Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney Leads the Way with New Sustainable Initiatives

Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney is the first hotel in the city to introduce wooden key cards and Just Water into their club lounge and rooms, two game-changing sustainable initiatives.

"Shangri-La is an early adapter of emerging environmental initiatives that use more renewable resources and less paper, plastic and fossil fuels," said General Manager Philippe Kronberg. The wooden key cards will replace 52,000 plastic key cards that are thrown away each year; and the introduction of Just Water into hotels rooms will reduce the use of plastic bottles by 360,000 per year.

The wooden key cards are sourced from well-managed, plentiful, legally harvested and sustainable hardwood forests, with a grown-to-removal ratio of 2.4 to 1.

Made from wood and bamboo, the key cards incorporate an RFID chip, laser-engraved logo and instructions, and are lightweight and durable.

Just Water’s carton is 100 per cent recyclable, made with 82 per cent renewable packaging and plant-based plastic in the shoulder and cap made mostly from sugarcane, and 54 per cent paper from responsibly harvested trees that contribute to 74 per cent less harmful emissions, compared to standard plastic bottles. The cartons are filled with 100 per cent spring water with naturally occurring mineral and pH content from Cottonwood Springs, located at the base of Mount Warrenheip, Victoria.

"I am delighted to report our guest feedback is entirely positive, with guests already posting on social media about our two new environmental initiatives that support an ethically greener world," Kronberg said.

Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney has also introduced ORCA clean food waste recycling technology, which has diverted 39.73 tonnes of hotel food waste from landfill in the last six months, and avoided 34.96 tonnes of greenhouse gas, and 25.82 kg of methane gas. The hotel has initiated paperless check-in and check-out, and DocuSign to replace internal paperwork.
