Sustainable Hotel in Newcastle City Centre
EVERY ACTION COUNTS
Discover sustainability at Crowne Plaza Newcastle, proudly part of IHG. Committed to eco-conscious practices, we prioritize waste reduction, energy efficiency, and responsible sourcing. From eco-friendly amenities to energy-efficient lighting, every stay with us embodies a commitment to both luxury and environmental stewardship. Join us in creating a greener tomorrow.
At Crowne Plaza Newcastle, we use an online sustainability management tool, the IHG Green Engage™ system, to measure and minimise our impact on the local environment. It’s the IHG way of ensuring that our surroundings are preserved for everyone to enjoy.
Sustainable Meeting and Events Centre
Our Meetings and Events Team is proud to contribute to IHG’s sustainability initiatives, ensuring that every gathering is not only memorable but also environmentally conscious. To reduce single-use plastic, we’ve placed water coolers in corridors, promoting easy access to refreshing hydration without the need for disposable bottles. In our commitment to waste reduction, pens and notepads are available upon request, minimizing unnecessary usage.
At hotel reception, digital screens provide real-time information, reducing paper waste. For efficient and paperless show rounds, we utilize iPads, offering a seamless and eco-friendly experience. Our transition to digital brochures further minimizes our ecological footprint. At Crowne Plaza, we believe in creating impactful events that align with IHG’s sustainability goals, ensuring a positive impact on both your experience and the planet.
