As part of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ national pursuit to achieve collection-wide Green Seal Certification, Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Denver has achieved Denver’s first Silver Green Seal Certification. It is only the third hotel in Colorado to have achieved this certification; Kimpton’s Sky Hotel in Aspen received its certification in May.
Green Seal certification is a third-party validation of the Hotel Monaco’s more than 80 environmentally responsible operational practices under the company’s EarthCare program and allows the Hotel Monaco Denver to more effectively measure its reductions in waste, energy and water consumption. To qualify for GS-33 Green Seal certification, a hotel must demonstrate sustainable practices in waste minimization, reuse and recycling; energy efficiency, conservation and management; management of fresh water resources; waste water management; hazardous substances; and environmentally sensitive purchasing.
“We congratulate the Hotel Monaco Denver on committing to such an ambitious goal,” said Greenprint Denver executive director Michele Weingarden. “Their commitment as a company and individually as employees demonstrates how the Hotel Monaco Denver is truly a leader in the city’s lodging community.”
