Four Accor hotels in Queensland have been Sustainable Tourism Certified by Ecotourism Australia after demonstrating a commitment to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.

The certified hotels include Sofitel Brisbane Central, ibis Styles Brisbane Elizabeth Street, Novotel Brisbane South Bank, and Pullman & Mercure Brisbane King George Square.

“Sustainability is redefining our business model and we are proud to lead the industry forward by investing in our sustainability actions and activities in the region,” said Sarah Derry, CEO of Accor Pacific.
