At The Ross
“WE ARE THE FIRST GENERATION TO FEEL THE EFFECT OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION WHO CAN DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT” – BARACK OBAMA
The Ross is located in one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Protecting this amazing landscape and environment is extremely important to us at both The Killarney Park and The Ross Hotel.
In line with this we continually strive to improve our environment practices in a range of areas including energy, single use plastic and water usage. We also continue to develop a number of ecotourism experiences for our customers to enjoy.
We are Gold Certified members of The Green Hospitality Programme which is the only Irish environmental certification standard for the hospitality sector. The GreenHospitality.ie Eco-label and Awards are recognised both nationally and internationally as standards that allow members to achieve good environmental performance and allow visitors to choose “Greener” hospitality businesses, knowing that defined criteria are being implemented and monitored.
We are founding members of The Killarney Hotels Sustainability Group which is a group of hotels totalling more than 3,000 bedrooms that take protecting our landscape and environment at the forefront of what we do.
UNWTO Definition for Sustainability, “Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment, and host communities.”
