Sustainability

TFE Hotels TFE Hotels has measures in place for recycling and minimising waste, effective water and energy consumption across our network of hotels in Australia, New Zealand and Europe. We have started a project to get our buildings NABERs rated. So far three of our hotels based in Perth are NABERS rated. Some of our Hotels like Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne Southbank’s use of cross laminated timber materials - are using the latest advanced green technology in construction. Some of the initiatives include Green clean, which reduces the number of times a room is cleaned for a long staying guest there by reducing the quantity of chemicals used as well as water and chemicals used to clean the linen. For room and public area cleaning, we use eco- friendly cleaning products which are Eco-label or green seal certified, provided by leading manufacturers Chemicals used for cleaning air conditioning filters and coil are environment friendly and non-acidic. All our hotels have introduced energy saving light bulbs, reducing the overall energy consumption. We also use energy efficient star-rated appliances, especially in apartment hotels where there are more appliances per room to minimise power consumption. Hotels in our group have installed sensor activated air-conditioning as well as lights. This significantly reduces the energy consumption by switching off air conditioning us well as lights when the room is not occupied. Newer hotels have introduced metallic woven fabric embedded between double glazing windows to reduce energy consumption as well as sensor activated blinds. We realise that limiting our impact on the environment has to be multipronged approach hence we have started introducing Bathroom amenities which are line with our environmental ethos.
