In recognition of the Chelsea Hotel's environmental initiatives, the Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) continues to award the Chelsea Hotel with a 4 Green Key ECOmmodation rating. This program is essentially a measurement and performance tool for improving our environmental performance. On October 23, 2012, the Chelsea Hotel announced the installation of an Electric Vehicle (EV) Recharging Station. This initiative promotes the adoption of sustainable transportation alternatives. The hotel partnered with Sun Country Highway, a Canadian owned company focused on creating Canada's electric vehicle infrastructure. For more information, visit www.suncountryhighway.ca. In February 2009, the Chelsea Hotel Hotel was recognized with the Hotel Association of Canada's Hall of Fame Award for Energy and Environment.
