CARING FOR PEOPLE & PLANET

Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne On Spencer

A Sustainable Stay

Giving back to people and the planet is life’s greatest pleasure and at Mövenpick Melbourne, this wholesome ethos is at the core of our renowned sustainability programme. Read on to learn more about sustainable services and facilities available during your stay and help us keep tomorrow as delicious as today.

Single Use Plastics

Our hotel has removed single use plastics from your stay. This includes the removal of all plastic water bottles and the introduction of refillable bathroom amenities by YUNI Beauty. A complimentary refillable water station is available in the hotel lobby, with still and sparkling water available.

Serving Our Community

Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we work and live, the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong / Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin and pays respect to their Elders past and present.

  • Movenpick Melbourne is proud to support community initiatives including DV Collective's Silly Socks for a Safe House and collecting clothing donations for Diabetes Australia. Guests can get involved by purchasing a pair of Silly Socks during their stay, or dropping off a clothing donation at hotel Reception. Learn more.
  • The hotel is also a member of 'Your Yarra: Healthy, Protected and Loved'.  With over 70% of Melbourne's drinking water comes from the Yarra/Birrarung it is more important than ever that we protect this valuable natural resource. Run by the Yarra Riverkeeper Association (YRKA), the program is part of the international Waterkeeper Alliance, working closely with local communities, traditional owners, businesses and government at all levels to advocate for the health of the river.

Water & Energy

Assist us in reducing water and energy consumption by pressing your digital door display to “do not disturb” or by simply reusing your towels to help us make a positive impact on the world.

  • To reuse your towel, kindly place them back on the towel rack. 
  • Consider removing your room key card from the key power socket upon departing your room.  
  • Travelling by electric car? We offer an EV charging station. Please contact our Reception team for information. 
  • Did you know that your room features double glazed windows? This type of glass helps reduce heat loss or heat gain by almost 30% in comparison to single-glazed windows and helps our hotel be more energy efficient.

Food Waste

Our hotel partners with Waste Ninja to recycle food waste. Waste Ninja's EPA licensed organics recovery partners use proven technologies to recover valuable resources including 100% renewable energy and organic fertiliser, powering Aussie households and providing nutrients to local farmers.

Why Choose Sustainable Travel

Choosing to travel as sustainably as possible helps to reduce the negative impact caused on the environment and ecosystem of the places that you are visiting. While tourism helps create demand for jobs and boost the local economy, the environmental impact of tourism can be devastating if it is not properly managed. We thank our guests in supporting our unwavering commitment to minimising the ecological impact of each and every stay.
