A&P2 for the Hospitality Industry - Connecticut

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CT DEP) is interested in the recent success of green hotel certification programs in New England. Green hoteliers in CT have expressed some interest in these programs and encouraged CT DEP to explore a green hotels certification program. The next steps by CT DEP would be to review existing programs and plan for creation of a certification program based on for example, the Maine program. Such a program would include self-certification using a program guide and checklist.

CT DEP plans to conduct a meeting with potential partners including State Tourism, Hotel and Motel Association, interested hotels, and others. The next step would be to adapt existing Maine green hotel program materials to Connecticut and add these to the CT DEP website.
