Resort and Convention Center Awarded Green Lodging Certification

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) awarded the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort + Convention Center "Green Lodging" certification, making it one of only 159 properties to be designated in the state. Florida's Green Lodging Program establishes guidelines for hotels and other tourist destinations seeking green status, which encompasses water and energy conservation to name a few. "Adopting effective eco-practices is a winning combination for everyone," stated Tim Pyne, director of sales and marketing at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort & Convention Center. "Collectively our guests, meeting planners and staff are all participants in making a positive difference to preserve the environment while saving resources and money."

To become a designated member of the Florida Green Lodging Program, hotels must implement a variety of green practices. These practices include, but are not limited to, water conservation measures through low flow plumbing fixtures and a linen reuse program, and energy efficiency achieved by installing ENERGY STAR® appliances and programmable thermostats. The waste reduction criteria are met by providing the opportunity to recycle, purchasing items in bulk, purchasing recycled materials and by recycling ink and toner cartridges. All designated members of the Florida Green Lodging Program must also use green cleaners and high efficiency air filters, and clean air handler units frequently.
