Hotel Sustainability Programs

Healthy Buildings has a proven track record for achieving hotel sustainability program certifications and implementing hotel sustainability programs. Our strategic certification approach facilitates a streamlined process without burdening key employees or demanding too much time out of their daily responsibilities. We provide easy to use templates to document existing practices and metrics and our team handles the documentation process.

Just wanted to let you know that your office just helped us out with a last minute need…and we wanted to express our sincere gratitude. Your staff dropped what they were doing and came here to perform a Legionella test of our cooling tower before our work started this weekend. We are so fortunate to have such a great partnership with Healthy Buildings, who is responsive to our needs!

Just wanted to express my sincere thanks for your time and assistance in attending the meeting. We met with a certified Industrial Hygienist and the Director of Environmental, Health and Safety. At the meeting, your staff distributed copies of the actual sampling data findings and explained each test and the results. The director asked a few questions and at the end of the meeting he seemed satisfied with the results and expressed his gratitude and stated that he felt that HBI had done a thorough job.
