Caring for the environment

Caring for the environment

We recognise that we have a very important role to play in protecting and enhancing our local environment.

In 2020 CityNorth Hotel created a “Green Team”, with some ambitious goals put in place to improve our working environment and long-term sustainability of the hotel within our local biosphere. The hotel is working towards operating at 100% sustainability and the team are actively working towards this goal.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

All bulbs have been replaced with energy-efficient LED bulbs and fittings which have reduced energy output by 60%. Censored lighting has been fitted in common areas to manage energy efficiency.

A sensory software management system has been put in place to manage energy wastage in our bedrooms.  Over 90% of energy wastage in hotels occurs in guest bedrooms.  This system allows us to optimise energy consumption by turning off lighting and adjusting climate control systems when guests are not in rooms for long periods of time, or when rooms are unoccupied.

We have electric car charging stations available on our campus.

Elimination of Single Use Plastics

  • We have replaced any cosmetic products containing microbeads and will have phased out the use of single use plastic consumables by March 2022.
  • Plastic straws have been replaced with paper straws
  • All take away food packaging is resusable and recyclable and no plastic is used.
  • A water filtration system has been installed and we have entirely eliminated the use of plastic water bottles.
  • Every effort is made throughout our operations to reduce or eliminate the use of plastics

Water Sustainability

All water used by CityNorth Hotel originates in two onsite wells. Signage in our rooms encourages guests to preserve water.

Waste Management

The Green Team has recently audited waste management processes at CityNorth Hotel.  Policies are in place for segregated waste management encouraging recycling and reducing landfill. Ongoing training with staff will help us to reach our target of zero percent landfill by the end of 2022.

Sustainable Food Practices

Our chefs have a policy in place to use locally sourced, sustainable products where possible.  Food waste is managed with targets in place for always reducing food waste.
