Acknowledgment of Country And Sustainability

Nestled amidst the breathtaking natural beauty of our surroundings, we are committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Through the implementation of innovative green energy solutions and eco-friendly practices, such as utilizing solar power and water conservation measures, we strive to minimise our ecological footprint and preserve the pristine landscapes that surround us. In addition to our dedication to environmental sustainability, we also proudly acknowledge and honor the Indigenous peoples who have stewarded this land for generations.

Waste Management

Sunshine Coast Convention Centre has proudly implemented WasteMaster, a cutting-edge waste management solution, signaling our commitment to environmental sustainability. This initiative reflects our dedication to responsible investment, consistent with its ownership by The Shakespeare Property Group (SPG), a firm committed to sustainable practices across its portfolio. WasteMaster’s introduction addresses the hospitality industry’s food waste challenges, particularly crucial for establishments like restaurants and banquet facilities catering to diverse guest needs. The technology efficiently manages food waste while minimising environmental impact by diverting it from landfills and producing compost-like residual material. Our adoption of WasteMaster underscores our commitment to embracing innovative solutions that promote sustainability and environmental stewardship, setting a commendable example for the industry.

Water Conservation

At Sunshine Coast Convention Centre and Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort, we are committed to leading the way in environmental conservation and sustainable tourism practices. Through initiatives like the Conservation Credit, we demonstrate that luxury and sustainability can coexist harmoniously, setting a new standard for the hospitality industry.

Our initiative goes beyond traditional practices by empowering guests to actively participate in water and energy conservation efforts during their stay. By choosing to opt for fewer housekeeping services, guests not only contribute to environmental preservation but also enjoy rewards in the form of a $15 credit towards their food and beverage charges.

As part of our ongoing efforts to reduce plastic waste, we have implemented comprehensive measures to eliminate single-use plastics throughout the resort and convention centre. This includes the removal of plastic straws, the transition to eco-friendly room amenities, the use of biodegradable or reusable alternatives to plastic cutlery, and the adoption of sustainable takeaway packaging solutions. By prioritising the reduction of single-use plastics, we aim to minimise our environmental footprint and contribute to a cleaner, healthier planet. Our guests can rest assured that their stay and events at our resort and convention centre align with principles of sustainability and responsible tourism.
