Going green @ the Macdonald Windsor.

We are rolling out a new initiative to help the environment and reduce our carbon footprint. Macdonald Hotels’ Sustainability Plan is designed to make every aspect of the business and supply chain more sustainable. As part of this plan the Room 15 initiative lists 15 commitments to be realised by the year 2015. These cover the broad areas of the efficient use of energy and water and the use of renewable energy, the creation of Green Hotels, recycling, green purchasing, attention to the environmental effects of our day-to-day operations and the managing of our supply chains.
