Kerry hotels Ballygarry House and Castlerosse Park Resort have become the first hotels to join Flogas's newly-launched carbon offsetting initiative.
The two hotels will now compensate for over 700 tonnes in LPG-related carbon emissions in 2020 by investing in climate protection projects via Flogas and its collaboration with South Pole.
Carbon emission reductions are certified through globally recognised standards and audited by independent third parties.
"A Superb Initiative"
Ballygarry House proprietor Padraig McGillicuddy stated, "This is a superb initiative and makes us all more accountable for our carbon footprint. We are delighted to lead the way on this and encourage other hotels and industry to do similar and reduce our impact and improve sustainability on our precious planet."
Meanwhile, Castlerosse Park Resort deputy general manager Mark Bowe commented, "We are delighted to team up with Flogas on its carbon offsetting initiative. Flogas can help us with our 'green agenda', as we believe that we all have an important role to play in protecting and enhancing the environment and our wonderful location."
Flogas Ireland managing director John Rooney added, "We're delighted to welcome Ballygarry House and Castlerosse Park as our very first customers for the carbon offsetting initiative. We would also urge other business customers to take a proactive approach towards tackling climate change and differentiate themselves from the competition."
