GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Hotel Pilot Project Final Report
Green Hotel Pilot Project Final Report
In the spring of 2009 and in conjunction with the New York State Governor's Green Hospitality & Tourism Partnership (the Partnership), NYS Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) initiated a pilot test of a green certification program for the NYS hotel industry, using the Audubon International Green Leaf Eco-Rating Program as the third party certifier. To this end, the "Green Hotel Pilot Project" was created. The project's goal was to test a program aimed at assisting lodging properties in reducing their environmental footprint and improving their competiveness while saving operating costs and increasing revenue by attracting environmentally conscious tourists. In addition to the participants demonstrating the certification process, they would increase the population of green certified hotels and be featured in green tourism marketing.
