Coast Hotels is the first brand to partner with Green Key Global in the 100% enrolled program, and today we share a snippet of Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre’s sustainability story.
As a brand, Coast Hotels is committed to sustainability by pioneering several initiatives, including:
- Refreshingly Green – Eco-friendly hotel practices that help protect properties’ surroundings by encouraging sustainability in various ways: recycling, composting, sourcing sustainable foods, using bio-degradable cleaning supplies, energy-efficient lighting and more.
- Coast Clean – Developed to ensure that a guest’s stay is safe, clean and comfortable from the moment you walk in until the time you depart. Coast Clean was developed in partnership with Ecolab and is based on the guidelines set by public health, government, and industry organizations.
Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre proudly takes part in these initiatives. They do their part in reducing single-use plastics by offering re-fillable amenities in guest rooms and ceramic mugs and washable glassware instead of single-use cups in guest rooms. They also allow their guests to skip housekeeping services for up to three nights to reduce water usage and cleaning supplies used. As a reward, they offer participating guests a coupon for their restaurant or a small gift from a locally sourced soap company.
Hotels can produce a lot of waste and have a high consumption of resources; it is the goal of Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre to reduce their environmental impact as much as possible.
Green Key Global spoke to Charmaine Elliott, Operations Manager of Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre, to share their Sustainability Snippet:
