Sustainability elements are integrated into our design and day-to-day operations to ensure our guests are enjoying our essential services in this sustainable living environment.

1. Public Area
  Green Wall in the lobby – the Nedlaw "Aspirated" proto type living wall draws contaminated air through the hydroponic wall by use of the Natural Convection air movement created by the stack pressure of the living wall. Pollutants are broken down by the beneficial microbes associated with the plants. Clean air is returned to the occupied space as forest fresh outdoor air. For more information, visit www.nedlaw.ca
  There is dimmable lighting and sensors in all banquet rooms and restaurants. Exterior lighting and signage are on timers. LED lighting is used in the lobby and CFL lighting in the meeting spaces.
  Over 60% of the boilers are high efficiency.
  The hotel is a 100% smoke-free environment
  There are no hazardous materials kept on the property. Only non-toxic cleaning chemicals are used.
  All four chillers were converted to ozone friendly refrigerant.
  We've eliminated paper guest receipts: Guests will be given the option to have electronic receipts e-mailed to them in place of paper. This should save around 3 million sheets of paper annually

2. Guestrooms
  Low-flow water saving showerheads and low flow toilets have been installed in most of the guestrooms.
  Guest of the Earth program - there is a re-use towel program and sheet change program in all guestrooms.
  CFL lighting in all guestrooms
  Recycling – in room recycling bins in all guestrooms
  We've phased out plastic water bottles from our guest rooms: We estimate that this change alone will result in a reduction of 4 million fewer bottles feeding into the waste stream annually.
  We've eliminated paper guest receipts at check-in and check-out: Guests will be given the option to have electronic receipts e-mailed to them in place of paper.
