Environmentally Conscious Practices
Viceroy Hotel Group strives to incorporate environmentally responsible and sustainable practices in all hotel and resort development and operations with its Second Nature program. By taking a team approach across all properties, the company raises awareness and influences behavior in order to preserve resources, reduce waste and decrease the company's carbon footprint as a leader among luxury green hotels.
Each Viceroy Hotel Group destination is engaged in an ongoing process of implementing environmental hotel and sustainability initiatives. This course of action begins by creating a written environmental/sustainability policy, and enacting a water and energy savings plan and comprehensive recycling programs—covering everything from paper, glass, plastic and cardboard to toner cartridges, fluorescent bulbs and electronics. Each eco friendly hotel property uses biodegradable cleaning products, has created incentive plans for employee use of carpools and/or mass transit, and has installed energy-efficient lighting and occupancy sensors throughout the destination.
