Green Lodging in New England

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description New England states are moving ahead promoting green lodging with a combination of established Green Hotel certification programs (in Vermont, Maine, and Rhode Island, see above), a green hotel network (in Boston, MA) and new and expanded Green Lodging programs planned for Connecticut and New Hampshire. U.S. EPA Region 1's Assistance and Pollution Prevention Office is helping to increase the coordination and planning between these programs by supporting a Hospitality Workgroup hosted by NEWMOA. EPA Headquarters is also participating in a national standard setting process for green meetings. The voluntary consensus process is being conducted by ASTM International, a national standard setting organization, in cooperation with the Convention Industry Council's (CIC) Green Meeting and Events Practices Panel.
