Australia: Accor Supports Greener Future

In partnership with:

Hotel operator Accor has partnered with Greening Australia on a new initiative that will see more than 50,000 trees planted across Australia over five years. As part of Accor’s Plant for the Planet program, trees will be planted to support several of Greening Australia’s large scale restoration projects across the country.

Accor’s chief operating officer Accor Pacific, Simon McGrath, said through the group’s sustainable development program, Planet 21, Accor is deepening its focus on preserving the ecosystems in which its hotels operate.

“Planet 21 is as much about inviting our guests to join us on our sustainability journey as it is about engaging our employees and hotel owners to improve their sustainability performance, products and services,” he said.

“Through our partnership with Greening Australia we are putting large scale landscape restoration, and people and wildlife thriving together as a top priority for our organisation as we strive to leave our planet in good health for generations of hoteliers and guests to come.” 

Greening Australia chief executive, Brendan Foran (pictured left), has welcomed the association with Accor.

“The contribution to the Greening Australia landscape restoration work is great and will make a huge difference on the ground, in addition the information provided to hotel guests around Australia about the program will help motivate people to become involved,” he said.
