Help us keep New Zealand beautiful
Waldorf Apartments New Zealand are committed to green hotel policies and are focussed on an ongoing vision of minimising environmental impact. We are constantly re-evaluating operational and guest behaviours in consideration of energy efficiency and resource usage to make green choices that benefit the environment, without sacrificing our guests’ experience.
Recycling waste – Guest waste is separated and recycled.
Sensor lighting in hallways – Automatically switch on when guest enters hallway from Apartment or elevator.
Guest accountability – In-apartment materials remind guests of their ability to help us protect the environment: Switching off lights, appliances and a/c prior to leaving apartment for the day and re-using bathroom towels.
Housekeeping – Eco-friendly cleaning products dispensed into re-usable containers on-site to avoid creating waste. Twice weekly housekeeping service saves significant resource usage over daily services.
Laundry – All linen and clothing is laundered by Ecolab using water and energy saving technology. Low pH used also extends linen life.
Local economy – We support local businesses where possible to support New Zealand’s economy.
Papers and Inks – Eco-friendly vegetable based inks and recyclable papers used for in-house and external print materials.
Energy savings – Energy efficient LED and CFL light bulbs are used throughout the building, replacing broken bulbs as necessary. Individually controlled A/C units in apartments greatly reduce energy usage by only cooling or heating necessary spaces. Solar reflective double glazed windows and fully insulated building reduces need for cooling and heating apartments significantly.
Water savings – Dual flush toilets installed throughout building. Dish draw dishwashers for efficient dish washing. Water restrictors installed on taps and showers.
