Melbourne, Australia - November 2023

APIC recognises the critical need for hotels to measure and reduce their electricity consumption, carbon emissions, and water usage per room or per guest.


As environmental concerns continue to grow globally, APIC is working closely with Melbourne-based hotels to develop sustainable solutions that align with international standards. Through this collaboration, APIC aims to empower hotels in adopting eco-friendly practices that not only benefit the environment but also contribute to long-term financial savings.


One of the most important requirements identified by APIC is the measurement of electricity consumption, carbon emissions, and water usage on a per-room or per-guest basis. By accurately tracking these metrics, hotels can identify areas for improvement and implement effective strategies to minimise their environmental footprint.


Furthermore, APIC emphasizes the significance of considering factors such as laundry loads and usage patterns when implementing sustainable practices. By optimizing laundry processes and monitoring usage factors, hotels can significantly contribute to reducing energy consumption and water waste.


Armin Honarasa, CEO of Australia Pacific Industry Certification, believes that sustainability should be a top priority for all businesses within the hotel industry. He states, "As leaders in our respective industries, we have a responsibility to act sustainably and protect our environment. By working together with Melbourne-based hotels, we aim to create a greener future for both our communities and guests."


APIC's commitment to promoting sustainability extends beyond certification services; it includes providing comprehensive guidance on best practices tailored specifically for the hotel industry. These initiatives are designed to ensure that Australian hotels are equipped with practical tools and strategies necessary for reducing their environmental impact while maintaining exceptional guest experiences.


With increasing consumer expectations centered around sustainability practices, hotels that embrace this change will gain a competitive advantage in the market. APIC encourages all Australian hotels to join the movement towards a more sustainable future and take proactive steps to reduce their ecological footprint.
