Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites Creates a Sustainability Action Plan

BWKelowna

June 20, 2013

Best Western Kelowna has been leading the way in reducing their environmental footprint for the past 20 years. With a geothermal and solar thermal system, low flow fixtures on every faucet and shower head, energy efficient lighting and an new LEED Silver hotel wing, this hotel is already well on their way to being the greenest hotel in Kelowna.

With the re-establishment of a solid green team and an environmental mission “to do everything economically feasible to leave our air, water and earth safe and clean for future generations”, Best Western Kelowna has created a set of sustainability goals along with a robust action plan to ensure their hotel is operating as sustainably as possible.

By working through a series of facilitated workshops, employees and management received training about sustainability and the business case for adopting enviornmentally and socially responsible practices that provide a return on investment. Strong goals and actions were identified using staff input, Green Tourism Canada criteria and Green Team engagement. This information was put together to create a five year sustainability action plan that was communicated to all staff in June, 2013.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes
    it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.

    work!

  17. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
