Our Sustainability Plans


Ardoch’s vision for the future is to be a responsible venue with the environment and future sustainability at the heart of what we do. Our intention is to always be considerate of the environment, our people and the local community throughout our operations. 

To do this we acknowledge that green sustainability is a journey and not a place and we are dedicated to continuous improvement in this area and actively working towards the implementation of proactive measures to help to protect our environment.

We will work with our team, suppliers and guests to improve our procedures and fully integrate environmental best practices into our daily operations.

Our Strategy

  • To take responsibility for our impact on the environment.
  • To plan ahead with achievable goals in environmental best practice.
  • To conduct a full supply chain review and source suppliers and partners responsibly.
  • To educate, train and build awareness amongst our team, guests and suppliers, ensuring we fully understand our responsibilities and commitment to creating a sustainable business.
  • To reduce, reuse and recycle.
  • To improve energy management.
  • To improve waste management.
  • To support and use suppliers with good Environmental Policies.


Examples of action areas we currently implement:

  • Comprehensive recycling policy.
  • Removal of single-use plastic items where possible.
  • Manage the use and reduction of utilities, energy, and water through our equipment selection, energy management systems (including our biomass boiler), policies, and staff awareness.
  • Develop a purchasing policy in place with a preference for local, sustainable, low energy, low air miles and ethical purchases. 
  • Work on sustainable food sourcing policy and work with Caterers who like to use local produce wherever possible.
