The question is no longer "Should we go green?", but rather, "How green should we go?" Over our 30-year history, North Central Group has been on the forefront of green technologies. From white roofs, to energy management systems, to low-flow water fixtures, we have researched and implemented numerous green initiatives across our portfolio of hotels.
In January of 2009, North Central Group formally established The Green Team, bringing the sustainable efforts of our development and management companies together into a cohesive unit.
The mission of The Green Team is to create a sustainable environment throughout our portfolio of hotels while adding value for our team members, guests and investors.
As we strive to carry out this mission, several initiatives remain on our radar, each at various stages of research and implementation. Many green resources have been helpful to us on our sustainable journey. Feel free to check them out for yourself.
Our most recent initiative is with the iStay Green Eco-leaf ratings. The Green Eco-leaf ratings include staff education, recycling, philanthropic efforts, and other environmental projects. North Central Group hotels received these Green Eco-leaf ratings based on utilizing energy efficient lighting, water conservation, environmentally friendly chemicals and detergents and much more. Our hotels are proud to utilize these environmentally friendly policies and will continue to look for even more energy efficiencies in the future.
Our Middleton hotels are Travel Green Wisconsin certified. Travel Green Wisconsin is a voluntary program that reviews, certifies, and recognizes tourism businesses that have made a commitment to continuously improve their operations in order to reduce their environment impact. This program allows us to evaluate our operations, set goals, and take specific actions towards environmental, social, and economic sustainability. We want to give you the peace of mind and satisfaction that you are doing the right thing by protecting and preserving Wisconsin's natural resources when you stay in our hotels.
