www.aubergeresorts.com" title="Earth Day">Earth Day 2012 just around the corner, Auberge Resorts introduced today a range of environmentally minded offerings at each of its luxury resorts across North America that will enable guests to share in the company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability. Auberge has consistently been a leader in sustainability among luxury resorts, and the resorts have each developed a new collection of “Earth Month” guest experiences available throughout the month of April.
“Auberge Resorts is committed to being a leader in environmentally responsible hospitality – what we call Responsible Luxury,” said, CEO, Auberge Resorts. “While much of this takes shape behind the scenes through our operating practices, resort development and overall efforts to protect the natural setting of each resort, we’ve also created a variety of unique ways to showcase this commitment to our guests, who are increasingly curious about the environmental impact of their vacations.”
The celebrations will kick off with “Earth Hour” on the evening of March 31, when guests will be able to experience the romantic benefits of going green. Resorts will set the mood with candlelight massages and fireside turn-down experiences, in addition to other unique programming lit solely by flickering candles and the stars above. A sampling of additional April Earth Month activities at each Auberge resort includes:
The company’s ongoing Planet Auberge sustainability efforts – infusing its corporate culture, business strategies, resort construction, operation and maintenance, and dedication to enhancing the well-being of guests, employees and local communities – have led to significant reductions in each resort’s carbon footprint. In 2011, flagship property Auberge du Soleil reduced its overall water consumption by nearly 15 percent, its total energy consumption by 2.5 percent and composted more than 36,000 gallons of food. Sister resort Calistoga Ranch replaced lawnmowers with Babydoll sheep to reduce the resort’s environmental impact and offers complimentary electric car-charging stations for guests (also available at Solage Calistoga). Auberge Resorts was the first hotel company to make a corporate commitment to sustainable spa operations through its involvement in the Green Spa Network – the premiere spa industry association dedicated to bringing greening and sustainability to the health, wellness and beauty community.
