WHERE ARE WE AT?
STAY Camden has achieved third-party recognition for our efforts in both sustainability and community.
As we work on our own carbon-reducing initiatives, STAY Camden is neutral for its 2022 reporting period; offset via Verra credits, supporting a wind-farm project in Brazil.
Reduce scopes 1 and 2 carbon emissions
Reduce water consumption
Reduce waste output
SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH DESIGN
STAY’s in-house design team works with local suppliers to provide iconic pieces for our properties, such as this 6ft-reception desk.
STAY appointed a London-based furniature business with sustainability at its core, to craft the table from offcuts of marble, otherwise destined for waste.
STAY Camden has brown roofs on each building that promotes natural seed dispersal and increases biodiversity.
Brown roofs are made from a special substrate that mimics the original ‘brown-field’ site present before the building was constructed. The brown roof is then left for plants to self-colonize, helped by the wind or birds.
In 2023, STAY introduced hand-woven rugs, made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, in conjunction with female founded business, Holmes Bespoke, as part of their sustainable collection.
PLASTIC FREE HAMPERS
Welcome items are packaged in biodegradable, plastic free wrappers.
This helps to reduce linen changes and with it, unnecessary water consumption.
ECO CLEANING PRODUCTS
We only use non-toxic chemicals for conscious cleaning.
No more plastic bottles. Instead we provide refillable carafes and a water station in each building.
Recycling and responsible waste management made easy for our guests.
We provide a neighbourhood e-guide to help you get the most out of your new home-from-home. We encourage you to support the abundance of independent vendors in the local area, and provide some lower-carbon options too. We even have a dog-friendly guide too.
Our colleagues are given one paid day a year to volunteer for a cause of their own choice. We also provide opportunities such as canal-clean ups or charity collection activities if they’d like some inspiration. Together with our parent company, LabTech we support a number of local social and environmental initiatives via donations, fundraising and volunteering activities.
When we work together we can achieve more, which is why we encourage you get involved too.
We collect donations of surplus or unopened food items, which we take to our local foodbank in Camden each week.
recycling & WASTE
We encourage the use of the 3-compartment bins in each apartment, allowing our partners at iRecycle to easily sort the non-recyclable materials for energy to waste, meaning zero waste ends up in landfill.
MAKING LOW CARBON CHOICES
As a car-free site, we offer complimentary on-site bike storage and recommend public transportation options in our e-guides. There’s also a selection of local activities such as canal-tours, jogging maps and walking tours.
STAY sponsored an offsite apiary in the countryside to help boost the UK’s declining bee population.
