Corporate Responsibility

In recognition of InterContinental Adelaide’s commitment to sustainable energy and zero-waste solutions, the hotel has been awarded the 2012 Environmental Practice Award in the AHA Hotel Industry Awards for Excellence.

InterContinental Adelaide has achieved a remarkable “Zero Landfill” standing, recycling 100% of its waste with no refuse going to landfills.

The hotel has surpassed all targets set by IHG® as part of its Corporate Responsibility Program.

One of Australia’s leading waste management companies, SITA, has been responsible for delivering InterContinental Adelaide a, “source separation resource recovery platform” that enables the hotel to separate its organic waste and recyclable materials from the general waste stream.
