“We are hugely proud to be partnering with Wyld Bikes, who share our mission to create a positive impact in working toward a more sustainable future,” said Dean Jones, vice president of commercial, IHG Australasia, Pacific and Japan.
“As we grow our Pacific footprint with these new voco Hotel openings, there’s no better time to add new, eco-conscious initiatives that meet our guests’ needs.”
To promote the initiative, Voco brand ambassadors are riding around Auckland on Wyld Bikes on Tuesday. People who spot them, take a photo and post it on social media with the right hashtags go into a draw to win prizes including free nights at the hotel.
Also as part of its sustainability initiatives, Voco Auckland City Centre is using ventilation air heat recovery as part of its HVAC system to reuse excess heat before it leaves the hotel, a system designed to maximise energy use efficiency and improve indoor air quality.
