CDL Hospitality Trusts - Sustainability Report 2022

Waste Segregation And Recycling Many of our hotels complete a waste segregation exercise prior to collection as an essential step in recycling. Waste is segregated into paper, plastic, and glass, and upon recycling, the respective weights of each category are reported monthly. This informs our waste management systems and denotes areas of improvement. Awareness campaigns are key to discouraging practices that generate excessive waste. As a result, our hotels engage in food waste reduction and recycling programmes for paper, glassware, and plastic, promoting a sense of purposeful contribution and environmentally friendly habits amongst our staff. This involves an interdepartmental collaboration across our housekeeping, food & beverages, and engineering departments. Action Across Hotels • W Singapore - Sentosa Cove recycles and reuses wet waste for landscaping purposes after its composting. It is also participating in the Food Waste Recycling Programme at Sentosa Cove Village. • Raffles Maldives Meradhoo has been operating a biogas plant since August 2022, which converts food waste into gas which is collected and used in the kitchen. The hotel also uses recycled materials derived from the hotel and island’s generated waste to operate its organic garden. • Angsana Velavaru started operating a food composter in 3Q 2022. This generates a daily average of 80kg of compost which is being used throughout the resort. The hotel has also implemented a Reduce, Reuse and Recycle policy to advocate for waste reduction, including advocacy for reusable glass bottles and dispensers as well as recycling on premises. The resort also invests in biodegradable items including garbage bags and cling film to reduce its plastic footprint. • Hilton Cambridge City Centre implemented its #RefuseTheStraw initiative, curbing single-use straws on its premises by shifting towards biodegradable straws. The use of biodegradable straws is aimed at protecting our oceans and ultimately reducing plastic use and pollution.
