Novotel Sydney Airport Achieves Gold Standard in Acting Here Planet 21 Program

The Acting Here Planet 21 program was launched by Accor in 2011 to address the responsibilities of the hospitality industry in a changing climate. Novotel Sydney International Airport has participated in this program and is committed to making positive changes that will help us achieve a greener future in hospitality.

Accor’s ambitious sustainability goals are based around four strategic priorities: work with its employees, involve its customers, innovate with its partners, and work with local communities. The Planet 21 program features an action plan with 65 unique actions to promote sustainable development. A four-level rating system categorises each hotel’s progress into a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum level. In the ten years since the program began, Novotel Sydney International Airport has achieved a Gold standard through our sustainability efforts which puts us in the top 28% of Accor hotels as of 2019. Our guests will soon be able to see each hotel’s Planet 21 rating on and can factor in this information when comparing booking options.
