To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; Student Minds, LandAid and Just a Drop.Show me all news

Plastic is all around us; in your home, university, shops, restaurants and even as you walk down the high street. But unfortunately, each year approximately 8.8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the World’s oceans which endangers wildlife, pollutes the water, and puts human health at risk.
