Book A Green Hotel
Wyndham Hotel Group is committed to improving the health and sustainability of our planet with “green” – or eco-friendly – hotels and resorts. In fact, Wyndham Worldwide, our parent company, has received numerous accolades acknowledging this commitment – placing us among the top 100 greenest companies in the United States, according to Newsweek magazine.
It takes time to earn a green designation, but we are expanding our positive green global impact every day. You can search for and book Wyndham Hotel Group eco-friendly hotels online.
Partnering With Recognized Eco-Certification Groups
When we say “green” or “green certified” hotels, what do we mean? We mean that one or more third party certifications have been obtained by a property, designating it eco-friendly. For instance:
- Green Key Global offers an eco-rating program that recognizes hotels and resorts committed to improving environmental and fiscal performance
- Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, verifying that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, indoor air quality and stewardship of resources
- EarthCheck is also an internationally recognized certification program – it helps hotels and resorts manage costs, risk and compliance through reporting
Individual states and countries provide green certification programs. For a complete list of state-level green certification programs, visit the American Hotel & Lodging Association website.
At the individual property management level, Wyndham strives to meet benchmarks set by these local, global and national ecological organizations. As of 2011, Wyndham Worldwide had amassed over 375 sites worldwide, which have received certifications like these and more. Visit Wyndham Worldwide online for more information.
