TFE Hotels blazes sustainability trail globally

In a world first, TFE Hotels has aligned its entire portfolio of nearly 70 hotels and resorts across Australia, New Zealand and Europe to the recently launched EarthCheck Evaluate program.

TFE Hotels owns and manages many properties both in Australia and abroad. In addition to running these businesses, the company constantly seek ways to contribute back to the communities it services. But measuring success in this field is not a straightforward process; TFE Hotel’s search for a global company who could quantify the results of its endeavours led the hotel group to EarthCheck, a credible, internationally respected brand.

"Having already certified and benchmarked more than 1,300 organisations in over 70 countries, EarthCheck is highly regarded for its science-based approach," explained Stewart Moore, CEO and Founder of EarthCheck.

"EarthCheck is an award winning organisation that has realised over $500 million in savings for our clients. There are no short cuts, no ways to buy your way in; it's a matter of being able to prove the integrity of an organisation's operational practices year-in and year-out, and then be willing to have everything verified by an experienced auditor. By taking a scientific approach to measuring the effectiveness of their sustainability practices, TFE Hotels will be able to identify where they are out-performing other operators and where room for improvement remains.
