Sustainability and Community

How our hotel supports sustainability and the community

Our team are dedicated to caring for the environment and community that is around us. We are taking steps to ensure that we are creating an environmentally sustainable living and working environment for our guests and colleagues. Here are some of the sustainability and community practices that we have implemented to do our part to make positive changes in the world.

     

    IHG® Green Engage

    IHG Green Engage

    We know that sustainability is as important to you as it is us. All IHG hotels use the IHG Green Engage system, an innovative online sustainability system that gives us the ability to manage our impact on the environment. We are a level two hotel and are working toward further improving our impact on the environment and community.

     

    Remove Plastic Straws

    Remove Plastic Straws

    In alignment with IHG’s pledge to remove single use plastic straws from all hotels, we have removed all plastic straws from our restaurant and bar in 2018.

     

    Upgrades in Technology 

    Updates in hotel technology

    In the past two years our hotel has invested in updating onsite technology to be more efficient, reduce electricity consumption and be more sustainable. The upgrade of our chillers on the hotel roof in 2018 has reduced electricity consumption by 18%. The 2020 upgrade of the hotel lifts has seen a 40% reduction in electricity consumption.

     

    OzHarvest

    OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation. They collect quality excess food from commercial outlets and deliver it directly to more than 1,300 charities across the country.

    Our hotel have pledged to not only raise funds, but also to donate food to this worthwhile charity.
