ECOsmart Platinum venue installed over 2,700 solar panels for green energy
Focusing on the Footprint
Focusing on the property’s environmental footprint reveals a pathway to a more environmentally friendly and sustainable building. Opportunities open up for optimising light, heat and water management. Moving to 100% renewable energy sources enables you to reduce your carbon footprint, improve your energy security and significantly reduce your energy costs.

Reduce, Re-Use & Recycle
Traditionally a large volume of food, packaging and non-food waste is produced by hospitality and hotel venues. The focus here is on creating a meaningful plan for reducing waste, eliminating single use plastics and recycling everything you can. In addition to improved sustainability, it can also benefit the bottom line in terms of reducing food costs.
ECOsmart Platinum venue has 30 chargers for electric vehicles
Adjusting the Environment
This is about bringing green initiatives to your property and adjusting the environment and facilities to incorporate eco-friendly elements that enhance rather than detract from the guest experience.
