No more land fill contributions, which take years to decompose. No more CO2 generation in trips to the land fills. CO2 reduction. All done on site. Creates added value and significance to our “Pure Room” allergenic guest room Program.
Reduced gas energy usage (therms) by replacing gas heated hot water in the dishwashing cycle to lower temperature water, achieving same end result. Utilities companies grant incentives for energy conservation applications.
The system processes 1200lbs of food waste using micro organisms, in a 24 hour period to water which is then through the sewer system retuned to the water supply system after filtration. Has eliminated 6.5 tons of food waste monthly being hauled off the site to the land fills reducing costs and creating enhanced on site sorting of recycling by employees.
Throughout the hotel premises we have containers grouped together which identify cans, plastics, glass, paper and trash. Each floor at the elevator foyer has containers which enable housekeeping to deposit appropriately from guest room accumulations. It offers convenience and encourages guests to participate. We are experiencing excellent results.
Vacant rooms can be shut down and reactivated at check in when a room key is made. Ballrooms are activated at appropriate times for events which eliminates “phantom energy loss” in unused space saving huge dollar costs and saves huge energy demands. The system is very state of the art operating from an advanced cloud system.
Newly installed low flush toilets in Guest rooms and public restrooms went from 3.1 gallons per flush to 1.6 gal per flush. We received an incentive payment from a utility company that reimbursed the property for the cost of the toilets because our sustainability initiative would save 390,000 gallons of water use demand annually.
As part of the energy reduction at the property we reduced energy demand from our LED Lighting program throughout the guest rooms and public spaces.
The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer is the fastest hand dryer – cleaning the air before blowing it onto hands, so it’s hygienic too. It also uses up to 80% less energy than warm air hand dryers. It’s more cost efficient than paper towels and creates less waste that ends up in landfill.
Committed to providing guests with an exceptional experience and meeting sustainable principles., Hilton Concord is proud to introduce a paperless check-in and check-out system. With implementation of this technology, the hotel is expecting to raise the bar in the efficiency of our associates, in order to focus on better guest service.
Solar film conserves energy as it reflects thermal energy and a percentage of UV rays back outdoors. Solar window treatments reflect UV rays, which play a big part in fading carpet and furniture fabric. Reduced energy costs through lighting, air-conditioning and other appliances, lower energy demands.
With our drip irrigation system, we use water efficiently and lose little water to runoff, deep percolation, or evaporation. Irrigation scheduling is managed precisely to reduces water contact with crop leaves, stems, and fruit.
The Natura water purification system significantly reduces contaminants including heavy metals, pesticides and chemical impurities such as mercury, lead and arsenic. We no longer need to purchase, store, or refrigerate bottled water, which helps protect the environment and our bottom line.
Our sustainable procurement works not on a cost- benefit analysis, but with a view to maximizing sustainability with a preference for eco-friendly products.
