Sustainable Events in Cork

Clayton Hotel Silver Springs is accredited by Green Tourism. We currently hold a gold certificate and our team are very proud of our achievement.

Living Green is Clayton Hotel Group’s environmental movement that inspires care for our environment as a “Way of Life” throughout our conference centre; both for our people and our guests.

We are continually working on our sustainable conferences and catering so we can positively impact on our environmental footprint.

Cork The Green Destination

Roaming green landscapes and the wild headlands in Cork are not the only ways we are green! Cork is a member of the Global Destination Sustainability Index, thanks to the city’s environmental strategy, its social sustainability performance, and the strategies and initiatives of the Cork Convention Bureau and Cork Chamber.

Our Green Commitments and Initiatives

Our Team

  • Our conference team members are part of the hotel Green Team, whose role is to increase awareness, idea generation, implementation of green measures and to educate colleagues on environmental issues and working practices.
  • Where practical we encourage our staff to use the bike to work scheme for transport to and from work.

Green Facilities

  • We offer our conference organisers and delegates complimentary WiFi, which allows conference organisers to go paperless with their dedicated conference app.
  • Given the scale of our Conference Centre, our waste management segregation plans prioritise recycling and reduction of single-use plastics.
  • Our bright and spacious conference room and syndicate rooms are flooded with natural daylight and are at pleasant temperature with direct ventilation.
  • During break times, the outdoor garden allows delegates to get some fresh air to ensure high levels of concentration for impending conference sessions.
  • LED lighting and motion sensors are installed throughout the conference room, syndicate meeting rooms, corridors and toilet facilities to reduce energy consumption when not in use.
  • Hybrid Air Conditioning Units throughout conference room and syndicate meeting rooms.
  • Aerators are fitted on all water taps throughout our conference centre to reduce water usage by 50%.
  • We have a demand response scheme where we use technology to monitor energy consumption in our conference centre.

Transport Options

  • We offer an electric car charger to our delegates.
  • Cork TFI rental bikes make it very easy to get around the city. There are several bike docks located around the city, making getting around easy and green.
  • We are located less than a 10-minute journey from Kent Rail station and offer complimentary access to coaches making it easy to arrange to pick up and drop off for your delegates and groups.

Green Conference Catering

Producer to plate is very important for our Head Chef Alexion, who works with suppliers that are local where possible so that we can cut down on our food miles. Our Chef will work with you on making your menu eco-friendly that suits the needs of your delegates. We will provide compostable cups and cutlery for coffee breaks and conference lunches. We have our herb garden, which allows us to have a wide array of organic fresh herbs adding only the best of flavour to our dishes and cocktails.
