Hotel Monteleone Receives Green Key Award
Award Announced as Part of Earth Day Celebration

New Orleans, LA (April 22, 2011) – At an Earth Day press conference today featuring Louisiana’s Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne, the Hotel Monteleone formally announced its receipt of the Green Key Hotel Award for accomplishments in environmental management and corporate social responsibility after participating in the Green Key Eco-Rating Program.

The Green Key Eco-Rating Program and Green Key Meetings Program recognize hotels, motels and resorts that are actively and continuously improving their environmental and fiscal performance.

“Hotel Monteleone is one of many hotels in New Orleans striving to make the city and state of Louisiana a top destination for green travel and meetings,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing for Hotel Monteleone. “By achieving the Green Key Award, we hope to set the example for green leadership in our market.”

The Hotel Monteleone continues its commitment to maintaining and implementing environmental programs that identify and execute best management practices and training programs to benefit the environment and the Greater New Orleans community. The Hotel’s Green Committee, composed of upper management and employees from various departments, meets regularly to evaluate its operations and discuss areas for eco-friendly changes. The Hotel earned a notably high score for Corporate Environmental Management for its communication practices to internal staff, guests and the greater public about its environmental initiatives.

Historic properties must overcome obstacles to achieve green operations, such as renovating outdated structures and overhauling systems while preserving the historic integrity of the building. The preservation of a historic property is the greenest act that people can do. Hotel Monteleone is mixing its historic architecture with contemporary, energy-efficient systems to create a sustainable fusion of old and new.

Green practices have been implemented across the Hotel’s departments including housekeeping, meeting and guestroom services, and food and beverage. Some examples of eco-friendly practices include installing energy-efficient lighting around the Hotel and digital thermostats in guestrooms, using soy ink cards and eco-friendly cleaning supplies and donating unused, leftover food to non-profit programs. Additionally, Hotel Monteleone is a participant in the Clean the World sustainability program. Clean the World is a bottled amenity recycling program that donates discarded soap and shampoo amenities to impoverished people to help prevent hygiene-related illnesses.

“As Hotel Monteleone celebrates its 125th anniversary this year, it is ever more apparent that we as a business must adopt sustainable practices to benefit the Hotel for years to come,” continued Thornton. “We are reevaluating the way we do business to help preserve the environment for another 125 years of the Hotel’s operation.”

In addition to implementing more energy-efficient operations, the Hotel Monteleone rallied together on Earth Day with several environmental organizations to encourage local businesses to join the green movement. The event was a part of the Hotel’s external campaign for its 125th anniversary to raise awareness of the fragile nature of Louisiana’s environment and provide opportunities for the community to commit to greener lifestyles.
