A Green Eynsham

As an independent hotel operator, we are committed to ethical and responsible business practices and support initiatives that build relationships with the local communities in which we operate. We also recognise that our activities impact on both the local and national environments and as such, we are committed to protecting the environment through continual improvement of our environmental performance and prevention of pollution where possible.

Eynsham Hall complies with the requirements of environmental legislation as a minimum standard. We continuously strive to improve environmental performance and always assess the environmental impact of our future operations. We cascade environmental and CSR related information to our employees and review our policy annually.
