Delta Chelsea Hotel
Toronto’s Delta Chelsea Hotel has won the 2008 Energy & Environment Award from the Hotel Association of Canada. The award recognizes properties that integrate environmental-management practices that improve everyday operations and the bottom line, while maintaining top-quality service and meeting guest expectations.
Through a partnership with Turtle Island Recycling, the Delta Chelsea has exceeded both industry standards and municipal targets in landfill diversion. While the City of Toronto set a target of 70-per-cent diversion for 2010, the Delta Chelsea, in 2008, diverted 76.31 per cent of its waste stream to recycling.
On Feb 1, the Chelsea implemented the LivClean Eco-Stay Program that will support emission-reduction projects across Canada and enable environmental initiatives within the hotel.
