Environmental Initiatives

Sustainability in the South

Scenic Hotel Dunedin City is gateway to the Otago region and some of the most exceptional wildlife and nature based experiences in New Zealand. From the world-renowned albatross colony to a rugged coastline with surf beaches, the ‘University City’ is rich in student culture and its Scottish settler heritage, a diversity celebrated and supported by Scenic Hotel Dunedin City.

As part of a proudly New Zealand owned and operated hotel group, Scenic Hotel Dunedin City is also committed to contributing to environmental practices and conservation causes through a range of hotel wide initiatives that include:

  • Waste recycling and waste reduction including food waste and cooking oil and an onsite double recycling bin stationed for guest use.
  • Energy conservation measures throughout the hotel
  • NZ made toiletries in recyclable cloth ‘take home’ bags
  • Supporting ‘NZ Made’
  • Sustainable suppliers programme
  • Guest linen reuse programme
  • Staff training in sustainable hospitality environments
  • Charitable support of Women’s Refuge by way of donated items
  • Tourism and hospitality student development though a mentoring programme with local tourism and hospitality training organisations.
  • Room voucher donations to assist Child Cancer fundraising activities
  • Charitable support from the sale of soft toys to benefit the Yellow-Eyed Penguin Trust together with in-room donation cards and information about saving the critically endangered Yellow-Eyed Penguin which lives and breeds in the Southern regions of New Zealand.

Scenic Hotel Dunedin City supports sustainable living and actively encourages guests to participate in simple but highly effective hotel initiatives to help keep New Zealand Green and uphold the hotel’s Qualmark Enviro Silver Award status. This Government initiative is New Zealand tourism’s official quality assurance programme and provides an operational benchmark for the tourism industry as well as guests.

As a guest of Scenic Hotel Dunedin City you will not only enjoy genuine Kiwi hospitality in the South but also make a difference to local communities, not for profit charities and the wider environment by simply staying the night.
