Mercure Hotel Sydney

All Mercure Hotels follow the Accor Environmental Charter with 20 priority action points identified to reduce energy and water consumption and improve waste management and recycling. These 20 action points are adhered to by all Mercure Hotels. Mercure Meetings will be Carbon Neutral; Greenhouse gases produced during the meeting will be offset by funding efficient energy sources through the Carbon Reduction Institute. The funding of these offsets will be funded by the hotels and will not be passed on to our guests. Mercure conference guests also have the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions produced from their flights to and from the meeting through the Carbon Reduction Institute. Mercure Meetings will calculate the carbon offsets for each hotel by the use of a carbon calculator developed specifically for the Mercure Brand by the Carbon Reduction Institute.

Sydney Showground

The Sydney Showgrounds, home to Sydney's Royal Easter Show, provides another example of innovative environmental design. www.sydneyshowground.com.au Energy The design and orientation of the Sydney Showground maximises natural light and ventilation and is another example of integrated energy efficient technology. Where artificial lighting is required, carefully positioned energy efficient lights are used in combination with light sensors, photosensitive switches, luminaries and reflectors, greatly reducing energy consumption. Natural ventilation is the preferred mechanism for controlling the ambient air temperature inside the Pavilions and exhibition halls. Exhibition Halls (2, 3 and 4) are completely naturally ventilated via inlet louvres at the ground level, ventilation channels in the floor and outlets in the apex of the roof. All the exhibition halls have roof and wall insulation. Exhibition Hall 1 is the only hall to utilise air conditioning via a displacement system, which is designed to direct air only to the occupied zones (dramatically reducing the total volume of conditioned air). The use of these energy efficient technologies results in an estimated energy saving of approximately 20% reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by approximately 1750 tonnes per year Water Rooftop rainwater collection system Connected to Sydney Olympic Park Authority's recycled water system (WRAMS) for toilet flushing and irrigationStormwater management - pollution control devices Waste Waste recycling rates for  the Showground is...
