‘Mercure Mindful Meetings artfully combine health, wellbeing and sustainability into meeting packages with a purpose to deliver carbon neutral meetings. From whole-food menus to incorporating yoga into meeting breaks, to offsetting greenhouse gasses by funding renewable energy sources through the Carbon Reduction Institute, Mercure’s Mindful Meeting concept is the way of the future.’
– Charlotte Gutte, Director of Business Travel & MICE AccorHotels.
Mercure hotels are located in all major centres around Australia, with a range of conference facilities to suit all requirements. Our expertise means that your Mercure meeting will always be a complete success. Mercure Hotels offer quality 3.5-4 star accommodation to make your stay away from home as comfortable and convenient as possible.
Mercure is part of the Accor group, a European leader and major global player in travel, tourism and corporate services.
Mercure Hotels have engaged the Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) to consult on the group’s Carbon Neutral conferencing program launched in 2008 – ‘Mercure Meetings’. To enable Mercure Hotels to offset the emissions from their conferences, CRI provided the hotels with a conference calculator that takes into account emissions from energy usage such as heating, lighting and cooking; as well as food and stationery provided at the conferences.
Providing those calculators will give the Mercure Hotels a significant competitive edge over other, emissions intensive conference venue providers.
