Introducing The EcoStay Certified Program. Helping Chateau Granville To Stay Green.
Here at Chateau Granville Vancouver, we are proud to be a green hotel. So, what makes Chateau Granville green? Introducing The EcoStay Certified Program. This helps us to invest in energy saving, emission reducing and overall green initiatives. The EcoStay Certified Program has been awarded to us since 2013, which helps us to take further responsibility for staying green.
Carbon Offsetting is the counteracting of carbon dioxide emissions, with an equivalent reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. To learn more about carbon offsetting, this might be an interesting read.
As a hotel, we actively involve ourselves in The EcoStay Certified program. This is a program which helps to provide accountability and support to their members in their efforts to stay green. They do this by addressing the needs of hospitality sustainability. They have strategically aligned the program with several industry associations and organizations, including the Alberta Hotel & Lodging Association, Green Key Global, Best Western Hotels and Greenview Hospitality Pte Ltd.
As well as our own endeavors as a hotel, in a conscious effort to stay green, we invite our guests to join our initiatives. We do this by asking guests to unplug and switch off light switches where possible. Our long-term guests can request that their towels and linen be changed less frequently, rather than on a daily basis. Our team have also installed motion sensor thermostats in each room to avoid energy wastage. We find our guests very receptive of these efforts. As a result, we appreciate their support in maintaining our commitment to the environment. See more about our green ventures on our website.
The EcoStay Website states: “Our purpose is to offer a way of doing business that puts back more into society, the environment and the bottom line than it takes out.” See more about their Certified Program here.
Together with EcoStay, we want to fulfill our commitment to contributing to the sustainability of the planet by reducing our carbon footprint.
