The Delaware Green Lodging program is a joint initiative by the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the Delaware Hotel & Lodging Association to promote pollution prevention (P2) practices in the tourism and hospitality industry. Green Lodging encourages hotels, resorts and other hospitality operations to be aware of their impact on the environment and to take steps to reduce these impacts while at the same time saving their facilities money.
Delaware Green Lodging is a self-certifying program where facilities must verify that they are at least practicing the Green Lodging "Basic Practices" and hopefully are doing much more.
Participating facilities in the program are encouraged to tell us about all of the "green" activities they are taking part in – and these will be included in the facility's profile elsewhere on the Delaware Green Lodging web site. Guests can then assess them and choose to stay at a hotel, motel or inn which offers the "green" amenities that they value.
