Our Environmental Policy
We recognize that our Outer Banks vacation rental properties impact the environment, both locally and globally. We wish to minimize that impact through continual improvement in the reduction of energy, water, waste and pollution.
We are making sincere efforts to:
• Understand the environmental issues associated with our Outer Banks rental properties.
• Incorporate environmental stewardship into our everyday operations.
• Monitor our energy, water, waste and pollution performance and set improvement targets.
• Work with our employees, suppliers, contractors and guests to minimize our impact.
• Inform our employees, vendors and guests on environmental issues, understanding that all play an important role in our environmental performance.
• Engage our properties with local communities, governments and environmental organizations.
• Encourage environmental purchasing whenever possible.
We perform these tasks with the understanding and hope that we can lessen our impact on both the Outer Banks and the global environment without negatively impacting our guest’s satisfaction, comfort or care.
