LEADER Climate Action Accreditation

in Awards

Crystal Creek Meadows was the first accommodation provider in Australia to be assessed as Carbon Neutral by this accreditation scheme. While the attainment of achieving a high evaluation of our action on Greenhouse Gas Emissions is appreciated Crystal Creek Meadows does not make the claim of being carbon neutral. Supply chain and guest emissions are also critically important in determining a business' footprint. However, we do continue to implement a GHG reduction strategy, guest & community education programmes and keenly support this accreditation for its framework for action.
