San Francisco Green Hotel - California Green Building Program
At our eco-friendly San Francisco, California hotel, we're taking concrete steps to make the planet a better place. We have set hard targets for our San Francisco hotel's green program, and we are working every day to achieve them. By 2014, we are committed to reducing our energy consumption and CO2 output by 20%, reducing our waste output by 20% and saving 10% more water.
San Francisco California Green Hotel Initiative
This green program reaches across our San Francisco hotel, from recycling and energy-efficient bulbs to reducing waste by donating excess food to worthy charities. We are committed to doing our part, and we are proud to be able to provide our guests with both the highest level of service and a green hotel program guests can feel good about. Here's a look at our San Francisco, California hotel's green program in action.
Reduce waste with a hotel-wide recycling program.
Flat-screen HDTVs that use less energy.
Save energy with compact fluorescent bulbs in all guest rooms and public spaces, which use 70% less energy than conventional light bulbs.
LED exit lighting signs use the lowest amount of energy of available light source.
To save electricity, limits are placed the time of day when the kitchen oven and hoods are used.
New energy efficient kitchen equipment was installed in 2006.
Low-flow aeration shower heads and sink faucets in guest rooms reduce the amount of water output without sacrificing water pressure.
