HOTELS AND LODGING PROPERTIES
GS-33 establishes requirements for hotels and lodging properties. This standard does not include swimming pools, golf courses, or restaurants associated with the property. GS-33 has three levels under which a lodging property may apply for certification: bronze, silver and gold. Since it was first published in 1999, GS-33 has represented leadership in the industry. Key Evaluation Categories:
- waste minimization
- energy conservation and management
- management of fresh water resources and waste water management
- pollution prevention
- environmentally sensitive purchasing.
The standard also serves as a tool to help hotels and lodging properties consider practical steps for reducing the impacts of their operations.
