The Grand Brighton, the flagship hotel located on the Brighton’s seafront, has been certified as a Carbon Neutral hotel.

The accreditation is awarded by Carbon Neutral Britain, the organisation which created the UK’s carbon offsetting initiative.

The hotel has met and achieved all the initiative’s standards in measuring, calculating and carbon offsetting all organisational carbon emissions, with the long-term aim to be carbon zero in the future.

Carbon Neutral Britain was founded in 2020 and since has offset 500,000 tonnes of CO²e and planted over three million trees helping to stop climate change and provide essential habitats for endangered wildlife.

The hotel is also a member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme and has a gold grading standard which demonstrates its commitment to sustainable environmental practices.

Andrew Mosley, Manager Director of The Grand Brighton hotel, said: “We are thrilled to have achieved this accreditation from Carbon Neutral Britain to highlight our efforts in driving forward green initiatives throughout the hotel.

“As a hotel, we continually aspire to achieve improvements in our environmental performance and it will remain high on our agenda as we strive towards carbon zero.

“I’m proud we have been able to reduce our carbon footprint by offsetting our carbon emissions, it’s a huge step in the right direction.”
