Making the world better, together

Here at Premier Inn we care about the planet and its people, and we’re always finding ways to be a more responsible business. That’s why we created Good Together - so we can work with our guests and suppliers to make the world a better place. It’s all about taking responsibility for how our businesses affect the people and places around us. 

Helping you to be healthier

We’re working with our suppliers to reduce salt and sugar levels in our restaurant dishes, and we support the Department of Health's Responsibility Deal pledge on salt reduction. 

We source responsibly

We make sure we source responsibly throughout our supply chain. 

Investing in people

We train our people, giving them valuable skills to help further their careers. Whitbread's Investing in Skills & Employment scheme aims to create 6000 apprenticeships, 7500 placements and 6500 jobs by 2020.

Building a future for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital

We're raising £7.5 million to build a state-of-the-art medical wing at Great Ormond Street Hospital so that mum and dad can stay overnight with their children during their treatment. We're nearly there and your help has taken us a step closer!

Bernard Bear

Why not treat your child to a lovely cuddly bear and raise money for a great cause? Our Bernard bear is available in all our hotels to help raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. You can buy him for £10, with all proceeds donated to GOSH.

How we’re green

No such thing as leftovers

Our food waste is segregated and goes to composting or ‘anaerobic digestion’, which means we turn it into electrical energy for the country. Who knows, our leftover food scraps could be powering your computer screen right now...

We’re big on recycling

At the moment, we recycle 70% of our domestic waste, and we’re aiming for 80% by 2020. We also partner with Costa Coffee, transforming the hessian sacks which transport their coffee beans into carpet underlay for our hotels.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We’re proud to have received The Carbon Trust Triple Standard for Carbon, Water & Waste. It recognises our fantastic achievements in reductions across these areas, and really shows our commitment to the environment.

We’re energy-conscious

We’ve replaced 100,000 standard lightbulbs with LED ones in the last four years, because they last 40 times longer and use less power. We’ve also doubled our use of solar panels, with 88 of our hotels now powered by the sun.

Our beds are 100% recycled

When we replace a bed, the old one is 100% recycled. Wood is burnt for energy, springs are made into new steel, and fillings & fabric are transformed into other items. Nothing is wasted.

We help save water

Last year, we installed grey water recycling systems at 14 of our hotels. And that’s just the beginning - we're also installing more low flow shower heads and taps as well as dual flush toilets at all our new hotels.

Make your stay a little greener

  • Save energy by turning off the lights as you leave the room.
  • Ask us to email your invoice to you rather than give you a paper one.
  • If you’re staying more than one night, re-use your towel.
