#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!

With just 8 months to go until the end of 2022, we have committed to the goal of eliminating all guest-related single-use plastic items at Novotel Sydney International Airport by the end of the year.

To help us get there, each hotel has been given a sustainability reporting tool where the single-use plastics still present in Accor environments have been split into 8 categories (straws and stirrers, individual toiletries bottles, disposable cups, water bottles, water bottles in rooms, vanity sets, bags, miscellaneous in F&B). Regional teams are all reporting on their plastic reduction successes in those categories, every month.

You can read more about the commitments here. We'll keep you updated with our progress throughout the year - stay tuned!
