Hospitality Green Certification

Organization(s) Rhode Island Dept. of Environmental Management
Project Description Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RI DEM), in partnership with the Rhode Island Hospitality & Tourism Association, the Providence Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Rhode Island Tourism Division, developed a Hospitality Green Certification Program, which began in the spring of 2007. The program features programs with Certification Workbooks for Lodging Facilities and for Restaurants, which were developed using Maine DEP's model. In addition to certification documents and a list of certified facilities, this webpage offers other helpful information on a variety of topics relevant to these facilities.

RI DEM approved the initial certifications in April, with an awards ceremony held in April 2008 at the Rhode Island Convention Center. At that ceremony, 17 lodging facilities, 13 restaurants, and 2 other hospitality businesses received recognition and awards as the first certified green hospitality facilities under this program.

Certifications will be followed by random inspections to begin in early 2009, and the point score necessary for certification will be gradually increased in future years.
