To inspire happy and healthy people, and to protect our beautiful planet.
We have big dreams to make a positive impact on the communities we touch and the world's precious resources. Taking action today for our kids and the ones to come to live well on a thriving planet. That's why we've committed to net zero and have a bunch of sustainability initiatives in action.
Whether you’re a guest, roommate or in our local or global community we want to celebrate you.
This is what we’re doing:
You’ll find plants galore in our hometels, connecting you to nature and cleaning the air you breathe.
There's healthy and plant-based food options across all hometels, good for you and the planet.
We pay fair wages and offer great benefits. You might find us at an art show or a weekend away together.
Having a positive impact in our local communities is important. So we partnered with SPEAR to provide 25,000 nights in room2 Hammersmith to the homeless and delivered Christmas meals.Read more about our partnership
We’re big fans of this planet and want to have a positive impact on it.
Here are some things we’re doing:
Whole life net zero basically means that all the carbon emissions from the life cycle of the building will = zero. This is everything from the raw materials to end-of-life and everything in between. We’re the first to do this but hopefully not the last.
If you want to see our plans and numbers then check out the roadmap to net zero.Read the roadmap
room2 Chiswick will operate at 89% less energy than a typical UK hotel. We’ve achieved this through things like insulation, installing a heat pump and the design of our building.More on sustainability
All of the energy demand is met by renewables. We also make some of our own energy through solar panels and heatpumps.
We couldn't find any recycling bins that were up to scratch, so we designed our own 3-in-1 recycling bins. The food waste is made into energy off-site.
Hard and soft technologies have been used to lower carbon like designing our own lab rooms to monitor energy usage throughout the rooms to see where improvements can be made. We're also piloting a reused battery cell technology with M-BRIC.
Any remaining carbon will be offset by planting and maintaining giant clumping bamboo in Nicaragua. Bamboo is pretty awesome, harvesting it doesn’t kill the plant so it can regenerate.Learn more
