The Rimrock Resort Hotel: ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

The management and staff of The Rimrock Resort Hotel are committed to the preservation of our environment. Recognizing the responsibility we have both locally and globally, we have developed a number of programs to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle wherever possible – from energy-efficient lighting, to water conservation systems, naturalized landscaping and an extensive recycling program, to name a few. We encourage all stakeholders to help us preserve our environment by participating in our Green Program.

We have been a partner of the Green Key Eco-Rating Program since 2011. Under this program, we will conduct an extensive self-audit every year. This audit will greatly helps us determine the strengths and weaknesses of our green program and set an action plan. We have obtained 4 Green Keys for the year 2013, which stands for:

“A hotel that has shown national industry leadership and commitment to protecting the environment through wide ranging policies and practices. Mature programs that involve management, employees, guests, and the public have shown substantial and measurable results.”

We believe that our corporate responsibility goes beyond our property borders and we endeavour to cooperate with our neighbours and our suppliers in order to conduct our business in a manner that respects the environment. Every effort will be made to conserve resources throughout our operations.

The Rimrock Resort Hotel is working towards continued improvement in the development of programs designed to minimize environmental impacts generated from our activities, products and services. We will:

  • Endeavour to go beyond the normal regulations and standards in the industry;
  • Lead by example;
  • Purchase local products where available;
  • Support pollution prevention and minimization programs in the workplace;
  • Use energy efficient equipment and procedures;
  • Track, measure and reduce our carbon footprint;
  • Foster relationships with our community, suppliers, contractors, government agencies and other organizations engaged in conserving the environment;
  • Review environmental objectives and practices on a yearly basis, as well as monitor performance;
  • Avoid the perception of “green washing”;

The Rimrock’s ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY will always be readily available to employees, guests and the community stakeholders. The growth of the Rimrock depends on the willingness of everyone involved to act responsively - for the sake of our own future.
