Sustainability

Our eco commitment

At The Queens, we’re devoted to mitigating our environmental impact and finding ways to build on our sustainability efforts. 

From establishing our own, in-house green team to tracking the carbon footprint of our dishes, we’re taking steps to be accountable for our impact today – and to shape a responsible and forward-thinking business for tomorrow.  

Sustainability on site 

A little more action, please

Actions speak louder than words, which is why we’ve established a team of people on-site to drive our sustainability efforts. Here are just a few of the ways we’re moving towards a more sustainable place to stay in Leeds. 

  • Refillable toiletries in rooms
  • Phasing out gas throughout the hotel
  • Carbon footprints on all our menus
  • Eradicating single-use plastics 

For full details, read our Environmental, Social and Governance Policy.  

The wider community

Connected, committed

As well as our environmental efforts, we care about our community and the people in it. We prioritise the wellbeing of our stakeholders, actively engaging with the local area through strategic partnerships with charitable trusts.  

Our people

Showing we care

We understand that our passionate team are our greatest asset, so we’re committed to providing a secure, supportive place to work. We back this up with initiatives like mental wellbeing support, on-site human resources and comprehensive workplace health and safety measures.

Green Key and Green Tourism

Making it official

We’re actively working towards a number of internationally recognised certifications, including Green Key, a standard of excellence in environmental responsibility, and Green Tourism, the world’s leading sustainability accreditation.  

Electric vehicles

Take charge

You’ll find an EV charging point near the hotel on New Station Street.
