Making Green and Sustainable Operating Decisions
InterContinental® Hotels Group has been at the forefront of energy management and we believe sustainability is part of the way we operate and do business. The InterContinental® Miami has a robust strategy in place that seeks to create sustainable partnerships with the community and is in line with the brand’s Green Engage energy management system, helping us monitor and manage energy, water and waste more efficiently.
InterContinental® Miami goes 100% Green with Wind Power
InterContinental® Miami invites you to stay green as we proudly announce that in 2012 the InterContinental® Miami became the largest green power purchaser in the State of Florida, we are a 100% Wind Energy and are an EPA’s Green Power Partner. The EPA estimates that InterContinental® Miami’s purchase avoids an estimated 10,665 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from 2,091 passenger vehicles each year or the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of 1,330 average American homes for one year.
Join us as we continue to work toward a better environment with a focus on design, operations and technologies that reduce energy, water and waste, cut carbon emissions, improve guest health and comfort, reduce operating and maintenance costs and raise guest and staff awareness of sustainability issues. Recent initiatives include:
- Downtown Miami’s only organic rooftop herb garden: This year we are expanding it through a partnership with Paradise Farms and have added citrus trees and will be adding vegetables for our Chef to source from
