Sustainable Development

 

Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by specifically focusing our sustainable tourism efforts on 5 goals which we feel we can specifically make a real difference with the help of our staff and guests.

 

GOAL 11 SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES TRANSPORT

Sustainable Cities and Communities Transport is the single largest contributor to tourism’s carbon footprint. We actively promote more sustainable mobility in Sydney by recommending attractions closer to the hotel, that uses public transport and people power (bicycles). Tourism can be a force for good. We promote local artisan provedores, arts and crafts and Aboriginal cultural heritage to foster the individual spirit and success of the talented individuals in our wonderful city and respect the first Australians and the rich culture and history of this place. Guests receive personalised itineraries updated four times a day using My Green Butler.

 

GOAL 12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION

The majority of tourism's footprint can be in the form of embedded carbon in the resources purchased, processed and consumed. We monitor our resource use and apply practices to limit wastage of resources. For example, we are restricting of laundering linen and towels by inviting guests to retain their linen and towels. All recyclable waste is reused, and organic waste processing. 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 work hard to limit temperatures to 1.5°C. 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.
