Arizona Biltmore Sets Eco-Friendly Standards
with All-Encompassing Green Program
PHOENIX, July 28, 2008 - The Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa is committed to setting the standard among resorts for an environmentally friendly operation with the implementation of an all-encompassing green program.
"Adopting environmentally friendly practices is no longer an option but a necessity, and at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa we are committed to becoming an industry leader in this growing trend," said Julia Thorn, director of corporate communications. "That's why we have developed our Green Initiative that is extraordinarily comprehensive and sustainable, covering every aspect of our operations and every department of the resort, from water-saving plans and biodegradable supplies to organic products in the spa."
The goal of the Green Initiative is to significantly reduce the Arizona Biltmore's global footprint, create a more efficient and environmentally friendly operation, and establish the Arizona Biltmore as an environmentally responsible resort. To achieve this, the resort has identified actions, initiatives and practices that have been put into affect throughout the resort; additional steps are planned this year and into 2009.
A Green Committee, composed of executives from every department of the resort, was established to oversee development and implementation of the plan, monitor and adjust as necessary the existing initiatives, and explore additional avenues of action.
