Our Pledge

The Athenaeum Hotel and Residences is passionately committed to operating more sustainably. As an environmentally conscious hotel, we have applied both policies and initiatives to meet our underlying responsibilities to operate in a manner that will reduce our footprint.

We strive to focus on key areas such as the environment, our colleagues, and community. We encourage team members to help with our commitment through public transport loans and a cycle to work scheme. We also aim to build relationships with our local community by volunteering and contributing to various programmes.
