Commitment Level Certification
This certification only requires that basic commitments to sustainable practices are in place, such as recycling and energy & water conservation. This cursory level of recognition is meant for operators that have just started their environmental program efforts.*
*Operators are typically only supposed to stay at the commitment level for one 2-year cycle. HOWEVER, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, partners are allowed to re-certify at the commitment level for another 2-year cycle.
This certification requires that a number of several sustainable practices are fully implemented in areas such as recycling & waste reduction, energy & water conservation, environmental leadership and green meetings and events.
