The Example Hotel

At The Example Hotel, we operate to high standards of performance and advocate socially and environmentally sustainable business practices. Our aim is to bring a positive benefit to the societies in which we operate through high quality services, economic growth, environmental protection, community involvement and employment. In order to adhere to these principles, we endeavor to:

  • Set sound environmental and social objectives and targets, and integrate a process of review and reporting.
  • Comply with all applicable environmental laws, statutes, and regulations.
  • Continuously improve environmental performance and reduce environmental impact of our activities.
  • Create environmental awareness among our employees, customers, suppliers and the community at large.
