Howard Johnson Canada to go green in 2008

Howard Johnson Canada has decided to become more ecologically friendly by committing to have all Canadian properties complete the Hotel Association of Canada’s Green Key Eco-Rating program by September of 2008.

The Green Key Program uses an on-line audit system to rate a hotel’s environmental performance. Hotels then receive a Green Key rating of between 1 and 5. Howard Johnson Canada has set a target for all properties to achieve at least a 3 Key rating.

Howard Johnson Canada has already introduced brand-specific linen and towel conservation cards and has implemented mandatory recyclable stationary in all guest rooms.

“The importance of being eco-friendly in today’s society is astronomical,” stated Howard Johnson Canada President, Glen Blake. “The Green Key program is a great way for hotels to see how environmentally friendly they currently are, and allows them to identify where improvements can be made.”
