Whistler Hotel Green Initiatives

4 Green KeyHere at the Aava, we strive to ensure our practices are in line for the good of the environment. Below are some of the features and actions we have taken.

We follow the principals of the Green Key program and are currently rated at 4 keys (out of a max. 5)!

Do you have any suggestions on what we can do to improve? We would love to hear from you!

Room & Building Features

  • High efficiency temperature controls
  • High efficiency LED, fluorescent light fixtures in over 80% of our building
  • Kohler low-flow toilets and shower fixtures
  • Mattresses are also constructed of recycled metals and woods, and incorporate special biodegradable foams and materials which are non-toxic to the environment
  • Use of Aveda, botanically based soaps and shampoo products in all guest areas
  • Use of "Energy Star" windows and appliances throughout building
  • Motion sensing light fixtures in select public areas

Some of Our Green Habits

  • Switch off excess lights and appliances when not in use
  • Use natural light and ventilation whenever and wherever possible
  • Turn off computers when not in use and set monitors to power off
  • Assign guests to surrounding rooms if the business volumes are low. A good room assignment plan can reduce space-conditioning costs significantly
  • Recycle all office paper, cardboard, glass, batteries, toner cartridges, bottles and cans
  • Use of recycled papers and guest supplies
  • Reuse scrap paper for notes
  • Double-sided photocopying
  • Use a bulletin board or the e-mail for memos instead of circulating many copies of the same item
  • Collect all newspaper and magazines from the lobby for recycling
  • Use refillable toner cartridges
  • Incorporation of non-chemical cleaning agents in our Housekeeping services where possible
  • Use of Phosphate-free laundry detergents
  • Revise purchasing procedures, "eco-purchasing" - such as ordering the correct products and exact amount required
  • Quarterly Environmental Team Meeting "Aava Green"
  • Alternate (every third day) linen exchange, and guest motivated towel re-use program
  • In-room and in-office recycling program
  • Can / bottle return
  • Donation of leftover soaps and shampoos
  • Hybrid hotel vehicle
  • Complimentary guest parking for all Hybrid vehicles
  • Recently completed environmental impact study to rate measure areas where improvements may be prioritized
