Fairmont is committed to protecting the environment because it isn’t just something that’s “out there” – it’s the place where each of us lives, works and plays. Pioneered by the company’s Canadian properties in 1990, the award-winning Fairmont Green Partnership program is now growing across the United States and internationally. This comprehensive initiative to minimize the impact of hotel operations on the environment addresses key issues including waste management, water and energy conservation, habitat protection, purchasing, employee and guest education and community outreach. In addition to publishing “The Green Partnership Guide”, a “going green” handbook for the hospitality industry, individual Fairmont properties are innovating with food re-distribution and composting, tree-planting days, lighting retro-fits and a wide range of other everyday activities, special events and capital investments that protect their communities and the planet.
The Fairmont Empress in Victoria, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Banff, and the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa are just some of the iconic hotels that serve local organic and sustanably produced foods, growing pesticide-free rooftop gardens, and reducing and recyling water and electricity.
