Kermit the Frog once said, "It's not easy being green." But if Vermont's largest hotel can accomplish it with ease, Kermit may be singing a different tune soon. The Vermont Business Environmental Partnership has named the Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center as its latest, greenest partner in the Green Hotels in the Green Mountain State program.
According to the Vermont Business Environmental Partnership, a Green Hotel is any Vermont lodging establishment that solidifies its commitment to environmental excellence by achieving a set of environmental standards.
Although each property achieves these standards uniquely, each conducts an environmental opportunity assessment, adopts environmentally preferable practices, and develops an environmental management plan that guides its efforts to continually reduce the environmental consequences of its operations. This statewide voluntary, environmental technical assistance and business recognition program is designed to promote and recognize the work of Vermont lodgers who demonstrate daily that environmental and economic goals can be achieved simultaneously.
The Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center is just a few minutes from downtown Burlington and picturesque Lake Champlain. The hotel is nearby the Burlington International Airport and accessible by complimentary airport shuttle.
