CTM introduces NABERS Hotel Ratings

CTM has partnered with NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) as the first and only* travel management company to display the efficiency rating of NABERS accredited hotels in an online booking tool (OBT).

This initiative allows users of CTM’s Lightning OBT to quickly and easily view which accommodation providers have been assessed for their environmental sustainability, and ultimately make more sustainable hotel choices that align with their climate neutrality objectives.

What is NABERS

NABERS, a national initiative managed by NSW Government DPIE, is a rating system that measures the environmental performance of Australian buildings, hotels, tenancies and homes.  NABERS assesses the energy efficiency, water usage, waste management and indoor environment quality of a building or tenancy and its impact on the environment, and provides a ‘star’ rating according to the efficiency of the property compared with industry benchmarks (1 – lowest to 6 – highest).

There are currently approximately 1,760 buildings* in Australia that have NABERS ratings.

NABERS and Lightning

CTM worked in collaboration with the City of Sydney and NABERS to develop a visual indication of a properties’ NABERS star rating within the Lightning OBT booking process. If a property has been accredited by NABERS, their energy or water efficiency rating will clearly display on the hotel’s search result in Lightning. See screenshots below.

CTM customers using Lightning already have access to see NABERS rated properties.

If you’re not currently a CTM customer, or do not have access to our Lightning OBT, contact our team for a demo.

Why NABERS ratings matter

Environmental sustainability is becoming increasingly important to individuals and businesses that want to measure their carbon footprint and meet their climate neutrality goals. NABERS ratings help businesses to choose office buildings and accommodation providers that can assist in reaching these goals.

CTM’s climate initiatives

CTM is dedicated to reducing its own carbon footprint, as well as that of our customers.

CTM has partnered with South Pole to develop the CTM Climate+ program, enabling our customers to reduce the environmental impact of their travel program.

Climate+ enables customers to better understand the environmental impact of their travel program through a powerful reporting dashboard, as well as the opportunity to offset their programs’ carbon footprint by supporting a range of sustainability initiatives around the world. Learn more.

Additionally, through our partnership with South Pole, CTM is enabled to offset its employee travel against a range of global initiatives.
