We Care

The threat posed by climate change and the need to preserve natural resources are some of the most important issues facing us today. At The Duke of Richmond, we are keenly aware of our responsibility to confront these problems head-on, and have instituted a Green Team to investigate and implement the ways we can contribute to this global process.

We are committed to our community and dedicated to social responsibility. Supporting local charities, conservation, preservation, nature, heritage and green initiatives including the personal development of each member of the Red Carnation team, is at the heart of everything we do.

Keeping the Island Clean

It is important for us to keep our island clean and free of rubbish which has a detrimental impact on our environment in partnership with Island Waste. Everyone at the hotel gets involved in regular ‘clean-up's that allow us to improve on our recycling practices and minimize waste.

We have taken the inicitiave to start changing all our bin bags in the hotel to compostable bags allowing us to better save the island from all the plastic that is being used.
