Green Communities

Green Seal works with city governments, chambers of commerce and convention and visitors bureaus, as well as businesses to help put in place greener practices. Through our Green Hotels and Green Cleaning Services certification programs and our technical assistance for purchasers and facilities, we’ve helped realize major reductions in many communities' environmental impacts. Here are a few examples of that work.

Los Angeles Green Lodging Program

Green Seal is excited to be working with LA INC., The Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau, to implement a Green Lodging Program for the Los Angeles area. The LA Green Lodging Program is based on certification of area hotels to Green Seal’s GS-33 Environmental Leadership Standard for Lodging Properties. The Program is an important element of LA’s new green business initiative in the City’s ambitious "Green LA" plan.Click here to learn more about this initiative.

Chicago Green Hotels Initiative 

Chicago has implemented their Green Hotels Initiative which challenges hotels to obtain Green Seal certification. As part of this initiative 25 hotels were audited and five were initially certified. The number quickly increased and Chicago now leads the country with the most Green Seal certified hotels. Click here to visit the Choose Chicago website and learn more.
