The Renaissance Arlington Capital View LEEDs the Way with Gold Certification
The Renaissance Arlington Capital View hotel was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED® Gold certification. The hotel's certification was based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impact the project itself and the broader community. Some of these features include: heat island reduction with green roof, guest bike program, more than 26 percent of building made of post-consumer recycled material, landscaping water usage reduced by 50 percent, energy efficient glass and lighting, and recyclable storage and collection. David Marriott, Marriott International's Chief Operations Officer - Eastern Region, The Americas, (pictured second from right) helped the hotel's employees unveil the plaque that was presented by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Marriott is committed to protecting the environment inside and beyond its hotels. Across the Marriott portfolio, there are more than 90 hotels that are LEED certified or registered by the USGBC. The company’s Spirit To Preserve® environmental strategy calls for: greening its multi-billion supply chain; further reducing energy and water consumption by 20 percent by 2020; empowering hotel development partners to build green hotels; educating and inspiring employees and guests to conserve and preserve the environment; and addressing environmental challenges through innovative conservation initiatives.
