Hawaii Hotels Earn Green Awards from State

Apr 3, 2012

Five Hawaii hotels are among recipients of the state’s annual Green Business awards, which recognize companies and organizations that operate in a sustainable manner. According to, those properties include:
  • Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club, which recycles most of its construction and electronic waste, as well as uses motion-sensor lights and low-flow plumbing fixtures
  • Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, recognized for its reduced water usage, LED lighting, and adjustment of water heater settings
  • The Kahala Hotel and Resort, which uses seawater pumped from deep water wells to cool its chillers, along with other initiatives such as implementing Energy Star-rated equipment, light sensors, low ceiling fans, and low-flow showers and faucets
  • Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, for using recycled glass planters and drought-tolerant plants to help save more than 4.7 million gallons of water a year
  • Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel, whose variable-speed chillers and other energy-efficiency measures have reduced energy use by over 20 percent; an upgraded cooling tower saves more than 624,000 gallons of water each year
