Our Green Pledge

Cordis, Auckland has participated in the globally recognised EarthCheck programme for 12 consecutive years. We have been recognised with EarthCheck Platinum Certification, a TripAdvisor GreenLeader (Silver) award, and a NZ Qualmark EnviroGold rating. Each year, we confirm our green commitment by joining the global community in Earth Hour, turning off all non-essential lights to shine the light on climate change.

Best Practices

  • "Guests of the Earth" Programme offers a bed linen and towel reuse option for guests
  • CONNECT Conference offers sustainable meeting solutions and initiatives for event planners to help offset the environmental and social impact from events.
  • A rooftop beehive helps with the conservation of bees in urban areas, where they assist with pollination. Honey from the hive allows us to produce our own Cordis, Auckland honey for use in the hotel.
