Go Green at Our Florida Beach Resort.
The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club has long been a member of Florida’s Green Lodging Program, certified by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The core requirements of the Green Lodging Program include:
- Water conservation
- Energy efficiency
- Clean air processes
Currently, less than 20% of Florida’s approximately 5,000 South Florida resorts have successfully completed the DEP’s Green Lodging certification process.
Additionally, we recently received the prestigious Green to Gold Award from the Economic Development Council (EDC) of Collier County for “best exemplifying green leadership.” The Green to Gold Award is presented to organizations that exhibit leadership in advocating the sustainable management of resources and the stewardship of the natural environment.
Among our resort’s initiatives have been more energy-efficient lighting and a greater emphasis on recycling processes – both in-room and throughout our Florida beach resort – to reduce our environmental footprint. For example:
- Where possible we use "Green Sealed" cleaning products and detergents. These items have been certified to meet or exceed government standards for reduced human and aquatic toxicity.
- On our golf course and grounds areas, we use EPA-approved, organically based fertilizers, nutrients and pesticides.
- Our Poolside Complex and Spa whirlpools utilize Saline Purification Systems, which provide the onsite production of the sanitizer necessary to maintain the water in a safe, healthy and algae-free condition.
- We use a computerized energy management system for air conditioning in all public areas which allows us to program cooling time and temperatures in our restaurants and meeting rooms.
- We have been increasing the use of high-efficiency lighting, which is up to 75% more efficient than comparable incandescent, lasting up to eight times as long.
- Low-flow fixtures and auto-flush systems are used extensively throughout the resort. We also have towel and linen re-use programs in place in all of our guest rooms and suites.
- A comprehensive recycling program is in place throughout the resort, including all guest rooms and suites. Recycled materials include glass, paper, aluminum and plastic, which are separated and compacted onsite before being transported to a regional recycling facility.
We invite all of our Florida beach resort and Florida golf resort neighbors to join us and help preserve our state’s natural beauty.
