New Zealand’s Sudima Hotels has doubled-down on its environmental and sustainability credentials, saying that despite the pandemic, the brand has committed to a range of new initiatives to boost its green operations.
The company has coincided its signing of a new housekeeping partnership with ahs hospitality with a new commitment to rid its hotel network of all single-use plastics. The hotel recently became the first accommodation group in New Zealand to discontinue plastic straws.
Sudima Hotels Chief Operating Officer, Les Morgan, said the brand has not compromised on its values to ‘do the right thing’ and maintain its sustainability objectives.
“We demonstrate our values, and sometimes this is hard to do, but we are committed. One example is being carbon neutral; this is a great achievement,” Morgan said.
AHS hospitality Executive General Manager, Kylie Maxwell, said she was looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Sudima Hotels.
“We are excited to be starting this partnership, sharing our goals and demonstrating our values,” she said.
Sudima Hotels currently operates four properties in New Zealand and has three more in its pipeline. The company has hinted future acquisitions could be on the cards in Australia, which would see the brand migrate across the Tasman in future.
