Whatley Manor in Wiltshire received the Sustainable Business Award at the 2021 Catey Awards, which took place on Tuesday 7 September. The annual awards ceremony, which had been a virtual event during last year’s lockdown, took place at the J W Marriott Grosvenor House London on Park Lane.
Sue Williams, General Manager of Whatley Manor, accepted the award, which was sponsored by procurement consultants 4C Associates, recognising the operator that has adopted the most innovative practices to make sustainability an integral part of their business.
Along with several other criteria, the judging panel looked for businesses that had implemented and achieved an action plan for mitigating their impact on the environment; evidence of educating and involving employees in achieving those goals; as well as evidence of involving guests in their sustainability practices.
After collecting the award, Williams said: “I am so delighted to have accepted this award on behalf of the entire team at Whatley Manor. Sustainability is such an important subject globally, which makes this recognition even more special.”
