Hotel Association of Canada, Hall of Fame

The Green Key Envir­onment Award of Excel­lence recog­nizes lodging prop­erties that have developed a culture towards integ­rating envir­on­mental man­agement prac­tices that improve everyday oper­a­tions and the bottom line, while main­taining quality service and meeting guest expect­a­tions.

Nestled in the heart of Jasper National Park for the past 80 years Pine Bun­galows is sur­rounded by a Spruce, Pine & Douglas Fir forest, located on the banks of the World Her­itage Ath­abasca River where wildlife abounds. Pine Bun­galows is recog­nized as one the Parks’ leaders in envir­on­mental stew­ardship and con­tinually explores oppor­tun­ities to trim its ‘waste’ line without reducing guests’ comfort and expect­a­tions. Respons­ib­ility to the envir­onment, the com­munity and economy in which the company operates is at the very heart of the business.

We are thrilled to award Pine Bun­galows with the 2016 Green Key Envir­onment Award of Excel­lence,” said Susie Grynol, Man­aging Dir­ector, Green Key Global. “Pine Bun­galows raises the bar in pro­moting and prac­ticing envir­on­mental stew­ardship to staff and guests while imple­menting ini­ti­atives that con­tribute to the long-term sus­tain­ab­ility of the property and its sur­roundings.”

The award was presented to Michal Wasuita, Owner and Operator, at the Hotel

Asso­ci­ation of Canada’s Annual Con­ference on Feb­ruary 16, 2017.
