The Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside recently announced that it has received a 4 Green Key™ Rating from the Hotel Association of Canada (HAC). This rating certifies notable eco-friendly initiatives undertaken by various hotels.

The HAC Green Key Eco-Rating Program is unique in that it is administered entirely on-line. The audit consists of five sections: Corporate Environmental Management, Housekeeping, Food & Beverage Operations, Conference & Meeting Facilities and Engineering. The 4 Green Key Rating denotes a hotel that has shown national industry leadership and commitment to protecting the environment through wide ranging policies and practices. The downtown Vancouver, Canada hotel received a four out of five Green Key™ rating.

The Vancouver hotel's environmental initiatives began in 1998 with a group of employees who formed the Renaissance Environmental Committee. They originally aimed to implement a more effective recycling program, but ended up redefining their goals to include all aspects of operating a sustainable business. Currently, the hotel has environmental programs for: waste reduction and recycling; energy reduction and efficiency; water conservation; sustainable purchasing; and air quality.

The Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside is also involved in Marriott International's companywide program known as ECHO — Environmentally Conscious Hospitality Operations.
