(PRWEB) October 8, 2007
Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON One of only twelve properties in Canada to receive the designation, the White Oaks Conference Resort & Spa has received the prestigious Four Leaf rating from the Audubon Green Leaf™ Program. The Niagara-on-the-Lake hotel submitted a comprehensive, 52-page survey addressing various areas of environmental awareness and practices throughout the property, followed by an on-site audit by the Greenleaf team.
The Niagara resort is the first property to receive the Four Leaf ranking on their first attempt. According to Kathleen Robbins, Accounts Receivable Supervisor and Chair of the Environmental Team, "White Oaks Conference Resort & Spa is dedicated to preserving the environment and reducing our impact in any way we can. This is what our guests want and need, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this vitally important initiative."
White Oaks Conference Resort & Spa specializes in Niagara meetings at their renowned conference centre, as well as providing a luxury vacation destination for those exploring the Niagara wine region or seeking Niagara spa getaways. In addition to White Oaks's Four Leaf environmental rating, the Niagara resort is also Ontario's first five-star, four-diamond resort.
The comprehensive Audubon Green Leaf™ Program survey included extensive information about the Niagara-on-the-Lake hotel--from structural information to service-related principles. White Oaks was evaluated on purchasing, employee training, buy-in from senior management, maintenance, menus, grounds keeping, health & safety, guestrooms, energy/heating & cooling systems/hydro, conservation practices, laundry, recycling, guest awareness and involvement, and much more. Vittoria Wikston, Vice President Sales & Marketing claims, "you can be assured that White Oaks will do what White Oaks does - continue to improve on their efforts and strive with all their might for that fifth green leaf. We're all in this together; and there's still so much that can be done."
