Launceston hotel rewarded for sustainability efforts

Tasmania heavily promotes its clean, green image, even if there are a lot of old growth trees being chopped down out of the view of most tourists, and the local farmed salmon industry is problematic.

That said, there are lot of tourism operators doing their best to be sustainable and protect the environment.

Peppers Silo Hotel Launceston has met globally recognised sustainable tourism standards to become the first hotel in Tasmania to achieve Ecotourism Australia's Sustainable Tourism Certification.

The Accor hotel has been recognised for its sustainability measures across accommodationl, Grain of the Silos restaurant, and its meetings and events offering.

The independent validation confirms Peppers Silo Hotel Launceston has met international best practice sustainable tourism standards across eight criteria sections, including environmental management, interpretation and education, working with local communities, and cultural respect and sensitivity.

"The hotel team has worked diligently to improve their sustainability initiatives across the entire property," said Peppers Silo Hotel Launceston GM Paul Seaman.

Tthey were proud to announce their certification achievement and acknowledge the support of the hotel's owner in supporting key initiatives, such as solar panels and local procurement."

Grain of the Silo food director Massimo Mele said being fiercely local and creating connections with producers was a critical part of the restaurant's offering and identity from day one.

“Our processes and connections with local farmers and growers takes courage and planning to match the expectations of diners and travellers with the seasons and sustainable farming,” he said.
