Sustainability At Novotel Sydney International Airport

As a Gold Standard member of the Accor Planet 21 program, we are committed to a sustainable future.

It’s no secret that the hospitality industry has had a significant environmental impact - the sector is estimated to be responsible for 1% of global carbon output. To address these concerning statistics, Novotel Sydney International Airport is committed to making positive changes that will help us achieve a greener future in hospitality, and along with our parent company Accor, we have made many environmental commitments such as no more single use plastic by the end of 2022, halving our emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero by 2050. This news page will be regularly updated with our progress on becoming a more sustainable business and implementing changes at our hotel to reduce our footprint.

#NoMoreSingleUsePlastic by the end of THIS year!

Every year on Earth Day (April 22nd), Accor celebrates environmental commitments in hotels around the world. We want to make the world a better place and ensure that the benefits of tourism go beyond guests, out into the community and to the planet itself. This year, the Accor group has announced an ambitious goal: #NoMoreSingleUsePlastic by the end of THIS year!
