Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by specifically focusing our sustainable tourism efforts on five goals where we feel we can make a real difference with the help of our staff and guests.
GOAL 11 SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES TRANSPORT
Transport is the single largest contributor to tourism’s carbon footprint. We actively promote more sustainable mobility in Sydney by recommending attractions close to the hotel, and ones that are accessible by public transport and people power (bicycles). Tourism can be a force for good. By using My Green Butler, guests receive personalised itineraries updated four times a day. We support local artisan provedores, arts and crafts to foster the individual spirit and success of the talented individuals in our wonderful city. We also promote Aboriginal cultural heritage and respect for the First Nations people who nurtured the rich culture and history of this place.
GOAL 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
Much of tourism's environmental footprint is embedded as carbon in the resources purchased, processed and consumed. We monitor our resource use and apply best green practices to limit wastage of resources. For example, we invite guests to re-use their linen and towels, which minimises laundering linen. Waste is sorted and wherever possible, recyclables are reused. We seek to reduce impacts by synchronising both staff and guest use of resources to minimise waste using My Green Butler, a UNEP One Planet Programme partner.
GOAL 13 CLIMATE ACTION
Tourism accounts for 8% of the world’s global carbon emissions. We have taken Climate Actions by setting science-based targets to reduce our emissions to help keep global temperatures below a 2°C rise and are working hard to limit temperatures to a 1.5°C rise.
GOAL 14 LIFE BELOW WATER AND GOAL 15 LIFE ON LAND
Food procurement can have a significant impact on food miles and agricultural systems. We buy only our provisions from NSW producers, purchase only responsible seafood and support the Wheen Bee Foundation to help protect bees which are essential for the pollination of our agricultural produce.
