Holiday Inn Express Newcastle achieved finalist status for the Green Hotel of the Year Award by Finder Green Awards, announced on 2 June 2021. As a hotel developer, owner and operator, Pro-invest Group has the ability to challenge conventional thinking, benefitting from the ability to adapt to change, try new things and build its hotels to high sustainability standards. We are delighted that this is being recognised by initiatives such as the Finder Green Awards.
Since opening in March 2019, Holiday Inn Express Newcastle has consistently achieved sustainability “highs”, including holding a 5-star NABERS Energy & Water rating. The hotel features many sustainability features & initiatives, including Interface carbon neutral carpets which alone translates into 35 metric tons of carbon dioxide being retired.
Together with Pro-invest Group’s other IHG hotels, Holiday Inn Express Newcastle also champions IHG’s A Greener Stay initiative that enables guests to opt out of housekeeping services if they stay 2 or more nights. This allows them to make a positive contribution to the environment through saving energy and water, amongst reducing wastage and limiting labour costs.
We look forward to seeing the Holiday Inn Express Newcastle hotel and its team enjoy many more sustainability successes as the hotel continues to go adopt further sustainability initiatives.
