Staff and Management at the Twelve Apostles commit themselves to supporting and ensuring a sustainable environment both at home, at work and within our communities.
We strive to achieve this by actively participating in community projects targeted at sustainability, as well as educating and enhancing the lives of others. The Amy Biehl Foundation, a non-profit organisation based in Cape Town whose mission is to prevent youth violence through meaningful development programmes in socio-economically disadvantaged communities in and around Cape Town, has received ongoing support from The Red Carnation Hotel Collection since it was founded in 1997.
The Hotel also efficiently manages and measures our energy needs, reduces demand for energy with the use of new technology, and conserves natural resources, fauna and flora by protecting the Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site, which borders the hotel. We use products, responsible suppliers and materials which support and encourage sustainable practices and do not threaten our environment. We manage our waste streams to ensure we maximise recycling and minimize our demand on landfill space. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are our buzzwords to a sustainable future.
The Red Carnation Hotel Collection has also become the first worldwide company to achieve the new Gold Standard set by Investors in People, whose standards help organisations in every sector transform their business performance.
