The Parkside Hotel & Spa Wins Sustainability Award
The Parkside Hotel & Spa is thrilled to announce that it won the Sustainability Award during the 2023 BC Tourism & Hospitality Conference in Prince George, March 1 to 3. Director of Operations Ashley Priest had the pleasure of accepting the award on behalf of the hotel.
"Words cannot express how honoured we are to have received this award," shares General Manager Trina White. "Thank you to our incredible guests, community, and our team members for their work in providing exemplary hospitality with a core focus on sustainability. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our environmental efforts and enhancing our guest's experience."
The Sustainability Award recognizes an individual, organization or consortium operating in British Columbia that has championed the implementation and/or education of sustainable and regenerative practices in their operations. The Parkside Hotel & Spa was selected as a winner, in great part, due to a strong commitment to working on goals and actions aligned with one or more of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The hotel proudly shared this nomination with Monte Creek Winery and Spirit of the West Adventures.
Since opening in 2009, The Parkside Hotel & Spa has been a pioneer in promoting sustainable tourism. Last year, the hotel reached a variety of sustainable milestones, moving from Carbon Neutral to Climate Positive and becoming Biosphere Certified. The hotel also joined Beyond Green, a curated portfolio of planet Earth's most sustainable hotels, resorts, and lodges, as the brand's first urban hotel and first Canadian property. Beyond Green provides a range of guest experiences in unique locations around the world. All members are subject to a rigorous vetting process, based on globally recognized sustainable tourism standards and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
