At Quest, we believe we are only truly successful when the people around us and communities we operate in are thriving too. Quest has partnered with the Sony Foundation to launch You Can Stay - an initiative to support young Australians aged 15-25 diagnosed with cancer. As at June 2021, under You Can Stay, Quest has provided over 3,700 nights of accommodation. In 2019, Quest partnered with Housing All Australians - a private sector body which aims to provide secure accommodation for vulnerable people, such as victims of family violence and those displaced due to sudden financial hardship. Quest is currently assisting HAA to furnish residences for people in need.
The topic of Environmental Action calls us to consider how we can conduct business in an increasingly responsible manner to limit impact on the world’s natural resources and help safeguard the planet for future generations. For Quest, Environmental Action encompasses property infrastructure and design, water consumption, carbon emissions, procurement and wastage, as well as ongoing education for guests, hotel staff and corporate office. We believe it is our ethical obligation to take decisive environmental action, and to be able to look retrospectively on the decisions we make as a business today with pride in the years to come.
Quest is committed to fostering fair and inclusive places of accommodation and employment to reflect the diversity of our Australian communities. We believe that promoting diversity and inclusion throughout our business will help us reach our objectives, promote a positive culture, improve the guest experience, and most importantly contribute to making the world a better place.
