The InterContinental Sydney is a centrally located hotel that is within walking distance to public transport and major tourist destinations eliminating the need for transfers and additional travel throughout the conference. Train stations are located under both the domestic and international airports in Sydney offering a direct route to the Circular Quay train station, conveniently located a 5 minute walk to the InterContinental Sydney. 

The InterContinental Sydney

Pledge to the Planet 
All InterContinental hotels now follow the Green Engage programme which outlines policies for all areas of sustainability, from waste management to energy efficiency. It’s a journey that has taken over 30 years of incorporating sustainability into hotel policies at every opportunity. In fact, the InterContinental Sydney was winner of the Green Hotelier Awards 2016 in Asia Pacific.

At the core of the InterContinental Sydney’s sustainability strategy is saving energy, water and waste. So far, the hotel has achieved nearly 50% savings on electricity, approximately 30% on gas and 30% on water.

The hotel has also taken Earth Hour one step further by implementing this yearly event, monthly, as a way to engage both staff and guests in climate action. The hotel also supports St Canice, a soup kitchen in Kings Cross that feeds over 200 homeless people on a daily basis. Through this initiative, they regularly supply homeless people with food, bed linen and amenities. Voluntary staff from the hotel have also worked with St Canice to renovate the church hall and refugee accommodation.
