Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) September 26, 2008
The Calgary Marriott Hotel is pleased to announce that it has achieved a 4 Green Key rating through the Hotel Association of Canada's (HAC) Green Key Eco-Rating Program.
A 4 Green Key rating demonstrates that the Calgary Marriott Hotel has shown national industry leadership and commitment to protecting the environment through wide ranging policies and practices. The hotel also has environmental awareness programs in place that involve management, employees, guests, and the public, all of which have shown substantial and measurable results.
The Calgary Marriott Hotel achieved this green hotel rating through various initiatives including: the purchase of green power which now powers the main lobby and meeting space, expanding the hotel's recycling program to include colored glass, clear glass, tins, plastics, fluorescent tubes, and composting both food and ground wastes.
"This accomplishment is the result of the commitment every associate has towards improving our Green policies and initiatives," says Joseph Clohessy, General Manager of the Hotel. "I am extremely proud of our team in achieving a 4 Green Key Rating."
Future green initiatives for this Calgary hotel include using 100% energy efficient lighting throughout the entire hotel, aiming for zero waste from hotel functions, and purchasing two additional high efficiency boilers.
