Project Information and Updates

Green Seal is proposing a revision to GS-33 to eliminate the requirement that hotels or lodging properties certified at the Bronze level move to Silver within three years. The proposed revision would allow Bronze-certified hotels or lodging properties to maintain that certification level indefinitely (as long as they continue to meet Bronze-level requirements).
