What is a Green Hotel Six Things No Green Hotel Should be Without

It seems as if you cant turn around anymore without running into something “green.” Nowhere is that more true than in lodging. Green hotels or at least, those calling themselves green are sprouting up everywhere, and travelers are becoming increasingly more aware of what to look for and how to judge whether or not a green hotel actually is well, green!

You want your guests to know without a doubt that theres no green-washing happening at your green hotel. Ive put together a green hotel checklist so you can see how your property stacks up. Does your property have:

Staff Buy-In and Ongoing Education: In a truly green hotel, everyone from the front desk staff to the owner and everyone in between fully understands, supports, practices and can communicate the propertys environmental policies.

A Working (and funded!) Energy Strategy: Todays green hotels go beyond just changing a few light bulbs and implementing a linen reuse policy. They analyze their energy efficiency including conducting Energy Star benchmarking — and then seek out and apply for incentives, rebates and loans that allow them to make meaningful changes in their consumption.

A Green Purchasing Plan: From locally-grown organic produce for its banquet salads to environmentally sensitive cleaning products and furnishings, green hotels know where and how to source the most cost-effective earth-friendly products.

Green Hotel Certification: A green hotel designation from a certifying body that does on-site audits assures your guests that your property has met rigorous environmental standards.

Specialized Marketing: Green hotels recognize that expertly targeted internet marketing is vital to their ongoing success in an increasingly competitive industry.

So how does your property stack up? I know it seems daunting to meet all those requirements, to track down trustworthy, LEED-Accredited Professional advisors, find rebates and incentives, train everybody, and still manage to run a lodging facility who has time for that?

Thats why I created EcoGreenHotel to be a one-stop shop. We have trainers, engineers, financial advisors, purchasing and marketing specialists, thousands of quality green products and a certification program to meet the needs of every type and size of lodging facility at all stages in the green hotel process. We are LEED-Accredited Professionals specializing in energy efficiency. We can help your property achieve all of the above in the most cost-effective way possible, and we can start today.

About EcoGreenHotel EcoGreenHotel is a company dedicated to helping lodging facilities address energy and environmental solutions.

Mokapu and Ulua Beach has been a popular setting for romantic beach weddings for many years and the new resort is expected to attract many couples planning on getting married abroad in Hawaii in the near future.
