The Florida Green Lodging Program has recognized The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club with its coveted “Three Palm Rating” due to the Hotel’s many environmental initiatives and its commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources. A voluntary initiative of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection(DEP), the Florida Green Lodging Program requires participating hotels and resorts to submit environmental data (water, waste, energy) annually and to implement at least two new environmental practices from any of the five areas of sustainable operations. The latter consists of waste reduction: reuse and recycling; water conservation: energy efficiency; indoor air quality; and communication and education (customers, employees, and the public). The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club has long been a member of the Florida Green Lodging Program, which requires hotels and resorts to submit renewal applications to maintain designation, which is valid for three years. A certificate recognizing the designation will be presented to Jason Parsons, General Manager of the AAA Four-Diamond beachfront resort.
Among the Hotel’s many initiatives are: a comprehensive recycling program(both in-room and throughout the resort); high energy-efficient lighting; the use of ‘Green Sealed’ cleaning products and detergents; the use of organically-based fertilizers, nutrients, and pesticides on the golf course; a saline purification process for the pool complex; a computerized energy management system for air-conditioning in all public areas; low flow fixtures and auto-flush systems throughout the resort: and a towel and linen reuse program in guest rooms.
“We are very proud of our many environmental initiatives, and very pleased the Resort is recognized with this fine distinction,’ said Parsons.
