Kimpton Gets Tri­pAd­vi­sor GreenLead­ers Pro­gram Nod

Tri­pAd­vi­sor GreenLead­ers Pro­gram has rec­og­nized all 65 Kimpton Ho­tels and Restau­rants for their lead­er­ship in en­vi­ron­men­tal prac­tices. Kimpton is the first ho­tel brand to reach port­fo­lio-wide par­tic­i­pa­tion.

The Tri­pAd­vi­sor GreenLead­ers Pro­gram was de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with all of the key play­ers in the eco-world: US En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency’s ENERGY STAR pro­gram, the US Green Build­ing Coun­cil, and the United Na­tions En­vi­ron­ment Pro­gramme. The pro­gram helps trav­el­ers find and plan stays with eco-friendly ho­tels.

“Ever since we opened our first ho­tels in the early‘80s, when‘go­ing green’cer­tainly wasn’t the norm, we’ve been keenly aware of how our daily prac­tices im­prove both the guest ex­pe­ri­ence and min­i­mize our en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact,” says Kimpton chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Mike DeFrino.“We’re hon­ored to be the first ho­tel group to have 100 per­cent brand com­pli­ance.”

The seats also in­clude an ad­justable head­rest and in­creased legroom, as well as more per­sonal stowage, while de­creas­ing the over­all weight of the prod­uct.
