Dear Hotel Community,
The BC Hotel Association is excited to announce two new complementary sustainability programs in partnership with FortisBC and GreenStep. In expanding our sustainability programming, these initiatives have been curated to both help members make steps toward improving efficiency and reducing their carbon footprint, while decreasing operating costs to assist with economic recovery from COVID-19.
FortisBC GoGreen Program:
FortisBC has funded an Energy Analyst role which has been filled by Dylan Tomlin, a 15-year veteran of the utility industry. Through the
initiative, all BCHA members are now eligible to receive an in-depth energy analysis of their operations to identify large energy conservation and cost-cutting projects.
This service complements other energy or sustainability assessments that hotel members may have received, providing a much more in-depth analysis of energy consumption and costs.
GreenStep EcoFund Program:
To amplify these conservation efforts, the
program helps hotels generate a budget to invest in the energy efficiency opportunities identified by the Energy Analyst, and to create a revenue stream for the BCHA to invest in research and advocacy.
Primary goals of both programs include identifying tens of thousands of dollars of annual cost savings and utility rebates, and providing hoteliers with the tools needed to become sustainability leaders, improving their environmental impact.
To reserve your spot for this program now,

We look forward to providing you with an expanded sustainability program!
