG Priorities and the associated initiatives and Key Performance indicators (KPIs) are focused on three areas:

  1. Environmental
  2. Social
  3. Governance

Every year, we review our goals from the previous ESG Report and set new targets in line with our ESG priorities for the next 12 months. In Q2 2023, we will publish our third annual ESG Report with external assessment undertaken by Sustainable Advantage.

4.1 Environmental considerations:

  • Lower our carbon intensity ratio by 5%
  • Maintain 100% of waste diverted from landfill and reduce total waste by 5%
  • Continue to procure 100% renewable electricity
  • Explore onsite energy generation at CitySuites’ properties
  • Assess impact of energy reduction initiatives against monthly consumption data

4.2 Social considerations

  • Share supplier code of conduct and supplier questionnaire with at least 80% of our supply chain and begin to capture supplier ESG data
  • Formalise CitySuites’ DE&I programme, supported by an employee Diversity and Inclusion council
  • Develop a formal wellbeing policy and strategy and select wellbeing champions to reinforce initiatives
  • Roll out a career development framework for all employees

4.3 Governance considerations

  • Calculate gender pay gap and set out an action plan to reduce any inequalities
  • Update ESG Policy annually

5. Review and updates

By implementing this ESG policy as part of our business, we will ensure that all our employees, guests, contractors and suppliers make a meaningful contribution to the quality of the local and global environment. This Policy has been communicated to all employees and will be communicated to any other interested parties working on our behalf. A copy will also be made available to any interested party upon request. This Policy will be reviewed annually to ensure that it remains relevant.

In light of the obligation to report on measures to ensure that all parts of our business and supply chain are slavery free we have put in place a designated Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy.

Our Anti-slavery Policy demonstrates our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

Internal employees:

Employees are required to familiarise themselves with all policies and procedures to assist in the identification and prevention of such criminal acts.

External supply chain

We fully expect that our direct supply chain members meet both legal and ethical standards in their daily operations while ensuring that compliance is managed appropriately across their own supply chain partners.

We have or intend to have in place systems to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect whistleblowers.

Supplier adherence to our values

We have zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we intend to review our agreements and dealings with suppliers and contractors to ensure compliance with anti slavery measures.


To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we intend to provide guidance and training to our staff. We will also encourage our business partners to provides training to their staff and suppliers and providers.

Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking

To make sure that we monitor our compliance with policy, we will use a number of key measures across our group of companies, including specifically Completion of all statutory requirements to ensure the right to work within the UK.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending December 2021.

Cleaning products and external company cleaning

At CitySuites we use cleaning products that are certificated to be effective against coronavirus viruses, bacteria and other airborne and blood-borne pathogens. All our external cleaning contractors also use products that carry the same certification.

  1. Public spaces and communal areas – The frequency of cleaning and sanitising has been increased in all public spaces with an emphasis on frequent contact surfaces including, but not limited to, front desk, door handles, public bathrooms, apartment key cards, lifts and stair handrails, dining surfaces and seating areas. All areas will also undergo regular spray treatment that is effective against coronavirus virus and other viruses and bacteria.
  2. Guest apartments – Industry-leading cleaning and sanitising protocols are used to clean our guest apartments, with particular attention paid to high-touch items including television remote controls, toilet seats and handles, door and furniture handles, intercom, light switches, temperature control panels and flooring.

ISAAP Accreditation

At CitySuites, we work to ensure our policies and procedures resonate with the expectations of the guest and the accommodation buyer.

It is our continuous policy to ensure that we are regularly externally tested against independent standards specific to the serviced accommodation sector of the hospitality industry. We do this annually by engaging with ISAAP (International Serviced Accommodation Accreditation Process) to provide our accreditation and certifications.

In doing so, we can point to having regularly achieved and exceeded the benchmark standards for accommodation cleanliness, procedural hygiene, infection prevention and control, health & safety practices, accommodation quality and comfort, and legality.
