Nirvana Spa and Pulse 8 adopt many Green initiatives and is committed to reducing its impact on the environment.
We are committed to ensuring energy efficient buildings, plant, machinery and working practices. Our future purchase policy for new and replacement facilities and equipment is based upon materials which offer maximum energy efficiency and conservation
Below are just a few examples of current progress and initiatives we have adopted
Carbon Trust Energy Survey
Nirvana Spa & Leisure Ltd “demonstrated a commitment to reducing energy consumed and carbon emissions and is to be commended” – Carbon Trust Inspector
Following the full energy audit carried out by the Carbon Trust, the following initiatives have been implemented:
• Light/Movement Sensors
Light sensors have been fitted to all outside lighting and movement sensors in store cupboards to ensure lighting is not switched on unnecessarily.
• Staff Training
A rigid procedure has been set with the assistance of our contract Cleaning company to ensure all lights are switched off at night and only switched on when required for cleaning. In addition to this all Staff are trained to switch off all computers, TV’s and other electrical equipment at night and not purely left on ‘stand by’. This policy has reduced our ‘out of trade’ hours electricity usage by up to 11%.
In order to reduce energy lose from our boilers we have upgraded all the hot water pipe insulation in the plant rooms and on our boilers.
In Addition We Have Also Established The Following Initiatives
As part of our on going review of waste we are currently reviewing improved recycling and reduction of waste produced on site. Through the use of ‘paper only’ bins within all Staff / office areas and the recycling of all delivery boxes we have increased our recovery on paper / card waste by 50%. In addition we are now recycling all glass on site. This in turn has reduced our waste to landfill by 25%.
• Green Working Group
Last year we formed a Green Working Group. This is a Group of 6 members of Staff who meet every 6 weeks to set out action points on Green issues, this covers a range of issues from recycling / reducing waste, reviewing suppliers for the use of recycled / renewable materials and Reduction of energy usage.
• Low Energy Lighting
Throughout both Nirvana Spa and Pulse 8 Health and Fitness Club the company has a policy for the purchase of Low Energy Lighting. We are in the process of upgrading certain areas which include the installation of the ‘state of the art’ LED lighting around our Roman Pool.
Our high tech, eco friendly laundry facility has recently been installed. These new machines have reduced energy consumption by upto 50%, and use upto 40% less detergent
