Sustainability at Wildlands
Team trained and briefed on our environmental policies and best practices implemented. We have an internal Environmental Officer who holds regular meetings with representatives from all departments in this regard (our “Green Team”).
Team encouraged and rewarded for promoting, suggesting, and implementing new environmental best practices.
In May 2023 we installed a 58.80kWp PV solar panel system which comprises over a third of our main building’s roof. This installation will lead to a significant reduction in our carbon footprint - we will receive almost 27% of our annual energy from the sun after the installation.
Energy efficient lighting in in place throughout the main building (2500 sqm) and in our 14 self-catering cabins. Motion sensors for lighting used inside the main building and in the cabins.
Energy efficient windows used throughout all buildings.
Our food packaging in our food outlets (Olive Tree Kitchen and Wildlands Wagon) is compostable and eco-friendly, except for our roast containers, which are recyclable. We work with our suppliers to reduce unnecessary packaging.
Recycle program for paper, metal, plastic, glass, polystyrene, and food waste.
Vegetable garden on site is planted and maintained on organic principles, eliminating the use of all unnatural and harmful fertilizers.
We compost all applicable waste in our kitchen, restaurant, food offerings, cabins, staff room and offices.
Coffee grounds, eggshells and tea leaves are separated, and our Head Baker uses this waste for worm comporting purposes, creating nutrient rich clean compost which we use on-site.
Use of produce from our vegetable garden in our kitchens.
Our food outlets are completely free of single-use plastics.
We have a zero-waste policy in our food outlets. Traditional homemade cooking methods are used. Weekly checks and management of food bin weights to ensure that this policy continues.
Our food is sourced from local producers thereby reducing carbon footprint, and impact on the environment. Meat, fresh fish, salads, eggs, and cheeses are from the locality. As much produce as possible is sourced from small artisan producers.
Organic food and beverage options are used where available and applicable.
We have bins in all 14 self-catering cabins to encourage our guests to separate their waste also. The bins have clearly marked compartments for recycling, composting and general waste. We have guest information in our cabins to invite our guests to help us with waste separation.
Our annual “Wildlands Winter Wonderland” Christmas event gifts all children with sustainable eco-friendly toys. We have a no plastic gift policy for this event which gifts thousands of children each year.
We have digitalised how we work across the majority of our departments, and we aim to be a 90% paperless work environment by 2024.
We have planted native trees throughout to create strong habitats for birds and other wildlife.
We use water efficient taps in our main building (2500 sqm), showers, and toilets and we use towel and linen reuse programmes for our self-catering cabins as well as recycling and composting programmes throughout the business.
Since our inception we have, and we continue to engage with, local expert environmental consultants. These experts carried extensive Natural Impact Assessment and Environmental Impact Assessments on our behalf and our location was strategically chosen to avoid any disruption to the natural woodland in the area.
Significant parts of our main building and all self-catering cabins were constructed using sustainable timber frame methods.
All landscaping at Wildlands uses native species to the area.
We moved to digital business cards, removing circa 5000 cards annually across the business.
