What we do
Reducing our impact
The Club is diverse in the facilities and products it has to offer and is committed to reducing the impact we have on our environment, the ways we do this are:-
We have our own water supply and treatment plant. This makes us self-sufficient and able to supply quality water with little environmental impact.
We use low-energy LED light fittings and have installed sensor lighting in low-use areas. We continually monitor our energy levels.
We recycle our plastic, cardboard, tins, aluminium, bottles, newspapers and cooking oil and use a zero to landfill waste company. We encourage our guests to recycle in the apartments.
We buy the majority of our food and drink from local suppliers and serve it in all of our dining areas.
We work closely with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust to provide bird-watching facilities on the Tamar Estuary. Our Woodland Fairy Trail nature walk is designed to be fun and interactive, helping children learn about the local wildlife.
We continue to invest in energy-efficient infrastructure, this includes the use of combined heat and power equipment, efficient boilers, air handling systems, pump inverters and a self-contained irrigation system with a weather station to enhance water efficiency.
Our Plastic Free Culture
We have carried out a number of important steps in a bid to reduce plastic use and are listed on the Plastic Free Directory.
We are registered on https://www.refill.org.uk/ a community that promotes free water refills to save on plastic waste.
As a leading health club facility, we actively promote healthy living and encourage members and guests to lead healthy lifestyles by using the diverse facilities we have to offer.
We have a 165kw Solar array on our main Club roof helping us to reduce our carbon footprint.
We have an Employee Green Team who are responsible for departmental initiatives.
We work with the Cornwall Beekeeping Association and host two beehives on-site. This amounts to around 50,000 bees in mid-July and around 10,000 bees in the Winter months.
We continue to develop wild flower planting areas on our grounds to aid the local wildlife.
We use 100% organic beauty products in our Barn Spa – beauty & wellbeing.
We are proud to have supported the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative and continue to contribute to improve the biodiversity of our local environment.
China Fleet Country Club is committed to becoming a more sustainable business, we continue to research and invest in the latest technology and keep it at the forefront of our business strategy.
