Sudima Auckland Airport First carboNZero Hotel in NZ

Press Release

For Immediate Release

25th June 2014

Sudima Auckland Airport First Hotel in New Zealand to become carboNZero Cert™ certified.

Sudima Auckland Airport is delighted to announce that it has achieved the major accolade of being the first hotel in New Zealand to attain carboNZero certification.

The hotel has set the bar very high for its sustainable building design since its opening in 2011, not resting on its laurels it has continued to develop its environmental practises.

It has committed to managing and reducing its emissions. It is also the first carbon neutral hotel in New Zealand to be certified through an internationally accredited greenhouse gas programme, carboNZero, having measured its greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2006.

The hotel features fridge-less rooms estimated to significantly reduce its carbon footprint by 236 trees per year.

Accommodation rooms employ a Chilled Beam Air-conditioning unit, which is unique to Sudima Auckland Airport Hotel in this part of the world. As well as being extremely energy efficient, it provides twice as much fresh air as any comparable system.

Rooms also offer paperless Compendiums and the entire property and building structure is designed to harvest rain water in order to recycle and filter for non-potable use.

Director of Operations for Sudima Hotel Group, Les Morgan says it is very pleasing to have the hard work of our team members recognised for formalising the environmental practises that our guests have enjoyed over the past three years.

“It’s a tremendous achievement and now forms an important part of our Sudima story,” he said.

Enviro-Mark Solutions CEO Dr Ann Smith praises Sudima Auckland Airport Hotel’s commitment to leading its industry in taking responsibility for the greenhouse gas impact the organisation has.

“It is great to see a company like Sudima taking action to reduce their impacts. This achievement should be celebrated by everyone at Sudima Auckland Airport Hotel and we look forward to seeing how this leadership evolves in their sector.”

Since the Hotel opened for business in 2011, it has enjoyed great occupancy levels with its convenient location near the domestic and international airports.
