Mill Valley, California (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
Auberge Resorts has announced environmentally focused offerings at each of its luxury resorts across North America that will encourage guests to share in the company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability. Each property is introducing a new collection of “Earth Month” guest experiences kicking off during Earth Hour on March 23 and available throughout the month of April.
“Environmental preservation is intrinsic to the Auberge Resorts brand; our mission is to preserve the essence of place in each resort location and allow our guests to experience that cultural and environmental connection at each destination,” said Mark Harmon, CEO, Auberge Resorts. “We’ve created a variety of unique ways to showcase this commitment to our guests, who appreciate our continued concentration on sustainability.”
Each resort will recognize Earth Hour on March 23, 2013, and support the world’s largest environmental event in history between 8:30-9:30 p.m., where millions of people will turn off the lights within their time zone for Earth Hour in observance of the effects of climate change. Auberge Resorts will set the mood with candlelight massages, candlelight happy hours and fireside turndown experiences, in addition to other unique programming lit solely by flickering candles and the stars above.
A sampling of additional April Earth Month activities at each Auberge resort includes:
All properties are required to track their energy consumption, waste, and water consumption and submit standardized reports in the middle and at the end of each year. Auberge Resorts has implemented a Planet Auberge Report Card that includes the categories described above, in addition to property audits, creative initiatives and execution of the minimum standards (of which there are more than 50) that are agreed up on each year. The Green Spa Network awarded the company’s efforts this year with the “Corporate Sustainability Leadership Award”.
