The Four Seasons Hotel Miami receives green certification

Miami, FL— The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) welcomed the Four Seasons Hotel Miami to the Florida Green Lodging Program.

The voluntary state initiative provides the lodging industry with technical assistance, encouraging hotels and motels to adopt cost-saving ‘green’ practices that reduce waste and conserve natural resources.

The Four Seasons Hotel Miami reduces water consumption by using technologically advanced showerheads, faucets, spray nozzles and toilets.

The lodging facility also conserves energy through energy efficient appliances and an energy management system, while indoor air quality is improved through proper air conditioner maintenance and efficient filters.

Additionally, the hotel participates in recycling programs and purchases environmentally-friendly materials such as non-toxic cleaners, high-efficiency equipment and low-mercury light bulbs.

Launched in March 2004, the Florida Green Lodging Certification Program establishes environmental guidelines for hotels and motels to conserve natural resources and prevent pollution. With the addition of the Four Seasons Hotel Miami, the program has 16 hotels certified, with 13 in the process of becoming certified.
