The City Centre Motor Inn, located in the heart of the New England High Country, has recently become the first accommodation provider in Australia to be fully certified Carbon Neutral under the National Carbon Offset Standard.

Becoming Carbon Neutral followed an intense assessment & offsetting of the organisation’s carbon emissions, and is only one part of their ever-growing Environmental Program. Find out what the City Centre Motor Inn’s emission reducing strategies are here.

So far the City Centre Motor Inn have been recognised on a local level where they took out the first prize for Excellence in Sustainability at the 2019 Armidale Business Chamber awards.

They have also been recognised on a national level for their Environmental Program where they are in the finals for the 2019 HM Awards – Major Awards – Environmental Program, to be announced early September.

Locally the team at the City Centre Motor Inn are working alongside the University of New England, the Armidale Regional Council and One Giant Leap Australia to create awareness around sustainability at their two week STEAM Dreaming event.

The event will include a symposium held by the City Centre Motor Inn on Carbon Neutrality, however will just be one event in a long line of science and arts related activities held during the fortnight. For more information on STEAM Dreaming, check out the Facebook page.
