GLRPPR Sector Resource: 2012 Case Study: 2012 Green Lodging Circuit Rider

Title:
2012 Case Study: 2012 Green Lodging Circuit Rider

Abstract:
Like other industries, lodging facilities are looking for ways to stay competitive while cutting costs and reducing their environmental footprint. Joyce Chen was hired as an intern through the green lodging intern program to provide hotels and other lodging facilities with a list of environmental projects that facilities could choose from. Facilities in the program were required to commit to adopting an environmental policy statement if they did not already have one so the green lodging intern drafted and provided five environmental policy statement samples. After each hotel determined what additional services were most important, a site visit was scheduled. Once all information pertaining to the hotel was gathered, conservation opportunities were researched and subsequently documented in individual facility reports.
