Sudima Hotels owns and operates NZ’s only three CarboNZero certified hotels. All of Sudima’s new hotels aim to achieve CarboNZero certification after one year of operation.
CarboNZero forms part of a strategic commitment to reducing the environmental footprint at every operational level, engaging every team member. Sudima established a guiding framework: Sudima CARES. At monthly meetings, teams report on progress against goals. Annually, all hotels unite to discuss best practice and new ideas.
In the last year, Sudima Hotels have decreased carbon emissions by an audited 46.8 metric tonnes across the Group. Water usage has been reduced by 21 litres for each kilogram of linen washed. Across the Group, landfill waste has been cut by 12%. It aims to become single-use plastic free by 2020.
