Grace Macpherson's curator insight, July 27, 2013 10:56 PM

The intercontinential hotel Adelaide, has managed ahead of schedule to achieve their target of having 100% recycling of waste and zero landfill by the end of 2012. This major hotel re looked at their carbon print and made drastic measures to change it. It is now a leading 'green' hotle, wich hopefully will encourage more Hotels around Australia and the world to follow down this 'green' path.This is a perfect example to how a group of people, along with the SITA, are responding to waste problems. Waste management is major issue, and the Intercontinential is doing it's part to better manage their waste and set a good example.
